VirtualBox 6.0.10 Release, Available for Ubuntu 18.04 and Debian 10 'Buster'

Oracle VM VirtualBox (formerly Sun VirtualBox, innotek VirtualBox and Sun xVM VirtualBox) is a free and cross-platform virtualization application that provides a family of powerful x86 virtualization tools designed for desktop, server and embedded use. VirtualBox can be used on Linux, Solaris, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows platforms to run virtual machines of any of the aforementioned operating systems, as well as any BSD distribution, IMB OS/2 flavors, DOS, Netware, L4, QNX, and JRockitVE.
It's portable

Oracle VirtualBox is portable, requires no hardware virtualization, includes guest additions and great hardware support. It also features USB device support, full ACPI support, multiscreen resolutions, and built-in iSCSI support. Support for PXE network boot, multi-generation branched snapshots, remote machine display, extensible RDP authentication, and USB over RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) is also integrated in Oracle VirtualBox.

features
  • Modularity. Oracle VM VirtualBox has an extremely modular design with well-defined internal programming interfaces and a client/server design. This makes it easy to control it from several interfaces at once: for example, you can start a virtual machine in a typical virtual machine GUI and then control that machine from the command line, or possibly remotely. Oracle VM VirtualBox also comes with a full Software Development Kit: even though it is Open Source Software, you don't have to hack the source to write a new interface for Oracle VM VirtualBox.
  • Virtual machine descriptions in XML. The configuration settings of virtual machines are stored entirely in XML and are independent of the local machines. Virtual machine definitions can therefore easily be ported to other computers.
  • Guest Additions for Windows and Linux. Oracle VM VirtualBox has special software that can be installed inside Windows and Linux virtual machines to improve performance and make integration much more seamless. Among the features provided by these Guest Additions are mouse pointer integration and arbitrary screen solutions (e.g. by resizing the guest window).
  • Virtual USB Controllers. Oracle VM VirtualBox implements a virtual USB controller and allows you to connect arbitrary USB devices to your virtual machines without having to install device specific drivers on the host.
  • Remote Desktop Protocol. Unlike any other virtualization software, Oracle VM VirtualBox fully supports the standard Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). A virtual machine can act as an RDP server, allowing you to "run" the virtual machine remotely on some thin client that merely displays the RDP data.
  • USB over RDP. With this unique feature, a virtual machine that acts as an RDP server can still access arbitrary USB devices that are connected on the RDP client. This way, a powerful server machine can virtualize a lot of thin clients that merely need to display RDP data and have USB devices plugged in.
  • Shared folders. Like many other virtualization solutions, for easy data exchange between hosts and guests, Oracle VM VirtualBox allows for declaring certain host directories as "shared folders", which can then be accessed from within virtual machines.
 

How to install Oracle Virtual Box 6.0.10 on Ubuntu and Linux Mint System :

To install/update Oracle Virtual Box 6.0.10 on Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver, Ubuntu 18.10, Ubuntu 19.04 Disco Dingo, Cosmic Cuttlefish, Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, Linux Mint 19.1, Elementary OS 5 'Juno', Peppermint, Deepin 15.8, Deepin 15.9, Linux Lite 4.2 and other Ubuntu derivative systems, open a new Terminal window and bash (get it?) in the following commands:

Download package :
wget -c https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.0.10/virtualbox-6.0_6.0.10-132072~Ubuntu~bionic_amd64.deb

Setting permission and install deb package :
sudo chmod +x virtualbox-6.0_6.0.10-132072~Ubuntu~bionic_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i virtualbox-6.0_6.0.10-132072~Ubuntu~bionic_amd64.deb  

Note: The package architecture has to match the Linux kernel architecture, that is, if you are running a 64-bit kernel, install the appropriate AMD64 package (it does not matter if you have an Intel or an AMD CPU). Mixed installations (e.g. Debian/Lenny ships an AMD64 kernel with 32-bit packages) are not supported. To install VirtualBox anyway you need to setup a 64-bit chroot environment.

Debian 10 "buster" released & Available to Download

The Debian project has announced the release of Debian 10 (code-named "buster"), the latest stable version from the popular community project and the world's largest Linux distribution whose beginnings date back to 1993.

Debian 10 "buster" ships with several desktop applications and environments. Amongst others it now includes the desktop environments:
  • Cinnamon 3.8,
  • GNOME 3.30,
  • KDE Plasma 5.14,
  • LXDE 0.99.2,
  • LXQt 0.14,
  • MATE 1.20,
  • Xfce 4.12.

In this release, GNOME defaults to using the Wayland display server instead of Xorg. Wayland has a simpler and more modern design, which has advantages for security. However, the Xorg display server is still installed by default and the default display manager allows users to choose Xorg as the display server for their next session. 

Debian 10 "buster" includes numerous updated software packages (over 62% of all packages in the previous release), such as:
  • Apache 2.4.38
  • BIND DNS Server 9.11
  • Chromium 73.0
  • Emacs 26.1
  • Firefox 60.7 (in the firefox-esr package)
  • GIMP 2.10.8
  • GNU Compiler Collection 7.4 and 8.3
  • GnuPG 2.2
  • Golang 1.11
  • Inkscape 0.92.4
  • LibreOffice 6.1
  • Linux 4.19 series
  • MariaDB 10.3
  • OpenJDK 11
  • Perl 5.28
  • PHP 7.3
  • PostgreSQL 11
  • Python 3 3.7.2
  • Ruby 2.5.1
  • Rustc 1.34
  • Samba 4.9
  • systemd 241
  • Thunderbird 60.7.2
  • Vim 8.1
  • more than 59,000 other ready-to-use software packages, built from nearly 29,000 source packages.

With this broad selection of packages and its traditional wide architecture support, Debian once again stays true to its goal of being the universal operating system. It is suitable for many different use cases: from desktop systems to netbooks; from development servers to cluster systems; and for database, web and storage servers. At the same time, additional quality assurance efforts like automatic installation and upgrade tests for all packages in Debian's archive ensure that "buster" fulfills the high expectations that users have of a stable Debian release.

Vivaldi 2.6 Release, Install on Ubuntu / Debian and MX Linux

Vivaldi is a feature-rich, next-generation web browser application based on the powerful and open source Chromium project, from which the popular Google Chrome web browser is derived. The application is freely distributed and cross-platform, created by the former CEO of Opera Software, built using modern Web technologies like React, JavaScript, Node.js, and Browserify.
A web browser designed for you

The main goal of the Vivaldi project is to make a highly flexible, low on resources and extremely fast web browser software that works across all mainstream computer operating systems, a web browser that is rich in functionality and designed for you, the user.

Vivaldi 2.6: What is new

The big new feature in Vivaldi 2.6 is support for ad-blocking on abusive sites. The feature is enabled by default; it uses Google's blocklist to determine whether to block advertisement on sites but hosts it on its own server for improved privacy as Vivaldi installations will retrieve the Vivaldi-hosted version when updates are available and not the version hosted by Google.

Vivaldi 2.6 features other improvements that improve the browser in one way or another. Here is a short list of what is new:
  • Performance improvements -- Users who work with a lot of tabs should notice performance improvements in the new release.
  • Saved Passwords filter -- Settings > Privacy and filter features an option to filter by account name or website.
  • Unread Tabs -- The Window Panel displays the number of unread tabs (opened in background) as a badge.
  • Find in Page -- You may use Ctrl-Enter to open any link that the on-page search finds.
  • Search favicon in search field -- The favicon of the selected search engine is displayed now in the search field for easier identification.
  • Razer Chroma headphone devices support added -- Razer Chroma support was introduced in Vivaldi 2.5.
