This recommended update provides version 5.0.22 for virtualbox:

- Version bump to 5.0.22 (released 2016-06-16 by Oracle) This is a
maintenance release. The following items were fixed and/or added: VMM:
fixes for certain Intel Atom hosts (bug #14915) VMM: properly restore
the complete FPU state for 32-bit guests on 64-bit hosts on Intel Sandy
Bridge and Ivy Bridge CPUs VMM: new I/O-APIC implementation fixing
several bugs and improving the performance under certain conditions (bug
#15295 and others) VMM: fixed a potential Linux guest panic on AMD hosts
VMM: fixed a potential hang with 32-bit EFI guests on Intel CPUs (VT-x
without unrestricted guest execution) GUI: don't allow to start
subsequent separate VM instances GUI: raised upper limit for video
capture screen resolution (bug #15432) GUI: warn if the VM has less than
128MB VRAM configured and 3D enabled Main: when monitoring DNS
configuration changes on Windows hosts avoid false positives from
competing DHCP renewals. This should fix NAT link flaps when host has
multiple DHCP configured interfaces, in particular when the host uses
OpnVPN. Main: properly display an error message if the VRDE server
cannot be enabled at runtime, for example because another service is
using the same port NAT: Initialize guest address guess for wildcard
port-forwarding rules with default guest address (bug #15412) VGA: fix
for a problem which made certain legacy guests crash under certain
conditions (bug #14811) ACPI: properly notify the guest if the ACPI
battery state changed OVF: fixed import problems for some appliances
using an AHCI controller created by 3rd party applications SDK: reduced
memory usage in the webservice Java bindings Linux hosts: EL 6.8 fix
(bug #15411) Linux hosts: Linux 4.7 fix (bug #15459) Linux Additions:
Linux 4.7 fixes (bug #15444) Linux Additions: fix for certain 32-bit
guests (5.0.18 regression; bug #15320) Linux Additions: fixed mouse
pointer offset (5.0.18 regression; bug #15324) Linux Additions: made old
X.Org releases work again with kernels 3.11 and later (5.0.18
regression; bug #15319) Linux Additions: fixed X.Org crash after hard
guest reset (5.0.18 regression; bug #15354) Linux Additions: don't stop
the X11 setup if loading the shared folders module fails (5.0.18
regression) Linux Additions: don't complain if the Drag and Drop service
is not available on the host Solaris Additions: added support for
1.18 Local openSUSE specific changes: File "changeset_60565.diff" is no
longer needced and has been removed. Version bump to 5.0.20 (released
2016-04-28 by Oracle) This is a maintenance release. The following items
were fixed and/or added: Storage: fixed a regression causing write
requests from the BIOS to cause a Guru Meditation with the LsiLogic SCSI
controller (5.0.18 regression; bug #15317) Storage: several emulation
fixes in the BusLogic SCSI controller emulation NAT Network: support TCP
in DNS proxy (same problem as in bug #14736 for NAT) NAT: rework
handling of port-forwarding rules (bug #13570) NAT: rewrite host
resolver to handle more query types and make it asynchronous so that a
stalled lookup doesn't block all NAT traffic Snapshots: don't crash when
restoring a snapshot which has more network adapters than the current
state (ie when the snapshot uses ICH9 and the current state uses PIIX3)
Guest Control: various bugfixes for the copyfrom and copyto commands /
API (bug #14336) VBoxManage: list processor features on list hostinfo
(bug #15334) Linux hosts: fix for Linux 4.5 if CONFIG_NET_CLS_ACT is
enabled (bug #15327) Windows Additions: fixed performance issues with
PowerPoint 2010 and the WDDM graphics drivers if Aero is disabled
