    I have checked with Apple regarding nested virtualization and they informed me that it is already supported & fully supported in VMWare Fusion. Can we enable this please? This is preventing me from using Docker directly within my WIndows 10 VM.

    I had my hoping for this to be a feature.. This means I cannot run WSL using Apple's Hypervisor with Parallels. Frankly, this disappoints me...

    @Dmitry@Parallels Where can I go to get this feature on the radar? I'm disappointed this didn't make it into the PD17 release...

    I'd like to see this happen as well. Fusion has that for 1 year...

    @Maria@Parallels Would you have any input & direction for us to get this much needed feature some traction??

    While it's not in 17.1.1 release note, it's now possilbe to enable nested virtualization with apple hypervisor. Just choose parallels hypervisor, check nested virtualization then switch back. Now boot your VM and you have nested virtualization.
    But I suspect that it's not that we get apple hypervisor with nested virtualization but instead apple hypervisor isn't used anymore. Now I always get all the memory allocated (regardless of nested virtualization enabled or not) when starting a VM and it used to be a dynamic allocation with apple hypervisor...

    @LunL Are you saying that with Apple M1 Processors there is now nested virtualization with version 17.1.1? I am not seeing that option. Or are you just referring to the Intel flavor of Apple Mac.
