Parallels Desktop for Mac

Parallels today offered a final version of its Desktop for Mac update, bringing support for Intel-based Macs with any memory configuration. Previously, users were limited and required users to run a utility to obtain compatiblity with Mac with memory configurations larger than 2GB. The new update, available previously as a release candidate in final testing, offers compatibility with Apple's Mac Pros with up to 16GB of RAM, and the full line of Core 2 Duo iMacs as well as brings a new virtual disk cache policy option for optimizing either Mac OS X or the guest operating system . It also brings support for Windows Vista as a guest OS, support for the yet-to-be-released Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard" as a primary OS, and better USB support, including support for isynchronous devices and Windows Mobile 5 devices.

In addition, the update brings a number of other enhancements, including an improved Parallels Tools package, and full support for OpenBSD 3.8 as a guest operating system. The company also said that the update offers better video output improvement and acceleration; improved keyboard support with Eject CD key support, left/right Shift/Ctrl/Alt (Option)/Windows keys; improved performance with first-time access to Shared Folders; clipboard synchronization tool fixes; and improved sound playback and recording.

The full version is available for $80 and it is a free update for all registered users.
