Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7 2203 Long Term Service Release (LTSR)
The product lifecycle strategy for Current Releases (CR) and Long Term Service Releases (LTSR) is described in Lifecycle Milestones.
About this release
Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops provides a virtualization solution for application and desktop delivery to any device, over any network, while enhancing data security, reducing costs, and empowering productivity.
This Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops release includes new versions of the Windows Virtual Delivery Agents (VDAs) and new versions of several core components. You can:
Install or upgrade a site: Use the ISO for this release to install or upgrade core components and VDAs. Installing or upgrading to the latest version allows you to use the latest features.
Install or upgrade VDAs in an existing site: If you already have a deployment, and aren’t ready to upgrade your core components, you can still use several of the latest HDX features by installing (or upgrading to) a new VDA. Upgrading only the VDAs can be helpful when you want to test enhancements in a non-production environment.
After upgrading your VDAs to this version (from version 7.9 or later), you do not need to update the machine catalog’s functional level. The 7.9 (or later) value remains the default functional level, and is valid for this release. For more information, see VDA versions and functional levels.
For installation and upgrade instructions:
- If you are building a new site, follow the sequence in Install and configure.
- If you are upgrading a site, see Upgrade a deployment.
The Long Term Service Release (LTSR) program for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops provides stability and long-term support for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops releases.
LTSRs are also available for Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 1912 and XenApp and XenDesktop Version 7.15.
