We've launched the Release Candidate (RC) for Parallels Desktop! This release is a direct result of the awesome support from the Mac community...so thanks again to all of our 100,000+ beta testers. Upgrade to Parallels Desktop for Mac RC now! Before I discuss the changes you'll see in the RC, I wanted to address the product name change. As you probably know, "Workstation" is a very Windows-centric term, and we recieved a lot of comments from our users stating that since we've got a great Mac product, we should make it look and sound like a Mac product. We listened, and the result is "Parallels Desktop for Mac". We're really pleased with the new name, and we hope that you are, too. What's new in Parallels Desktop for Mac RC? * New look and feel * Improved performance and stability * Better and broader USB support * Improved Shared Folder functionality * Improved networking * Better sound support * Better fullscreen operation * Resolved Suspend/Resume issues * Uninstaller introduced * National keyboards mapping issues have been fixed * Red Power Off button now always acts like Power Off * Blue Pause button now always acts like Suspend * The Pause button was moved to the VM menu Known issues: * Some USB devices are still unstable * FreeBSD 5.4 installation sometimes hangs NOTE: If you are upgrading from beta4 or earlier, you will need to reboot after installing RC. NOTE: Be sure to reinstall Parallels Tools when you're done installing RC! To install tools, click the VM menu and select "Install Parallels Tools". We need your feedback & continued support!
