Package "remotebox"

This package belongs to a PPA: GetDeb Apps

Name: remotebox


Open Source VirtualBox Client with Remote Management
RemoteBox allows you to administer an installation of
VirtualBox residing on another machine such as a server,
as if it was installed locally. You can also interact with
the displays of the guests. This allows you to treat
VirtualBox much more like an installation of Xen,
KVM or VMware ESX. A summary of some of the features of
RemoteBox are listed below:

* Open source VirtualBox client with a graphical (GTK+)
* Remote management of VirtualBox and its guests
* No web server such as Apache or IIS is required to run
* No compilation is required - written entirely in Perl
* View and interact with the guest's display via RDP,
including sound.
* Create and edit guests
* Configure processor, display, input devices,
audio, I/O ports, and shared folders
* Set the guest BIOS configuration including the
BIOS image
* Set advanced options such as HPET, Page Fusion,
Large Pages, CPU Hotplugging, CPU Throttling etc
* Attach USB devices and set USB device filters
* Stop, start, pause and save guest states
* Provision and attach storage including hard disks,
CDs/DVDs and floppy disks
* Configure networking including host only networks
with DHCP servers
* Supports guest snapshots
* Compatible with VirtualBox running on Linux, Windows,
Mac OS X and Solaris
* RemoteBox runs on Linux, *BSD and Mac OS X
* Use RemoteBox as an alternative GUI for managing local
guests if desired

Version: 1.8-1~getdeb1 2014-05-16 21:10:32 UTC

remotebox (1.8-1~getdeb1) trusty; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version
    - Added option to automatically start chosen guests when the host system
      This requires some server side configuration before it can be used.
      the RemoteBox manual for more information.
    - Added option to set the start delay on an autostarting guest so that
    guests can be started up in a specific sequence if required.
    - Added option to set the shutdown type on a guest when the host is
    - Added VirtualBox preference to set the location of the autostart
    - Snapshot Tree: Moved 'current state' underneath the most recent
    snapshot in
      the tree
    - Added state icons to the snapshot list, which indicate if a snapshot is
    an online or offline snapshot
    - Optimized list handling in several places which should improve
      and remember selections on list refreshes where practical.
    - Added additional information when a storage medium is selected in the
    - Added additional guest keyboard shortcuts, Ctrl-Alt-(F4, F5, F6, F8,
    F9, F10, F11)
    - Added ability to add, remove and edit NAT Networks via the VirtualBox
      preferences menu item. Port forwarding rules must be configured
      elsewhere for the moment.
    - Added option to set the network attachment type in the guest settings
    to 'NAT Network'. These are named NAT networks which are subtly different
      to just 'NAT'.
    - Added option to set the snapshot folder location for a guest
    - Added OS icons for various editions of MacOS X.
    - Added support for guest groups. Groups are shown in a tree-fashion
    which is somewhat visually different to VirtualBox. Setting guest groups
    is fairly rudimentary at the moment requiring you to enter the group in
    the form of '/group/subgroup'.
    - Added 'Expand All Groups' and 'Collapse All Groups' buttons. The last
    used button is remembered for subsequent refreshes of the guest list
    - Fixed some Windows guest icons.
    - Fixed a bug when creating Host-Only networks. An associated virtual
    DHCP server wasn't getting created which would cause invalid object
    references and ultimately made the Host-Only network feature useless.
    - Fixed a bug when entering folders in the remote file chooser that
    denied permission but the location was still updated. Now also warns
    that you don't have permission to enter that folder
    - Fixed a bug where a medium would be masked out in lists if another
    medium with the same name existed.
    - Fixed a bug where the Video Memory could get erroneously pegged to 1MB
    on the first opening on the settings dialog.
    - Inaccessible guests are now filtered from the list of guests and a
    warning issued in the message log. RemoteBox has never handled
    inaccessible guests well and for the most part the cause is generally the
    user manipulating guests without VirtualBox's knowledge.
    - Various GUI tweaks

Version: 1.7-1~getdeb1 2014-03-30 07:00:26 UTC

remotebox (1.7-1~getdeb1) saucy; urgency=low

  * New upstream version
    - Added Video Capture support for the guest's display
    - FreeRDP (aka xfreerdp) is now the default and recommended RDP client.
    If you
      used rdesktop previously, your preferences will follow however you can
      update your preferences if you desire. Go to File->RemoteBox
      Preferences and under RDP client, change it to:
      xfreerdp -g %Xx%Y --plugin cliprdr --plugin rdpsnd -T "%n - RemoteBox"
      NOTE: You may need to install the freerdp package for your operating
    - Added additional substitutions for use with the RDP Client preference.
    These are:
        %X - The Auto-Hint Resolution width
        %Y - The Auto-Hint Resolution height
        %D - The Auto-Hint Resolution depth
      These can be used for specifying desired resolutions with your RDP
    - Fixed a bug where cached information (which was potentially invalid)
    was not flushed completely across a new connection to a server
    - Fixed a guest cloning bug where the machine reference was being used
    before the guest was fully cloned, causing GUI deadlock until the clone
    had completed
    - Fixed adding a host only network interfaces where the new interface
    would not immediately show up. Primarily only affected windows hosts
    - Fixed a bug preventing logging in when using Perl 5.18
      (Fedora 20, OpenSUSE 13.1, NetBSD 6, FreeBSD etc)
    - Improved remote file path handling across disparate operating systems
    - Improved remote file dialogs
    - Improved progress dialogs. They show time remaining where available and
    can be cancelled where VirtualBox allows.
    - Spin boxes now accept case insensitive unit qualifiers where
      (eg MB, GB, TB) for specifying memory and disk sizes
      (eg ms, secs, mins) for specifying time
    - Worked around a bug where VirtualBox strips the leading path of a
    location on a reload when a double / is found in the path. This could
    cause disks to be inaccessible (due to incorrect path) when
    VirtualBox is reloaded.
    - Various GUI tweaks
