  • We changed he server configuration and that unintentionally disabled the downloads, but they are back up now.

  • Getting VirtualBox import error with Bitcraze_VM_0.5.ova (direct download)
    Running Fedora 20 with VirtualBox 4.3.6 r91406.

    Could not create the clone medium ‘/VirtualMachines/VirtualBox/Bitcraze VM 0.5/Bitcraze VM 0.5-disk1.vmdk’.

    Is there a checksum I can use to verify the download? I looked but did not see one.
