So does LHC and LHC-dev support this new release yet? Or should we hold off updating until the Project(s) run it thru it's paces, or are WE the testers?

Win11pro with Virtualbox 7.0.14 (including ExtensionPack) was downloading
for Atlas the ATLAS_vbox_3.01_image.vdi (1.5 GByte).
Is this a new .vdi?
