What’s new in 2201

Version 2201 of the Linux VDA includes the following new features and enhancements:

MATE desktop support on SUSE 15.3 and SUSE 15.2

You can now specify MATE as the default desktop for SUSE 15.3 and SUSE 15.2 sessions. For more information about desktop environments, see the installation articles.

Session shadowing feature extended to all supported distributions

The session shadowing feature allows domain administrators to view users’ ICA sessions in an intranet. Previously available only for RHEL 7.x and Ubuntu 16.04, the feature is now extended to all distributions that the Linux VDA supports. For more information, see Shadow sessions.

Creating local users with specified attributes on non-domain-joined VDAs

When you open a session hosted on a non-domain-joined VDA, the VDA automatically creates a local user with default attributes. The VDA creates the local user based on the user name that you used to log on to Citrix Workspace app. You can now specify user attributes including the user’s User Identifier (UID), Group ID (GID), home directory, and login shell. For more information, see Non-domain-joined VDAs.

Support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.3

The Linux VDA now supports TLS 1.3. The script in the /opt/Citrix/VDA/sbin directory lets you enable TLS and set the minimum TLS version. For more information, see Secure user sessions using TLS.


Starting with this release, you must install .NET Runtime 6.0 before installing the Linux VDA.
