This maybe of interest to developers mainly. Parallels, is it possible to implememt an API where windows application would be able to communicate with the OS X side of things and vice versa? This is probably already implemented internally at Parallels to make time synchronization, clipboard sync etc.. work. I know a full blown API would raise security issues, but I guess it could be done via plug-ins. Developers would write such plugins and the apps that handle them on Windows and OS X. Users would have to manually activate those plugins to reduce security risks. This for example would allow someone to see battery status in Windows in full screen mode as mentioned in a previous post; or what I am interested in, a contextual menu plugin on OSX that will allow one to launch a file directly in parallels without the clicking and switching. The possible applications are endless and it is unreasonable to ask parallels to implemet every idea. Comments anyone?
