After the presentation which used virtualbox I did the upgrade but I noticed last friday that remote desktop support wasn't working anymore (which I needed at that moment). I found out that 'VRDE' support (virtual remote desktop extension) is now part of the extension pack. VirtualBox asks for this extension pack once but you need to install it by hand.

Did the upgrade and installed the extension pack and now everything works again. I would have liked a bit more warning: the only thing warned about was that the extension pack was needed for USB support.

So now I can run VBoxHeadless again and portforward the remote desktop port over ssh. I'm not opening that port to the big bad internet: I see enough portscans for it.
