VirtualBox 1.6.0 for OpenSolaris has been released

Sun xVM VirtualBox software 1.6.0 has been released and it's the first non-beta version for Solaris. I just removed the old 1.5.5 beta package, installed 1.6.0 with a quick pkgadd and VirtualBox is running perfectly without any hack, as I previously wrote here.

If you're upgrading from a previous version, as I did, pay attention to the warning in the download page:
Warning: saved states and snapshots are not compatible between different versions of VirtualBox. Merge all snapshots, restore all saved states and shutdown all VMs properly before attempting to upgrade.
Have fun with VirtualBox on your Solaris!

Loreena McKennitt - Penelope's song

Now that the time has come
Soon gone is the day
There upon some distant shore
You'll hear me say

Long as the day in the summer time
Deep as the wine-dark sea
I'll keep your heart with mine
Till you come to me

There like a bird I'd fly
High through the air
Reaching for the sun's full rays
Only to find you there

And in the night when our dreams are still
Or when the wind calls free
I'll keep your heart with mine
Till you come to me

Now that the time has come
Soon gone is the day
There upon some distant shore
You'll hear me say

Long as the day in the summer time
Deep as the wine-dark sea
I'll keep your heart with mine.
Till you come to me

Loreena McKennitt - Dante's prayer

When the dark wood fell before me
And all the paths were overgrown
When the priests of pride say there is no other way
I tilled the sorrows of stone

I did not believe because I could not see
Though you came to me in the night
When the dawn seemed forever lost
You showed me your love in the light of the stars

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Then the mountain rose before me
By the deep well of desire
From the fountain of forgiveness
Beyond the ice and the fire

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me

Though we share this humble path, alone
How fragile is the heart
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

Breathe life into this feeble heart
Lift this mortal veil of fear
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears
We'll rise above these earthly cares

Cast your eyes on the ocean
Cast your soul to the sea
When the dark night seems endless
Please remember me.
Please remember me.
Please remember me.
