New build and updates for Parallels Desktop 4.0

Fri, Jan 9, 2009


Parallels Desktop, the virtualization software that lets you run XP and Vista on your Mac, introduced a new build with more features this week.  Parallels has been a largely successful product, and is one of the few non-Apple software titles currently sold in Apple stores.  That said, Parallels 4.0 was criticized by some users as being a step backwards (a result of being released too soon) as there were many complaints of extremely sluggish performance.  Luckily, that is one of the number of features included in the update.  One noteworthy feature in the new build is the ability “to drag Windows files to Mac applications in the Dock.”  Not too shabby.

You can download a trial version of the software over here.
