    John,
    any idea on ETA for this stuff? Knowing it is coming in v4 does us no good if we don't know if v4 is 3 months out, or 3 years. I would also ask about openGL 2.1 support, DirectX 10 support, etc. I am using Parallels for a professional 3D architectural application (Autodesk Revit), and every ounce of power available on the machine is what I am looking to harness.

    Thanks,
    Gordon

    Beta 4 will be available in a month or so
    Multicore will be supported from the begining,
    Other features will be available either from the begining or in subsequent builds
    For now I am not able to provide more information

    Re: Windows And Multiple Processor Support

    I'm not current with regards to the internal structures of Windows 2000 on up , but I remember that in the NT4 days you had to specify during the NT install if you wanted multi-processor support. You'd have to reinstall NT4 if you wanted to go from single processor to multi-processor support. Is that still true for Windows 2000, XP, and Vista?

    I ask because I have a specialized app that I use that has only been certified to run on Windows 2000 Server, and I'm wondering if I'll receive much improvement from just updating Parallels, or if I would have to reinstall Windows 2000 Server (which may or may not be an option - this program has a HORRID install, part automated, part manual, lots of knuckle-busting).

    Thanks!
    Andy

    John,
    It seems that your competitors at VMWare are pulling ahead at the moment, especially in regard to the multi-core issue. I am sorry to say this, but if I have to pay an upgrade fee to get that feature (by purchasing version 4) I will have to seriously consider moving to the VMWare Fusion platform. You guys are lagging behind right now substantially, please keep us updated on your progress.
