Receiver for Linux 13.3

This release resolves a number of previously reported issues and provides quality improvement enhancements.

Fixed issues in this release

Known issues in this release

Proxy support for the selfservice and storebrowse commands is not available by default. To use a proxy server with a StoreFront server, set the http_proxy and/or HTTPS_PROXY environment variable[s] before starting either command. Use the following format for the environment variable: .[:]  [#403729]

Citrix Receiver does not recognise the PIV smartcard when launching a desktop for the first time. [#491235]

Unclear error messages are displayed when Citrix Receiver cannot find the server immediately after it reboots [#553886]. 

An incorrect message dialog is displayed when the session reliability timer expires. [#556899]

An error message (for example, "Unknown Error 1000047") is displayed when connecting to the VDA with the SSLv3 protocol enabled. [#558641].

A generic network error is displayed when connecting to a Storefront server with the SSLv3 protocol enabled. [#558653]

Changing SharedUserMode using storebrowse,  -c SharedUserMode[=value], requires exact case matching using the value parameter. When using the value parameter for storebrowse, -c SharedUserMode[=value], you must specify an exact case match using "True" or "False". No error message is displayed if an invalid value parameter is used. For example, -c SharedUserMode=True. [#559402]

When connecting to a terminal server (for example, RDS) with only the SSLv3 protocol enabled the connection will fail as expected but it might not fail with a SSL peer handshake failure. [#567407]  

Generic USB webcam input fails on 64-bit systems. [#568556]

The storebrowse –d command does not delete previously cleared cached store information created by selfservice. This means that if the store is subsequently added the selfservice UI will load from the previous cached state. [#569806]

Connection Center doesn't support IPv6. [#571743]

When specifying a negative value to an integer config entry such as TCPRecvBufferSize in $HOME/.ICAClient/All_Regions.ini, the value is erroneously passed to WFICA as a positive value. To resolve this issue, use $ICAROOT/config/module.ini to set a negative value for TCPRecvBufferSize. [#575474]

GStreamer helper processes display a warning related to a GLIB threading issue. [#580753] 

The ARMEL browser plugin does not work at this release. [#588044]

New TLS  values are not applied for connections to the StoreFront server using selfservice/storebrowse when TLS values are changed after the Eula (license) has been accepted. Note that a running AuthManager does not read a modified TLS setting. [#570725]

If you experience problems with timezones not correctly mapping with XenApp/XenDesktop 7.6 sessions, ensure you have the hotfix referenced in CTX142640, and follow the steps for entry 7 [From ICATS760WX64014]. If that does not resolve the issue, try changing /etc/timezone (or /etc/localtime if /etc/timezone is not present) to be a symlink to a city name under /usr/share/zoneinfo/...

If you're timezone is still not supported, you may need to raise a support ticket to have a mapping added to the server.  [#LC1061] [#606648]

In the Platform Optimization SDK, the plugins for non-X11 environments possess two issues:

  • Sessions to Windows servers for XenDesktop 7.x fail if session reliability is used.
  • Sessions with 16-bit color depth show video corruption.
These issues exist in both the SDL Library-based SDL_plugin and the raw kernel Framebuffer-based FB_plugin sample plugin implementations. Any further plugins developed by the user can expect to suffer these same issues.
