A preview version of Boxes was introduced in GNOME 3.4. With GNOME 3.6, this application is joining the growing family of new GNOME applications.
A development version of Boxes was used for various screenshots included in these release notes.
A lot of effort has been put into making Boxes work smoothly, e.g. when resizing the window of a running virtual machine. The new features implemented in 3.6 include:
Search: Both inside Boxes and in the overview mode of GNOME Shell.
Much improved look and feel and animations.
Reworked selection mode to make more consistent with GNOME Documents.
Allow customizing a box memory and disk size before it's created.
Make it possible to force the shutdown of hung boxes through an application menu item.
Allow renaming of boxes.
Indicate installations in progress.
Allow favoriting boxes.
Create virtual machines based on host capabilities and architecture.
