Composite USB device redirection using DDC policies

Previously, the composite USB device redirection was managed on the client side. There was no option to manage it on VDA.

Starting with the 2405 release, you can manage the composite USB device redirection on VDA using the DDC policies. The rules set on the VDA take preferences over the rules set on the client. Client can interpret the value set on VDA.

With this release, Citrix Workspace app for Linux supports the following policies which helps you to manage the usage of the composite USB device redirection:

  • Client USB device redirection
  • Client USB device redirection rules
  • Client USB device redirection rules (Version 2)
  • Allow existing USB devices to be automatically connected
  • Allow newly arrived USB devices to be automatically connected

Note:

To configure the preceding polices, users can refer to the documents see Client USB device redirection document.

Desktop Viewer’s updates according to the polices

  • If the Client USB device redirection policy is set to Prohibited on DDC, the Devices on the toolbar will be set to insensible and the Devices option on the Citrix Workspace app - Preferences screen won’t be visible.
  • Based on the values set for Allow existing USB devices to be automatically connected and Allow newly arrived USB devices to be automatically connected policies, the following checkboxes might be enabled or disabled on the Devices option on the Citrix Workspace app - Preferences screen:

    • When a session starts, connect devices automatically
    • When a new device is connected while a session is running, connect devices automatically

USB policy configuration

Enhanced the user interface for seamless login experience

Starting with the 2405 release, Citrix Workspace app for Linux’s user interface has been enhanced to be more modern and provides seamless login experience for first time users.

Previously, Citrix Workspace app for Linux were using two different GTK windows for store addition and enumeration of the resources. With this release, Citrix Workspace app displays the Welcome page with the option to add the store using the store url, e-mail id, or fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

Enhanced FTU

This feature also includes the following enhancements to the UI:

After completing the installation, the option to login now or skip login for later is displayed. If the user enters invalid store url, invalid or incomplete e-mail id, or invalid IP adress, an intuitive error message is displayed based on the input.

Enhanced FTU

For more information, see Enhanced the user interface for adding store.

Support for multiple passkeys in HDX session

Previously, when there were multiple passkeys associated with a security key or FIDO2 device, you were not having an option to select an appropriate passkey. By default, the first passkey was used for authentication.

Starting with the 2405 version, you can select an appropriate passkey from the Citrix Workspace app UI. This feature is enabled by default. When there are multiple passkeys, the first one is selected as default. However, you can select the appropriate passkey as follows:

Earlier releases

This section provides information on the new features and fixed issues in the previous releases that we support as per the Lifecycle Milestones for Citrix Workspace app.

2402

What’s new

The following features are available in this release:

Synchronize multiple keyboards at session start

Previously, only the active keyboard on the client was synchronized with VDA after the session started in full-screen mode. In this scenario, if you configured Sync only once - when session launches on your Citrix Workspace app, and you had to change to a different keyboard, you have to manually install the keyboard on your remote desktop. This feature is used mostly when the client side keyboard input mode is scancode input mode. Users can select a keyboard layout in a remote session as the active keyboard layout which is synchronized from the client keyboard layout list.

Starting with the 2402 version, all available keyboards on the Linux client are synchronized with VDA after the session starts in full-screen mode. You can select the required keyboard from the list of installed keyboards on the VDA, after the session starts in full-screen mode.

For more information, see Synchronize multiple keyboards at session start.

Enhancement for composite USB auto-redirection

Previously, you had to set DesktopApplianceMode to True in the configuration file to auto-redirect USB devices when a session starts.

With this release, you are able to manage device connection settings from a UI on the Citrix Workspace app for Linux, without having to depend on configuration files.

For more information, see Enhancement for composite USB auto-redirection.

Loss tolerant mode for audio

Starting with the 2402 version, Citrix Workspace app supports loss tolerant mode (EDT lossy) for audio redirection. This feature improves the user experience for real-time streaming when users are connecting through networks with high latency and packet loss. By default, this feature is enabled.

For more information, see Loss tolerant mode for audio.

Support for Audio volume synchronization

Starting with the 2402 version, Citrix Workspace app for Linux supports synchronization of audio volume between the VDA and your audio devices. You can now tune the volume using the VDA audio volume slider and have the same volume on your device and the other way around. This feature is enabled by default.

For more information, see Support for Audio volume synchronization.

Enable Packet Loss Concealment to improve audio performance

Starting with the 2402 version, the jitter buffer mechanism is improved. Also, the Packet Loss Concealment (PLC) is added for both Speex and Adaptive audio codec. Speex is enabled when the Audio Quality policy set to medium quality. Adaptive audio codec is selected by default when both VDA and Citrix Workspace app client support Adaptive audio codec. PLC helps to reconstruct the lost data packets.

For more information, see Enable Packet Loss Concealment to improve audio performance.

Version upgrade for Chromium Embedded Framework

The version of the Chromium Embedded Framework (CEF) is upgraded to 120. This upgraded version includes fixes for known security vulnerabilities.

Support for GTK3

Previously, the configmgr, conncenter, and setlog executables within Citrix Workspace app were using GTK2. With this release, these executables are migrated to GTK3.

Availability of Credential Insertion SDK for cloud stores

Previously, using the Credential Insertion SDK, you could authenticate only on on-premises stores. With this release, you can now authenticate users on the Self-Service plug-in using SSO on cloud stores. For more information, see Availability of Credential Insertion SDK for cloud stores

Improved UI for error messages

The error messages UI is improved. Previously, the UIDialog library was used to display error messages. From this release, the gtk library is` used in error messages. This enhancement improves the user experience.

Also, a transaction ID along with a copy to clipboard button is available for the user’s convenience.

Error message

Send feedback on Citrix Workspace app

The Send Feedback option allows you to inform Citrix about any issues that you might run into while using Citrix Workspace app. You can also send suggestions to help us improve your Citrix Workspace app experience.

For more information, see Send feedback on Citrix Workspace app.

Introduction of a new command in Storebrowse

A new command -lt is introduced to list out all types of enabled authentication methods for StoreFront. This command supports using the credential insertion SDK.

For more information, see List authentication methods.

Configure UDP port range for Microsoft Teams optimization

With this release, you can specify the minimum and maximum range of UDP ports for Microsoft Teams optimization. If the UDP Port cannot be allocated for any reason, the WebRTC falls back to TCP. This feature helps you to use the minimum ports that you require.

For more information, see Configure UDP port range for Microsoft Teams optimization.

Technical Preview

  • Enhancement to multiple monitors

For the complete list of Technical Preview features, see the Features in Technical Preview page.

Fixed issues

  • In Microsoft Teams, while you share a screen or app and resize it, the aspect ratios displayed might not be correct on the recipients (other meeting participants) side. This issue also occurs when you share screens or apps that are ordered using the Snap Windows feature option. [HDX-54395]
  • After visiting a browser content redirected site, if you sign out from the user session, an error message might appear. [HDX-55087]
  • You might face issues while sharing an app screen over the Optimized Microsoft Teams call. This issue occurs due to out of memory while sharing the app. [HDX-53442]
  • Microsoft Teams admin might fail to get the current location of the Citrix Workspace app running on the endpoint. This issue occurs when the dynamic e911 feature is supported and the chassis ID is added for Microsoft Teams E911 configuration instead of subnet address. [CVADHELP-22752]

2308

What’s new

HTTPS protocol support for proxy server

Previously, you could connect to a proxy server only using the SOCKS protocol. From Citrix Workspace app for Linux 2308 onwards, you can connect to a proxy server using the HTTPS protocol also.

For more information on how to open a desktop using an HTTPS protocol, see HTTPS protocol support for proxy server.

Support for MJPEG webcams

With this release, MJPEG webcams are supported in the H264 stream. The Webcam compresses MJEPG internally which provides better image quality and a higher frame rate. This feature is enabled by default. However, if Webcam doesn’t support MJPEG, this feature is disabled.

Supports system certificate paths for SSL connection

Previously, Citrix Workspace app supported only the opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore path as system certificate path. This path was a hardcode path to store Citrix predefined certificates. However, sometimes, certificate authority (CA) certificates are placed in the system certificates path in different linux distributions. To add these system certificate paths, customers had to make a soft link and replace /opt/Citrix/ICAClient/keystore.

With this release, Citrix Workspace app supports multiple system certificate paths. The following are the default system certificate paths supported for SSL connection:

"/var/lib/ca-certificates",
"/etc/ssl/certs",
"/system/etc/security/cacerts",
"/usr/local/share/cert",
"/etc/pki/tls/certs",
"/etc/openssl/certs",
"/var/ssl/certs",
ICAROOT() + "/keystore/cacerts"
<!--NeedCopy-->

In addition to the default system certified path, you can also add your own certified path by adding the Certpath field in the AuthManConfig.xml file.

For more information, see Supports system certificate paths for SSL connection.

Enhanced virtual channel SDK

The virtual channel SDK for Citrix Workspace app for Linux is enhanced with the addition of new APIs for I/O functions and window positioning. For more information, see the following:

Support for keyboard shortcut to switch between Full-screen and Window mode

Previously, you had to use either the Window or Full-screen button on the Desktop Viewer to toggle between Full-screen and Window mode.

Starting with this release, you can use a keyboard shortcut Ctrl+F2 to switch between Full-screen and Window mode. For example, when the desktop session is in Full-screen mode, if you press “Ctrl+F2”, the desktop session exits from the Full-screen mode.

This feature is disabled by default.

For more information, see Support for keyboard shortcut to switch between Full-screen and Window mode.

Support for secondary ringer

You can use the Secondary ringer feature to select a secondary device on which you want to get the incoming call notification when Microsoft Teams is optimized. For example, consider that you have set a speaker as the Secondary ringer and your endpoint is connected to the headphone. In this case, Microsoft Teams sends the incoming call signal to the speaker even though your headphones are the primary peripheral for the audio call itself. You can’t set a secondary ringer in the following cases:

  • When you aren’t connected to more than one audio device
  • When the peripheral isn’t available (for example, a Bluetooth headset)

Added support for playing short tones in optimized Microsoft Teams

Earlier, with the secondary ringtone feature enabled, short tones such as beeps or notifications were playing repeatedly. For example, the tone that was played when a guest joins the Microsoft Teams meeting was repeated. The only workaround was to quit and restart Microsoft Teams. This issue resulted in a poor end-user experience.

With this release, Citrix Workspace app supports playing the short tones as desired. This support also enables the secondary ringtone feature.

Prerequisites:

Update to the latest version of Microsoft Teams.

2207

What’s new

Enhancement to improve audio quality

Previously, the maximum output buffering value to play the audio smoothly was 200 ms in Citrix Workspace app. Because of this value set, 200 ms latency was added in the playback scenario. This maximum output buffering value had an impact on interactive audio applications as well.

With this enhancement, the maximum output buffering value is decreased to 50 ms in Citrix Workspace app. As a result, the user experience on the interactive audio application is improved. Also, the Round trip time (RTT) is decreased by 150 ms.

Starting with this release, you can select the appropriate playback threshold and pulse audio prebuffer to improve the audio quality. For this enhancement, the following parameters are added in the [ClientAudio] section of the module.ini file:

  • PlaybackDelayThreshV4 – To specify the initial level of output buffering in milliseconds. Citrix Workspace app tries to maintain this level of buffering throughout a session’s duration. The default value of the PlaybackDelayThreshV4 is 50 ms. This parameter is valid only when AudioRedirectionV4 is set to True.
  • AudioTempLatencyBoostV4 – When the audio throughput undergoes a sudden spike or isn’t enough for an unstable network, this value increases the output buffering value. This increase in the output buffering value provides smooth audio. However, the audio might be slightly delayed. The default value of AudioTempLatencyBoostV4 is set to 100 ms. This parameter is only valid when AudioRedirectionV4 is set to True and AudioLatencyControlEnabled is set to True. By default, the value of AudioLatencyControlEnabled is set to True.

For more information on how to enable this enhancement, see the Enhancement to improve audio quality section in the Audio documentation.

Composite USB device redirection

Starting with this release, Citrix Workspace app allows splitting of composite USB devices. A composite USB device can perform more than one function. These functions are accomplished by exposing each of those functions using different interfaces. Examples of composite USB devices include HID devices that consist of audio and video input and output.

Currently composite USB device redirection is available in desktop session only. The split devices appear in the Desktop Viewer.

Earlier when a device was unplugged and plugged in during a session, the device was redirected automatically. As a result, the device was auto connected to the VDA. With this release, you are required to enable auto-redirection manually through configuration file settings. Auto-redirection of composite USB devices is disabled by default.

For more information on configuring composite USB device redirection, see the Composite USB device redirection section in the USB documentation.

Improved audio echo cancellation support [Technical Preview]

Starting with this release, Citrix Workspace app supports echo cancellation. This feature is designed for real-time user cases, and it improves the user experience. The echo cancellation feature supports low quality, medium quality, and adaptive audio. Citrix recommends using adaptive audio for better performance.

By default, the echo cancellation feature is disabled. During real-time user cases, it’s recommended to turn on the echo cancellation if the speaker is used instead of the headset.

Limitation:

By design, the echo cancellation feature is disabled for high quality audio.

For more information, see the Improved audio echo cancellation support section in the Audio documentation.

Note:

Technical previews are available for customers to test in their non-production or limited production environments, and to give customers an opportunity to share feedback. Citrix does not accept support cases for feature previews but welcomes feedback for improving them. Citrix might or might not act on feedback based on its severity, criticality, and importance.

The authentication tokens are encrypted and stored so that you don’t need to reenter credentials when your system or session restarts.

You can also toggle the authentication enhancement for Storebrowse feature off or on using the StorebrowseIPC key in the AuthmanConfig.xml file. By default, the toggle functionality is disabled.

The authentication enhancement supports storebrowse for the following operations:

  • Storebrowse -E: Lists the available resources.
  • Storebrowse -L: Launches a connection to a published resource.
  • Storebrowse -S: Lists the subscribed resources.
  • Storebrowse -T: Terminates all sessions of the specified store.
  • Storebrowse -Wr: Reconnects the disconnected yet active sessions of the specified store. The [r] option reconnects all the disconnected sessions.
  • storebrowse -WR: Reconnects the disconnected yet active sessions of the specified store. The [R] option reconnects all the active and disconnected sessions.
  • Storebrowse -s: Subscribes the specified resource from a given store.
  • Storebrowse -u: Unsubscribes the specified resource from a given store.
  • Storebrowse -q: Launches an application using the direct URL. This command works only for StoreFront stores.

Note:

  • You can continue to use the remaining storebrowse commands as used earlier (using AuthMangerDaemon).
  • The authentication enhancement is applicable for cloud deployments only.
  • With this enhancement, the persistent login feature is supported.

For more information, see the Authentication enhancement.

Persistent login [Technical Preview]

The Persistent login feature enables you to stay logged in for up to the duration (2–365 days) configured by your admin. When this feature is enabled, you need not provide login credentials for the Citrix Workspace app during the configuration period.

With this functionality, the SSO to Citrix DaaS sessions is extended up to a period of 365 days. This extension is based on the lifetime of Long-Lived Tokens. Your credentials are cached by default for 4 days or Lifetime whichever is lower. And, then extended when you become active within these 4 days by connecting to the Citrix Workspace app.

Note:

Technical previews are available for customers to test in their non-production or limited production environments, and to give customers an opportunity to share feedback. Citrix does not accept support cases for feature previews but welcomes feedback for improving them. Citrix might or might not act on feedback based on its severity, criticality, and importance. It is advised that Beta builds aren’t deployed in production environments.

For more information, see Persistent login.

Email-based auto-discovery of store

You can now provide your email address in Citrix Workspace app to automatically discover the store associated with the email address. If there are multiple stores associated with a domain, by default the first store returned by the Global App Configuration Service is added as the store of choice. Users can always switch to another store if necessary.

For more information, see the Email-based auto-discovery of store section at Adding store URL to Citrix Workspace app documentation.

Fixed issues

  • The DNS server in a customer environment with limited internet access might not resolve the URL, clientstream.launchdarkly.com. As a result, Citrix Workspace app sends many DNS queries (>1000 within three seconds per day) to the URL. [CVADHELP-19559]
  • When the App Protection feature is enabled, the anti-keylogging functionality might not work for the Authentication Manager interface that uses the UIDialogLibWebKit3.so library. This issue is resolved in the ``GNOME and KDE` desktop environment. [RFLNX-8027]
  • Attempting to print from a VDA session running on Raspberry Pi ARMHF client version 3 or 4 might make the session unresponsive. [CVADHELP-18506]
  • When you launch the self-service user interface with the default settings, the following error message might appear:

    “Response for Secondary Token request is not 200/400/404 42”

    This issue occurs on Fedora 35. [RFLNX-8603]

2203

What’s new

Support for EDT IPv6

Starting with this release, Citrix Workspace app supports EDT IPv6.

Support for TLS protocol version 1.3

Starting with this release, Citrix Workspace app supports the Transport Layer Security protocol (TLS) version 1.3. For more information, see TLS.

Custom web stores

Starting with 2203, you can access your organization’s custom web store from the Citrix Workspace app.

Note:

The Pinning multi-monitor screen layout feature isn’t supported in the custom web store.

For more information, see Custom web stores.

Authentication enhancement experimental feature

Starting with this release, the authentication enhancement supports storebrowse for the following operations:

  • Storebrowse -E to list the available resources.
  • Storebrowse -L to launch a connection to a published resource.
  • Storebrowse -S to list the subscribed resources.

Note:

You can continue to use the remaining storebrowse commands in the AuthMangerDaemon and will be supported with authentication enhancement in the future release.

For more information, see Authentication enhancement for Storebrowse.

Keyboard layout synchronization enhancement

Keyboard layout synchronization enables you to switch among preferred keyboard layouts on the client device. This feature is disabled by default. When enabled, the client keyboard layout automatically synchronizes to the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops and Citrix DaaS (formerly Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops service) session.

Starting with version 2203, Citrix Workspace app supports the following three different keyboard layout synchronization modes:

  • Sync only once - when session launches – Based on the KeyboardLayout value in the wfclient.ini file, the client keyboard layout is synchronized to the server when the session launches. If the KeyboardLayout value is set to 0, the system keyboard is synchronized to VDA. If the KeyboardLayout value is set to a specific language, the language-specific keyboard is synchronized to VDA. Any changes you make to the client keyboard layout during the session do not take effect immediately. To apply the changes, sign out and sign in to the app. The Sync only once - when session launches mode is the default keyboard layout selected for Citrix Workspace app.
  • Allow dynamic sync - This option synchronizes the client keyboard layout to the server when you change the client keyboard layout.
  • Don’t sync - Indicates that the client uses the keyboard layout present on the server.

For more information, see Keyboard layout synchronization.

Multi-window chat and meetings for Microsoft Teams

You can use multiple windows for chat and meetings in Microsoft Teams, when optimized by HDX in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 2112 or higher. You can pop out the conversations or meetings in various ways. For details about the pop-out window feature, see the New Meeting and Calling Experience in Microsoft Teams documentation.

If you’re running an older version of Citrix Workspace app or Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA), remember that Microsoft will deprecate the single-window code in the future. However, you can upgrade to a version of the VDA or Citrix Workspace app that supports multiple windows (2203 and greater). To upgrade to a higher version, you will have a minimum of nine months after this feature is generally available.

Note:

This feature is available only after the roll-out of a future update from Microsoft Teams. When the update is rolled-out by Microsoft, you can check CTX253754 for the documentation update and the announcement.

Enhancement to auto-redirection of USB devices

Earlier when a device was unplugged and plugged in during a session, the device was auto-redirected. As a result, the device was auto-connected to the VDA. With this release, you are required to enable auto-redirection manually through configuration file settings. Auto-redirection of USB devices is disabled by default. For more information, see the USB section.

Fixed issues

  • When you add a store and authenticate it to the Citrix Workspace app, the authentication window is loaded for the second time, even after successful authentication. This issue occurs when you first sign into the Citrix Workspace app after setting the AuthManLiteEnabled to True. [RFLNX-8694]
