    Hi

    I downloaded the 4128 release of V3 this morning.

    First the good news.

    This version did not crash when installing the VM additions.

    The bad news.

    It DID crash on restarting after installing the VM additions, crashed within a minute or so.

    The good news again.

    On restarting no damage appears to have happened and so far it has now been running for 10-15 minutes fine.

    The VERY GOOD NEW.

    PU usage seems to be WAY DOWN compared to 4124 and I mean really significantly way down.

    With Menu meters (an excellent little menu-bar tool, under 4124 my cores never really settled below 25% each and often hovered at 35%-45% each core.

    This release they are flicking down into single digits at times and as an average seem to be well below 20%.

    Well done Parallels for fixing so quickly.

    Robin

    Just start Parallels and use "check for updates..." under menu "help".

    I'm happy to report that download to my OSX desktop occurred automatically.

    Installation went very smoothly. Update of tools started automatically and also completed without a hitch.

    Not much to report on changes:
    Boot Camp 1.3 support
    UK activation keys support
    Maybe some minor glitches solved accidentally but nothing groundbreaking ;)
    It's more like a hotfix before the serious update :)
