What’s new in 2112
Version 2112 of the Linux VDA includes the following new features and enhancements:
Support for Amazon Linux 2 (experimental)
As an experimental feature, we have added Amazon Linux 2 as a supported distribution. For more information, see System requirements.
Full support for HDX screen sharing
Previously available as an experimental feature, HDX screen sharing is now fully supported. You can share the screen of your virtual desktop with session users on other virtual desktops. The screen sharing feature is disabled by default. For more information, see HDX screen sharing.
Rendezvous connection through an HTTP proxy
The Linux VDA now supports establishing Rendezvous connections through an HTTP proxy that uses TCP as the transport protocol for ICA. For more information, see Rendezvous protocol.
Rendezvous proxy authentication
A domain-joined Linux VDA can now authenticate to a proxy server for Rendezvous connections. For more information, see Rendezvous protocol.
Support for adaptive audio
Adaptive audio is enabled by default. With adaptive audio, you don’t need to manually configure the audio quality policies on the VDA. Adaptive audio dynamically adjusts audio sampling bitrates based on network conditions to provide a premium audio experience. For more information, see Adaptive audio.
Support for new Linux streaming target devices
For Linux streaming, the following operating systems are now supported:
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP2 (SUSE 15.2)
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 SP3 (SUSE 15.3)
For more information, see Streaming Linux target devices in the Citrix Provisioning documentation.
Keyboard layout synchronization enhancement
With KeyboardLayout set to Server Default in the WFCLIENT.ini file, the previously selected keyboard layout is retained after you reconnect to a session.
Keyboard input enhancement
We have addressed several issues and added support for more special characters and shortcuts.
