I upgraded to 1920 over my 1918 install. I then rebooted.
Everyone, especially Parallels: A reboot NEEDS to be forced in the installer. Parallels is loading components at boot time, and without a reboot after an upgrade you are mixing different versions of the software together. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I have had no problems at all, and the sound problem is fixed. I still need to sleep the machine once to get VT-x working.
I am running a Mac Pro 2.66 with 4GB of RAM and an X1900 video card. I give Parallels 1500MB of RAM. I even ran an XP and Vista 5728 VM at the same time with no issues. (Though Vista does use 100% of 1 CPU even when idle.)
My enter key on my keypad works. My networking works fine.
I've been running the new version for a couple hours, and I used 1918 extensively last night. Based on what behavior I have seen in both builds, I'd say RC2 is ready to go.
I had -tons- of problems with older builds too (on two different Mac Pros), ranging from Kernel Panics to later, just crashes. I didn't have any significant success until 1868 (with RAM limited), or 1900 with no RAM limitations. I wouldn't say I had a perfect experience until 1920. 1900 was a breakthrough build for me.
I know some are still having problems, and there is still some time to troubleshoot and work on them. It seems however that since 1918, the problems have minimized a great deal just looking at this forum (for Mac Pro and iMac Core 2 Duo users).
