Parallels has just announced the release of Parallels Desktop 4.0, the popular consumer virtualisation solution for Mac OS X. According to the announcement, Parallels is now 50% faster than before, along with expanded 3D graphics support, 20% better battery life, 64-bit support, and an adaptive hypervisor that changes depending on whether Mac OS X or the Parallels VM is demanding more resources, further optimising speed.
Parallels Desktop now includes iPhone support, allowing for remote access and management of a Windows VM through your iPhone with a specially-designed app. The new version supports even more Apple products, with Mac OS X Leopard Server and Mac OS X Snow Leopard supported in virtual machines. With Parallels offering becoming a more serious threat to VMware, will we be seeing VMware Fusion fans giving up their current solutions in favour of Parallels?
