So last night, Citrix released XenDesktop 7.11 which now already supports Windows Server 2016! Which is now availble here –> https://www.citrix.com/downloads/xenapp-and-xendesktop/product-software/xenapp-and-xendesktop-711.html

But that not all! it has alot of new capabilities as well!

XenDesktop 7.11:

  • Support for Hyper-V DDA
  • Support for Azure Resource Manager deployments (Which I have blogged about here –> http://msandbu.org/delivering-xendesktop-from-microsoft-azure-using-azure-resource-manager/
  • When using Machine Creation Services to create a Machine Catalog containing desktop OS VMs, you can now choose whether MCS provisions thin (fast copy) clones or thick (full copy) clones.
  • Deployment using you can now choose whether MCS provisions thin (fast copy) clones or thick (full copy) clones.
  • Publishing of Windows Universal Applications
  • Enhancement to caching behavior of video content in Thinwire
  • TWAIN 2 support
  •  Relative mouse support
  • Updated Client USB device optimization rules policy setting
  • Generic USB redirection for mass storage devices on XenApp (Now enabled by default!)
  • Access to a high-performance video encoder for NVIDIA GPUs using NVENC
  • Zone preference (We can now specify if a desktop or application group should be mapped to a users home zone

Storefront 3.7:

It also comes with StoreFront 3.7 which now support Windows Server 2016 as well!

Did I mention that Windows Server 2016 comes with HTTP/2 by default? Which will increase the performance of HTML 5 based Web Receiver rather dramatically.
