Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac provides Mavericks support, much more

Parallels has launched Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac, which lets customers run Windows and Mac applications simultaneously on a Mac without rebooting. New features include cloud storage optimizations for iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive and SkyDrive.

Customers will also enjoy increased productivity with Mac OS X features like Launchpad in Windows applications and using the upcoming OS X Mavericks. For Windows 8 users, Parallels Desktop 9 incorporates the familiar Start menu and Windows Start button. Starting Aug. 29, current Parallels Desktop users can upgrade to Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac at www.parallels.com/desktop. For new customers, Parallels Desktop 9 will be available for purchase at retail and online stores and via the Parallels website starting on Sept. 5.
 
"Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac customers will enjoy peace of mind knowing that Parallels keeps pace with and supports leading new technologies, such as the upcoming OS X Mavericks, Windows 8.1 and increasingly popular cloud services," says Parallels CEO Birger Steen. "We thank our customers for appreciating our innovations and making Parallels Desktop for Mac the No. 1-selling software for running Windows on a Mac for seven years and counting."
 
He says that everyone from business owners, to web developers, IT professionals, Mac enthusiasts, parents and students will benefit from conveniences of Parallels Desktop 9, such as improved performance, MacBook Power Nap functionality in Windows and Windows applications, connecting Thunderbolt and Firewire storage devices to a Windows virtual machine, improved security features, and increased flexibility for users with multiple monitors. Parallels Desktop 9 also enhances its support of Mac gestures inside Windows applications and offers Linux users enhanced integration with the Mac OS.
 
Parallels Desktop 9 also delivers performance for some of the most common scenarios and operations such as 40% improvement in disk performance; virtual machine startup and shutdown are now up to 25% faster; and customers can suspend their virtual machines in up to 20% less time than before. 3D  graphics and web-browsing were also made noticeably speedier with up to 15% improvements for both.
 
Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac customers also get an exclusive six-month subscription to the just-released Parallels Access for iPad, a product for people on-the-go that "applifies"Windows and Mac applications on a PC or Mac, letting customers remotely access and experience them as if they were made for the iPad.

Now people can enjoy native iPad gestures even in applications not optimized for iPad. With Parallels Access, just tap right to what you need to get done, in any Windows or Mac application. Mac users with Parallels Desktop 9 can also enjoy the "applified" experience for their Windows applications, using Parallels Access from an iPad. Details about Parallels Access and a free trial are available here: www.parallels.com/access.
 
Top Parallels Desktop 9 for Mac features include:

°  Support for cloud services: Sync iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive etc., with your Mac and your Windows virtual machine without unnecessary duplication of files locally;

° Enhanced Windows 8 and 8.1 support: Parallels Desktop brings back the real Start menu and lets customers use Metro apps in a window instead of full screen

° Enhanced new Virtual Machine Wizard: It is easier than ever to set up a new virtual machine, especially on computers that don’t have DVD drives;

° Thunderbolt and Firewire storage device support: For convenience of everyday use, customers can connect those devices directly to a Windows virtual machine;

° PDF printer for Windows: Lets people print from any Windows application to a PDF on the Mac desktop, even if the application doesn’t have that functionality;

° Sticky multi-monitor setup: When using Windows in Full Screen mode and connecting to an external monitor, Parallels Desktop will remember settings and put the Windows virtual machine back in full screen mode on the remote monitor;

° Custom keyboard: Editable keyboard shortcuts help customize the Windows experience;

° Linux guest integration: Parallels Desktop customers who use Linux now have additional and enhanced integration with the Mac OS.
