The VBox implementation will start soon. We are finishing to consolidate what we have now, esp. the new architecture.

Can you the describe the new architecture vs the old architecture ? What are the major changes ? Why were they needed, as opposed to evolutionary incremental changes of IOS and VPCS to the old architecture ?

You can use Gns3's cloud node with udp tunnel to make a connection with virtualbox.

UDPTunnel on VirtuaBox:

The same principle works with GNS3

If there is any kind of (user experience) degrade, I would keep using the old 0.8.x series. Ugly tricks don't fly here.

The main goal is to prepare the future of GNS3, be adaptable and modular. IOU, IOS and VPCS support are only the beginning... we are still in an alpha stage.

Some of the major changes are:

- We use Python 3, but this doesn't really matter to users ;)
- Be non-blocking (asynchronous).
- Modular and adaptable.
- Clear client/server architecture.
- Web ready.

Well of course this degrade the user experience but as I said, we are only in an alpha stage and Vbox support is gonna be back soon. Please judge us on the final result. A transition period is never comfortable.

Cheers,

Okay, this makes sense.
Python 3 is not supported by the VirtualBox API sadly. It still must be done with Python 2.
