What’s new

Citrix aims to deliver new features and updates to Citrix Cloud Japan customers when they’re available. New releases provide more value, so there’s no reason to delay updates.

This process is transparent to you. Initial updates are applied to Citrix internal sites only and are then applied to customer environments gradually. Delivering updates incrementally maximizes product quality and availability.
