What’s new

What’s new in 2203 LTSR

Version 2203 of the Linux VDA includes the following new features and enhancements:

Full support for Rendezvous V2

When using the Citrix Gateway service, the Rendezvous protocol allows traffic to bypass the Citrix Cloud Connectors and connect directly and securely with the Citrix Cloud control plane.

There are two types of traffic to consider: 1) control traffic for VDA registration and session brokering; 2) HDX traffic.

Rendezvous V1 allows for HDX traffic to bypass the Cloud Connectors, but it still requires Cloud Connectors to proxy all control traffic for VDA registration and session brokering.

Standard AD domain joined machines and non-domain joined machines are supported for using Rendezvous V2 with single-session and multi-session Linux VDAs. With non-domain joined machines, Rendezvous V2 allows for both HDX traffic and control traffic to bypass the Cloud Connectors.

For more information, see Rendezvous V2.

Easy install GUI is now available

Previously, you could only operate a command line interface for using easy install. This release offers an easy install GUI that guides you through the following operations:

  • Check the system environment
  • Install dependencies
  • Join the VDA to a specified domain
  • Configure the runtime environment

To use the easy install GUI, run the /opt/Citrix/VDA/bin/easyinstall command in the desktop environment of your VDA. For more information, see the Interactive mode section of the Quick installation by using easy install (Recommended) article.

HDX graphics improvement

Thinwire can now improve the numbers of Frames Per Second (FPS) by parallelizing certain tasks, with the overhead of slightly higher overall CPU consumption. This feature is disabled by default. For more information, see the Parallel processing section of the Configure graphics article.

What’s new in earlier releases
