I installed the files in macros/latex/contrib/parallel Please note that this is a new location; the old one in macros/latex/contrib/supported/parallel is no longer correct.

parallel – Typeset parallel texts
Provides a parallel environment which allows two potentially different texts to be typeset in two columns, while maintaining alignment. The two columns may be on the same page, or on facing pages.
This arrangement of text is commonly used when typesetting translations, but it can have value when comparing any two texts.
