A goal of Citrix is to deliver new features and updates to Citrix Workspace customers when they are available. New releases provide more value, so there’s no reason to delay updates.
This process is transparent to you. Initial updates are applied to Citrix internal sites only and are then applied to customer environments gradually. Delivering updates incrementally in waves helps ensure product quality and maximize availability.
For details about the Service Level Agreement for cloud scale and service availability, see the Citrix Cloud Service Level Agreement. To monitor service interruptions and scheduled maintenance, see the Service Health Dashboard.
Service continuity technical preview: Service continuity allows users to connect to their virtual apps and desktops even during outages in Citrix Cloud components or in public and private clouds. For more information, see Service continuity (Technical Preview).
FedRAMP Ready: Citrix Workspace is FedRAMP Ready when deployed in Citrix Cloud Government. FedRAMP is a program that promotes security standards for cloud services used by US government organizations. US government organizations that require FedRAMP Ready cloud services can now use Citrix Workspace and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops services to deliver virtual apps and desktops. For more information, see Citrix Cloud Government.
Controlled feature rollout for Actions, Virtual Assistance, and Activity Feed: With the Customize > Features tab in Workspace Configuration, you can ensure your subscribers have the best experience with the newest Workspace features by rolling them out in a controlled manner. If you use AD, AAD, or Okta identity providers for workspace authentication, you can roll out Actions, Virtual Assistance, and Activity Feed to only the users and groups that you select or to all subscribers who have access to microapps. For more information, see Actions, Virtual Assistance, and Activity Feed.
Get Started with Citrix Workspace guide: Citrix Workspace now includes a step-by-step walkthrough to help you deliver workspaces quickly to your end-users. The walkthrough guides you through the Citrix Cloud console so you can configure an identity provider, add administrators, and enable workspace authentication and services. For an overview of the tasks you’ll perform and quick access to the instructions you’ll need, see Get Started with Citrix Workspace.
Microapps for Workspace: Microapps are now available to help you deliver relevant, actionable notifications from your applications directly into users’ workspaces. With microapps, users can interact with key business systems without ever leaving their workspace, saving time and helping them focus on their day-to-day work. For more information, see Microapps.
Network Location Service: You can now ensure that users who launch apps and desktops in Workspace from within the corporate network are routed directly to their VDAs. This bypasses the gateway and results in faster Virtual Apps and Desktops sessions. For more information about this service and setup instructions, see Optimize connectivity to workspaces with the Network Location Service.
Improvements for Recent and Favorite apps: Recents and Favorites are loaded first in Workspace, so users can launch their commonly-used apps and desktops right away.
