    I tried running 32-bit apps in a Mojave guest operating system under a Catalina host. Many applications will not run due to the graphics. Parallels had posted the following regarding this:
    "Parallels Desktop does not support 2D or 3D acceleration in OS X/macOS guest operating systems (installed inside the virtual machine) because Apple does not provide an API for creating a video driver with 2D/3D acceleration support."
    Question: Is this problem solved with BigSur as the Host system? I.e., will Mojave guest system run software requiring 3D acceleration?

    No,
    that is a limitation of the graphic driver implemented for the guest, not affected by the host.
