Parallels Desktop 9.0.23140

Send Article to a Friend

Parallels Desktop has been updated to version 9.0.23136 to improve support for the new multiple display functionality in OS X 10.9 Mavericks, enhance support for Finder tags, and provide OS X notifications when new email is received by Microsoft Outlook 2007 or later. The release squashes a bug that prevented external storage devices from reconnecting after either restarting or resuming a virtual machine or unplugging a device or media. It also provides enhanced battery life for MacBooks running Parallels Desktop 9, puts an end to annoying “device connect/device disconnect” sounds when resizing a window, and resolves an issue with dragging and dropping files from Linux to Mac OS X when running in Coherence. A quick update to 9.0.23140 resolves several crashing bugs in Mavericks. ($79.99 new, $49.99 upgrade, $39.99 educational, 356 MB, release notes)
