Citrix Receiver for HTML5 2.6.9
Important updates about Citrix Receiver
Citrix Cloud TLS Version Deprecation
To improve the security of connections to Citrix Cloud, Citrix will block any communication over Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 as of March 15, 2019.
Who this impacts
This deprecation affects all users who use Citrix Receiver to connect to a Citrix Cloud deployment. It does not affect users who use Citrix Receiver to connect to StoreFront. It also does not affect users of Citrix Workspace app because Citrix Workspace app uses TLS 1.2 by default.
How this impacts you
If you are using the versions of Citrix Receiver or Citrix Workspace app listed below (or later), no action is required. If you are using older versions of Citrix Receiver in a Citrix Cloud deployment, connection attempts with those clients will fail starting March 15, 2019.
To ensure successful connection to Citrix Workspace from user endpoint devices, the version of Citrix Receiver installed must be equal to or greater than the versions listed below that support TLS 1.2.
- Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.2.1000 or later

Citrix Workspace app provides the full capabilities of Citrix Receiver, as well as new capabilities based on your organization’s Citrix deployment.
Citrix Workspace app is built on Citrix Receiver technology, and is fully backward compatible with all Citrix solutions.

Citrix 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 XenApp and XenDesktop are aggregated in a StoreFront store and made available through a Citrix Receiver for Web site. With Citrix Receiver for HTML5 enabled on the site, users can access desktops and applications within their web browsers without needing to install Citrix Receiver locally on their devices.
When used in conjunction with the centralized customization and branding capabilities of StoreFront 3.0 and later, users of this Citrix Receiver for HTML5 release will receive a centrally managed app and desktop selection experience from StoreFront.
