Supports Ubuntu 11.10, Linux migrations
Parallels has updated their recently-released Desktop 7 for Mac virtualization product, improving support for non-English keyboards, support for Ubuntu 11.10 and improving the full-screen experience, now allowing users to scale the virtual machine screen to fit the screen while retaining the resolution. The update, labeled build 7.0.15050, also introduces the ability to install OS X Lion into a virtual machine using the Install Lion.app installer from the Mac App Store.
When it was first released in early October, Parallels 7 offered users the ability to install the Windows 8 Developer Preview with one click. By now adding OS X Lion itself to the list of virtualized environments, the company hopes that the updated v7 will attract greater attention from developers who want to build and test multi-platform applications.
Current users can update Parallels from within the app by selecting the Parallels Desktop menu and checking for updates.
