With this feature, you can now enable AWS AssumeRole based hypervisor access. AssumeRole uses a set of temporary security credentials to access AWS resources.
Citrix Device Posture Client will now be built into Citrix Workspace Application (CWA)
Citrix Secure Access client now supports single sign-on for the Workspace URL when already logged in via Citrix Workspace app. This SSO functionality enhances the user experience by avoiding multiple authentications.
Previously, you could schedule image updates by waiting for the MCS machine's next reboot, or by triggering an immediate reboot to all VMs in the catalog. With this feature, you can now create a reboot schedule for a desired catalog or VM(s) to occur once on a desired date and time in an effort to facilitate scheduled MCS image updates.
With this feature, when creating a machine catalog, VMs are not provisioned at catalog creation time, but rather the first time VMs are powered on. For non-persistent catalogs, the OS disk is deleted when the VM power state is set to Off, and recreated when the VM is powered up. The AWS on-demand provisioning feature reduces your storage costs and provides faster catalog creation.
A new congestion control algorithm has been introduced to optimize EDT, allowing the protocol to achieve higher throughput and reduce latency for an enhanced user experience. Please refer to this blog post for more details.
Using this feature, you can use Azure Active Directory joined image to create machine catalog.
In Azure environments, Citrix now supports Azure AD dynamic security group for a machine catalog.
Previously, when creating an Azure Active Directory (AAD) joined machine catalog, you could not use a Microsoft Intune enrolled master image. Now, with this feature, you can use a Microsoft Intune enrolled master image. This functionality requires VDA version 2212 or later.
Previously, MCS only offered locally-redundant storage (LRS). With this feature, you now have both locally-redundant storage (LRS) and zone-redundant storage (ZRS) options in Azure. ZRS allows you to spread your redundant storage across multiple locations, ensuring redundancy even in the event of failure in one location.
