From The Register

Parallels has admitted shipping two versions of its Parallels Desktop v4.0 (PD4) software with a 22-day difference between them, leading to accusations it has shipped pre-release software into the channel. This could help to explain the furore on the Parallels’ forum concerning bugs in PD4.

Jenny Ellis, of Parallels, said: “Whilst the version that launched in boxes and the version that’s available online were different, it is not the case that one was a pre-release version, or was in any way less ready for customers. Both completed the acceptance testing process and both are fully supported by Parallels.”

Ellis said: “The product was fully tested both internally and externally in an extensive beta testing programme involving thousands of beta testers. The box and online versions differ only in that we are constantly developing the product and will continue to do so as reflected in the online version that will continuously evolve in its product lifecycle.”
