Keyboard layout synchronization
Starting with this release, Citrix Workspace app for Mac provides dynamic synchronization of the keyboard layout from the client to a Linux VDA in a session. This enables you to switch among preferred keyboard layouts on the client device, providing a consistent user experience when, for example, switching the keyboard layout from English to Spanish.
Enhanced client IME experience
Starting with this release, Citrix Workspace app for Mac provides a better user experience with regards to client IME input and Linux VDAs. Using this feature, you can see two improvements in client IME input:
- The candidate window with the list of composing characters always appears beside the insertion point rather than in the previous left-bottom corner location.
- The composed characters shown in the VDA are marked so that you do not confuse them with the determined characters.
This feature is dependent on the keyboard layout synchronization feature.
Selective H264 allows parts of the screen that change rapidly, such as when playing a video, to be received as an H264 stream. To enable selective H264, turn on the Use Video Codec: For Actively Changing regions policy.

Citrix Workspace app for Mac fully supports macOS Mojave, including Dark Mode.
Secure Browser for Citrix Workspace app for Mac now supports cookies and redirects when using Citrix Gateway.
What’s new in 1808
Citrix Workspace app for Mac is now fully 64-bit.
Users who upgrade to Citrix Workspace app will not have an optimized Skype for Business (Lync) experience due to a bitness mismatch. Citrix Workspace app for Mac is 64-bit, while the currently installed version of RTME is 32-bit. The release of a 64-bit version of RTME is planned for late September. As a workaround, consider using the RTME Tech Preview release.
32-bit custom virtual channels no longer work and must be updated to 64-bit.
Citrix Workspace app for Mac now supports federated authentication through Azure Active Directory.
Show or hide the remote language bar
Starting with this release, you can choose to show or hide the remote language bar in an application session using the graphical user interface. The language bar displays the preferred input language in a session. In earlier releases, you could change this setting using only the registry keys on the VDA. Starting with Citrix Workspace app for Mac version 1808, you can change the settings using the Preferences dialog. The language bar appears in a session by default.
This feature is available in sessions running on VDA 7.17 and later.
Support for Citrix Analytics
Citrix Workspace app is instrumented to securely transmit logs to Citrix Analytics. The logs are analyzed and stored on Citrix Analytics when enabled. For more information about Citrix Analytics, see Citrix Analytics documentation.
