Support for OpenGL 2.0 for Windows, Linux and Solaris guests

# GUI: added mini toolbar for fullscreen and seamless mode (Thanks to Huihong Luo)
# GUI: redesigned settings dialogs
# GUI: allow to create/remove more than one host-only network adapters (non Windows hosts)
# GUI: display estimated time for long running operations (e.g. OVF import/export)
# GUI: fixed rare hangs when open the OVF import/export wizards (bug #4157)
# 3D support: fixed VM crashes for client applications using incorrect OpenGL states
# 3D support: fixed memory corruption when querying for supported texture compression formats
# 3D support: fixed incorrect rendering of glDrawRangeElements
# 3D support: fixed memory leak when using VBOs
# 3D support: fixed glew library detection
# 3D support: fixed random textures corruption
# VRDP: support Windows 7 RDP client
# Networking: fixed another problem with TX checksum offloading with Linux kernels up to version 2.6.18
# NAT: fixed “open ports on virtual router - 513, 514” (forum)
# NAT: allow to configure socket and internal parameters
# NAT: allow to bind sockets to specific interface
# PXE boot: significant performance increase (VT-x/AMD-V only)
# VHD: properly write empty sectors when cloning of VHD images (bug #4080)
# VHD: fixed crash when discarding snapshots of a VHD image
# VHD: fixed access beyond the block bitmap which could lead to arbitrary crashes
# VBoxManage: fixed incorrect partition table processing when creating VMDK files giving raw partition access (bug #3510)
# VBoxManage: support cloning to existing image file
# OVF: several OVF 1.0 compatibility fixes
# OVF: fixed exporting of disk images when multiple virtual machines are exported at once
# Virtual mouse device: eliminated micro-movements of the virtual mouse which were confusing some applications (bug #3782)
# Shared Folders: sometimes a file was created using the wrong permissions (2.2.0 regression; bug #3785)
# Shared Folders: allow to change file attributes from Linux guests and use the correct file mode when creating files
# Shared Folders: some content was incorrectly written under certain conditions (bug #1187)

# Windows host installer: VirtualBox Python API can now be installed automatically (requires Python and Win32 Extensions installed)
# USB: Support for high-speed isochronous endpoints has been added. In addition, read-ahead buffering is performed for input endpoints (currently Linux hosts only). This should allow additional devices to work, notably webcams (bug #242).
# USB: fixed error handling for some USB dongles
# Web service: fixed inability to handle NULL pointers for object arguments, which are valid values for a lot of APIs, in both the raw and the object-oriented web service.
