  • Parallels Desktop 9 to Ship in Early September with OS X Mavericks Optimization

    The next iteration of popular virtualization software, Parallels Desktop, is scheduled to ship the first week of September, packed with several new features including optimization for Apple’s upcoming OS X 10.9 Mavericks. Parallels Desktop 9, which is currently available to select testers in beta form, is also said to feature copy and paste support for Mac OS X virtual machines. The new software also has an improved “Coherence View,” which makes Windows applications appear as if they are running natively on the Mac.

    The new version of Parallels is also said to include improvements to creating and customizing key commands, as well as an improved interface that makes it easier to install Windows on a Mac without a DVD SuperDrive. Apple has been working to eliminate integrated legacy disc drives from its Mac lineup.

    Parallels Desktop 9 as mentioned before is said to become available in the first week of September, more specifically with a set release date of Thursday, September 5 (a date which has been leaked through some online resellers). Parallels has said that customers who buy the latest version, Parallels Desktop 8, from an authorized reseller between now and October 31 will receive a free upgrade to Parallels Desktop 9 with a dated proof of purchase.

    Will any of you be looking into Parallels Desktop 9?

      I will be looking into it and seeing if it is worth the inevitable $50 upgrade price that they will want. It may or may not be worth it, but this does tell us that OS X 10.9 should be released prior to September 5th, as Parallels has stated that starting with Parallels 8 they were moving to releasing about a week after each new Mac OS release.
