Previously available as an experimental feature, adjusting average bit rates based on bandwidth estimates is now fully supported. In addition, support for image sharpening is added. For more information, see Configure graphics.

File transfer

This release supports file transfers between the Linux VDA and the client device. This feature is available when the client device runs a web browser that supports the HTML5 sandbox attribute.

Starting with this release, you can use Citrix Workspace app for Linux and Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.10 to access virtual desktops and applications from within a Linux virtual desktop session, without entering user credentials for a second time. For more information, see Double-hop single sign-on authentication.
