About Receiver for HTML5 1.6

Nov 01, 2017

Receiver for HTML5 is hosted on StoreFront servers and enables users to access virtual desktops and hosted applications from a web browser. Resources delivered by XenDesktop and XenApp are aggregated in a StoreFront store and made available through a Receiver for Web site. With Receiver for HTML5 enabled on the site, users can access desktops and applications within their web browsers without needing to install Receiver locally on their devices. 

What's New in Receiver for HTML5

  • Graphics and audio optimizations. Audio processing, memory management, and legacy codec support optimizations improve audio-video playback and bandwidth efficiency with XenApp and XenDesktop. Visually lossless mode in XenApp and XenDesktop 7.6 is also enabled.
  • Fixed issue: It is no longer necessary to disable WebGL on the Firefox browser to prevent applications and desktops from failing to open while using Ubuntu OS. 

Receiver for HTML5 Features

  • Support for HDX Insight. NetScaler HDX Insight monitors applications launched inside a Receiver session.
  • Support for CloudBridge. Receiver for HTML5 supports CloudBridge disabling compression and printer compression, as well as using HDX Insight analytics to display in CloudBridge Insight Center. 

Known Issues

  • Copying and pasting a large amount of data from the clipboard between HTML5 Receiver ICA sessions may cause the session window to freeze or disconnect. [# 70236264]
