Citrix 7.6, 7.7 or 7.8? LTSR to the Rescue!


This is a question, and one I have been getting a lot lately, especially from our partners in Vegas this week at Citrix Summit.

And it’s a tough question. Should we build this new Citrix deployment on the awesome 7.6 FP3 release with Thinwire+ that came out 4 months ago? Or should we go with the new 7.7 release that shipped right before the New Year? Or should we wait for the 7.8 release that Calvin said is coming later in Q1?

Very fair questions, all of them, and it’s always been difficult for me to provide customers with general guidance in this area, but in my opinion, the answer just got a lot less “cloudy” thanks to something called LTSR.

Allow me to explain what LTSR is and why I think it’s a big deal.

LTSR stands for Long Term Service Release. And it’s something we announced this week at Summit, but it probably didn’t get the air time it deserved. A quick bit of history and then I’ll get to the point.
