What’s new in 2107

Version 2107 of the Linux VDA includes the following new features and enhancements:

Centrify support for MCS-created RHEL 7/CentOS 7 and RHEL 8/CentOS 8 machines

We have added Centrify support for joining MCS-created RHEL 7/CentOS 7 and RHEL 8/CentOS 8 machines to Windows domains. For more information, see Use Machine Creation Services (MCS) to create Linux VMs.

Simplified kernel module rebuild for USB redirection

We now provide in the Linux VDA source code file, The script helps to simplify building the VHCI kernel modules (usb-vhci-hcd.ko and usb-vhci-iocif.ko) with and without the Dynamic Kernel Module Support (DKMS) option. DKMS helps to rebuild the VHCI kernel modules automatically when a kernel is upgraded. For more information, see Configure USB redirection.

Support for RHEL 8.4 and CentOS 8 (2105)

We have added RHEL 8.4 and CentOS 8 (2105) as supported distributions. For more information, see System requirements.

Smart card support for Debian

You can use a smart card connected to the client device for authentication when logging on to a Linux virtual desktop session. This release further lets you use smart cards in Debian 10.7 sessions. For more information, see Support for smart cards.
