Has anyone tried out Virtual Box 6.1 series? Versions 5.2 and 6.0 go unsupported around July 2020 per the Virtual Box website.

From download site of Virtualbox:
If you're looking for the latest VirtualBox 6.0 packages, see VirtualBox 6.0 builds. Please also use version 6.0 if you need to run VMs with software virtualization, as this has been discontinued in 6.1. Version 6.0 will remain supported until July 2020.
If you're looking for the latest VirtualBox 5.2 packages, see VirtualBox 5.2 builds. Please also use version 5.2 if you still need support for 32-bit hosts, as this has been discontinued in 6.0. Version 5.2 will remain supported until July 2020.
Software virtualization, what does it mean?

I always d/l my new version of Oracle VB here https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads including Extension Pack

NEVER download them here where they add it to the new Boinc version.....always do that separate and then reboot
