    Well, it's getting near that time of year again when we should be seeing the latest and greatest from Parallels. However, I've seen suprisingly little information about the next version this year and I'm wondering if the COVID pandemic has caused some slippage in the release schedule? Anyone heard anything definite regarding this?

    We do not have any official information regarding the release. If there is it will be communicated to all our users.

    Well if history is anything to go by it will be sometime this month. As it's an upgrade I can wait.

    Booting into Windows from Mac is too slow generally and the black screen whilst waiting for boot is a nuisance. I am using a 2019 27 inch 5K iMac running the latest version of Catalina. Parallels 16

    I feel like the problem maybe on the parallels tools on the PD16. When I am using another VM windows 10 with the older version of parallels tools installed, it feels much master...
