Parallels Desktop 2.2.1862.0

August 8th, 2006  |  Published in etc

Parallels Desktop 2.2.1862.0 is just a point release, but it adds the ability to set whether its swap management favors the host OS (OS X) or the guest OS (whatever you have running in there).

On a system like mine, with relatively little memory to go around, and using Parallels as I do (to get at IE6), setting things in favor of OS X makes the whole thing much more usable as a context I can flip in and out of like any other app, instead of a big, ponderous thing I stay in only as long as needed to accomplish a specific task.

It also seems to be able to suspend the VM much more quickly.
