1ère version de maintenance pour le logiciel de virtualisation récemment tombé sous la tutelle de Sun Microsystem, j'ai nommé VirtualBox.
Dans cette version 1.6.2, Sun se permet de faire quelques corrections sur les nouveautés apportées par la branche 1.6 : Les performances du SATA sous Vista, la compatibilité avec le kernel 2.6.26 ou encore quelques problèmes de crash du module virtualbox sous Linux.

Pour le reste du changelog c'est par ici :
