Don't expect to hear anything about a new version until it is definately announced. Parallels appears to have a specific policy of "no wine before its time" (quoting the old commercial. Summarizing a few old posts, though...

Perhaps the most honest answer came later that day from Ben@Parallels:
This probably best sums up the situation. We have a small company which must divide its efforts between its current Mac desktop product (gotta beat Fusion!), an announced Server product, and an as-yet-to-be-announced Win/Lin workstation/desktop product. PWS 2.2 probably doesn't rate major efforts as the goal is to get everyone on 3.X, anyway and they can't get the Win/Lin users onto 3.X until after Server ships. (Has anyone seen a scheduled date for Parallels Server?) Asking for more details is a waste of time.
In some small defense of Parallels, they have release the official patch to allow the existing (11 month old) build of PWS to install under Linux 2.6.22, but have not yet released the promised 2.2 mega update.
FYI, all the quotes above come from three threads: Losing senior Workstation users. Where to now?, Neglected Step-Child, and Will Any NEW version of Linux Install as Guest?
