Parallels Inc. has released a new version of its desktop virtualization software to include support for the OS X 10.9 Mavericks Developer Preview from Apple.
In case you don’t want to repartition your hard drive or dust off a new Mac to install Mavericks, Parallels now offers a simple and easy way to run the developer preview side by side with your current OS X installation.
Simply download Parallels Desktop 8.0.18494.886912 and use it to create a virtual machine in which you can install OS X 10.9 Mavericks Developer Preview.
The added support is “experimental,” meaning that, in addition to the glitches you may encounter in OS X 10.9, some bugs may also poke their head out in the Parallels VM. In other words, with two beta-grade solutions you shouldn’t even think about running work tasks on that machine.
The new Parallels Desktop also works on Mid-2013 MacBooks Air models now.
