VirtualBox 6.1.18 comes about three months after VirtualBox 6.1.16, and it’s the first release to introduce full support for the latest and greatest Linux 5.10 LTS kernel series, which is available for both Linux host and guests. Of course, this means that you’ll be able to run GNU/Linux distributions powered by the Linux 5.10 LTS kernel as a virtual machine inside VirtualBox, as well as to install VirtualBox on a GNU/Linux system running Linux kernel 5.10 LTS. Also for Linux systems, this release improves the Guest Additions by adding better build compatibility with CentOS 8.2-2004 systems and later, as well as with systems running Linux kernels 3.2.0 through 3.2.50, and fixes a virtual machine segfault error that occurred on copy/paste operations when using the shared clipboard on X11.
