What’s new in 20.9.0

USB redirection general availability

The USB redirection feature is now fully functional and ready for general availability. By default, the USB redirection feature is disabled.

The generic USB redirection feature allows the redirection of arbitrary USB devices from client machines to Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. This feature allows you to interact with a wide selection of generic USB devices in a session as if they were physically plugged into it.

As a prerequisite to manage this feature using the Citrix Global App Config Service, set the USB redirection feature to Enabled on the Delivery Controller. For more information on how to configure USB redirection on the Delivery Controller, see the Generic USB devices section in the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops documentation.

The Citrix Global App Configuration Service gives Citrix administrators the ability to deliver Citrix Workspace service URLs and Citrix Workspace app settings through a centrally managed service.

The USB redirection feature is integrated with and configurable through the Citrix Global App Config Service. You can manage the feature using the Citrix Global App Config Service for non-domain joined networks.

For information on configuring the feature using this method, see Global App Configuration Service in the developer’s documentation.

Note:

This feature is ready for general availability starting with Version 20.9.0. In Versions 20.8.0 and earlier, it is available on-demand only.

What’s new in 20.8.1

This release addresses several issues that help to improve overall performance and stability.

What’s new in 20.8.0

Client Drive Mapping (CDM) enhancement

Earlier, a selected choice of device storage was applied on all configured stores.

With this release, Citrix Workspace app allows you to select dedicated device storage for every configured store.

You get a prompt to select the type of device storage along with the store details at session launch. You can do one of the following:

  • Select one of the device storage options and click OK - The choice is applied only to the current session. A prompt appears to select the type of device storage at every launch.
  • Select one of the device storage options, select Do not ask again and click OK - The choice is applied for all session launches for that store. No further prompts appear.
  • Select Cancel - You are prompted to select a type of device storage at every launch and within a session as well. The session does not have access to the device storage.

Note:

This feature applies only on direct ICA launches and Citrix Gateway configured stores. Stores without end-to-end SSL setup are not supported.

What’s new in 20.7.5

The Recent tab now displays the native mobile apps along with published apps and desktops.

What’s new in 20.7.0

User interface enhancement

Starting with this release, you can now remove the store account details from the Edit option. Click Remove account to remove the account details.

What’s new in 20.6.5

Update to cryptography

This feature is an important change to the secure communication protocol. Cipher suites with the prefix TLS_RSA_ doesn’t offer forward secrecy and are considered weak.

In this release, the TLS_RSA_ cipher suites have been removed. This release supports advanced TLS_ECDHE_RSA_ cipher suites. If your environment isn’t configured with the TLS_ECDHE_RSA_ cipher suites, you cannot launch the client because of weak ciphers.

The following advanced cipher suites are supported:

  • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 (0xc030)
  • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384 (0xc028)
  • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA (0xc013)

TLS v1.0 supports the following cipher suites:

  • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA

TLS v1.2 supports the following cipher suites:

  • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
  • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384
  • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA

What’s new in 20.6.0

NOTE:

You do not need to install HDX RTME to use Skype for Business, you only need the Citrix Workspace app. If HDX RTME is already installed on the Chromebook device, you must uninstall it.

To enable HDX RTME from the Citrix Workspace app:

By default, this setting is set to Off.
