A new beta of AirParrot, an app that streams your Mac’s display to your Apple TV 2 or Apple TV 3 over AirPlay, is now available. AirParrot 1.3 beta5 comes with 1080p support for the third-generation Apple TV,  individual app mirroring, “greatly” improved mirror speed and some stability fixes. The new version uses an almost completely rewritten method for mirroring and encoding frames. This results in lower CPU usage and faster frame rates.

AirParrot also features audio mirroring and external monitor support. It requires Mac OS X 10.6 or 10.7 and works with Apple TV 3 and Apple TV 2 running firmware 4.4 or 5.0; no hacking/jailbreaking needed.

AirParrot is available from here and costs $9.99 for a single license or $29.99 for 5 licenses. 20 minutes trial version is also available.
