This section summarizes the changes between VirtualBox versions

This section summarizes the changes between VirtualBox versions. Note that this is
not a detailed changelog and not all changes are listed. VirtualBox version numbers
consist of three numbers separated by dots where the first number represents the
major version, the 2nd number the minor version and the 3rd one the build number.
Build numbers of official releases are always even. An odd build number represents
an internal development or test build.
