What's new in 13.6

Adaptive transport

  • Adaptive transport for XenApp and XenDesktop optimizes data transport by leveraging a new Citrix protocol called EDT (Enlightened Data Transport) in preference to TCP whenever possible. Compared to TCP and UDP, EDT delivers a superior user experience on challenging long-haul WAN and Internet connections, while maintaining high server scalability and efficient use of bandwidth. EDT is built on top of UDP and improves data throughput for all ICA virtual channels including Thinwire display remoting, file transfer (Client Drive Mapping), printing, multimedia redirection and others. When UDP is not available, adaptive transport automatically reverts to TCP. For more information, see Adaptive transport.
  • You must enable the HDX adaptive transport policy setting in Citrix Studio. You can disable it from Receiver settings.
  • Currently this feature is supported only for direct connections without going through NetScaler Gateway.

Joint Server Certificate Validation Policy
Citrix Receiver for Linux 13.6 and later introduces a new, stricter, validation policy for server certificates, which might affect session launches. For more information, see Joint Server Certificate Validation Policy and Knowledge Center articles CTX224709 and CTX221453.
