Oracle has released VirtualBox 7.0 and the latest version of the popular open source virtualization software brings a number of new features that should make it easier to install Windows 11 in a virtual machine, an updated 3D graphics stack, and support for full disk encryption of virtual machines.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.
