Parallels Workstation 2.1 Beta5

Thorn lets us know, in the comments to the fast OS switching post, that the folks at Parallels have released Beta 5 of their Parallels Workstation 2.1 for Intel Macs. This is the software that lets you run 'virtual' machines on your Intel Macs (including, but not limited to, Windows XP).

So what's new in Beta 5?  Lots:

  • USB support
  • Dynamic screen resolutions
  • Transition cube when going into full screen mode
  • lots of bug fixes
When I get an Intel Mac (probably when the second rev of the iMac is released) Parallels is going on my 'must have' list.
