Major Parallels Desktop for Mac Update Ships
Parallels shipped a major update to its virtualization software for Macintoshes using the Intel platform. Although the upgrade would be provided at no cost to current users, those wishing to purchase the software will need to pay $79.99 USD.
Among the new features is Coherence, which allows Windows applications to operate like native Mac applications by appearing in the dock.
Also added in this version is Transporter, which allows the movement of settings, files, and applications from one virtual machine to another without a need to reinstall, and plug-and-play support for USB 2.0 devices.
However, in what is probably the most important new feature, those using Boot Camp will now be able to use the partition as a virtual machine within Mac OS X without a need to reboot.
