I'm proud to say that with the support of our almost 50,000 beta testers we were able to resolve a number of bugs and issues very quickly, and as a result, are making beta3 of Parallels Workstation 2.1 for Mac OS X available for download! Get your copy at at the Parallels for Mac OS X Download Center. Don't forget that if you pre-order your copy now, you can save $10 off the $49.99 retail price! Beta3 offers the several fixes and improvements that bring us much closer to a complete product: No need to reinstall Parallels Workstation if its moved from the default file location. Mac OS X no longer restarts when Parallels Workstation is left running and host wakes up from Sleep mode Kernel no longer panics when working with several VMs Improved speed and performance Idling guest OS now consumes only 1-2% of CPU power Bridged networking issues fixed Sound support introduced Improved wi-fi support (especially for MacBook pros) Improved mouse synchronization tool Keyboard mapping and repeating bugs fixed CD/DVD problems fixed Many other minor bug fixes A few known issues that are being resolved now: Do NOT suspend your VM when sound is playing inside guest, as it may reset Mac OS X. VMs are created with the Sound device pointing to the Null Device. Its important to point it to Default Audio manually to have sound enabled in a VM. Sound may tremble at the beginning of playing USB is not working yet, but will be very soon Video output is still a bit slow Image Tool is not available yet, but will be very soon.
