Autoupdate support for Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 using HDX SDK for HTML5

Citrix HDX SDK for HTML5 enhances the setPath API to consume the latest build of Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 from the CDN. This enhancement allows Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 to run on the latest version seamlessly. For existing HDX SDK for HTML5 users, change citrix.receiver.setPath in the customer code to use the latest from the CDN. For new users, the setPath API provides the option by default.

CDN is provided as the default. If there are any issues with the CDN, the hosted location provides the fallback path. For more information, see HDX SDK for HTML5.

VC SDK supports writing new virtual channels and Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 can support up to 20 custom-virtual channels.

Feature limitations

  • If the configuration of the virtual channels is incorrect, you can observe a delay of 30 seconds.
  • When you create a custom VC, start the ‘streamName’ with anything other than ‘CTX’.
