XenDesktop / XenApp 7.6 Announced


Today Citrix announced that they are working hard to close the gap in missing features between 6.5 and 7.x, finally delivering anonymous login and session linger and bringing back the much desired, but swiftly-absent, pre-launch.  You can read the whole press release, but the jist of it is below:

  • Anonymous logins
  • Pre-launch
  • Session Linger
  • Generic USB 3.0 device redirection
  • Connection leasing

Admins need not fear that they have to “keep up” with the rapid release cycle:  Keep in mind the support model has been changed for the 7.x releases.  That means you can regard these releases for what they are – minor releases – and keep current so that you can upgrade to the next version as needed (much in the same way hotfix rollups would have been applied in the past).
