The latest update to Parallels Desktop is of particular interest to those running Windows 8 in a virtual machine.

Parallels Desktop, the virtualisation software for Mac, has been updated to version 8.0.18345.

While there are a range of stability and performance fixes under the hood, the biggest single change is primarily aimed at Windows 8 users.

The new build provides an option to disable edge swipe gestures in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 for those users who accidentally swipe from the edge of the trackpad.

The other change called out by Parallels is improved connectivity via a proxy server.

The update can be obtained via the Check for Updates command within Parallels Desktop, or downloaded via this page.

Parallels Desktop costs $89.95. A 14-day free trial is available.
