What's new in 12.6

Citrix Receiver Updates
Citrix Receiver Updates provides automatic updates for Citrix Receiver for Mac and the HDX Real Time Optimization Pack without the need to download updates manually. Citrix Receiver Updates gives you automatic access to the latest version of Citrix Receiver with all the newest features and most up-to-date fixes and security updates.

By default, Citrix Receiver Updates is set to enabled and checks for updates daily. When an update is available, Citrix Receiver notifies users to accept the download and install the updates.

You can set Citrix Receiver Updates to any of the following options:

  • Notify me when updates are available
  • Do not notify me when updates are available
  • Leave updates up to my administrator
Citrix Receiver Updates can be configured on both Citrix Receiver for Mac and StoreFront. In Citrix Receiver for Mac, configure Citrix Receiver Updates by using the Preferences dialog.
You can configure Citrix Receiver Updates using StoreFront only when you add or refresh a StoreFront account. Citrix Receiver for Mac automatically detects the auto-update client configuration and notifies you.
For information about configuring Citrix Receiver Updates in Citrix Receiver for Mac, see Configuring auto-update.
Thinwire 32-bit cursor support
Citrix Receiver for Mac now supports 32-bit cursors in Thinwire. In previous versions of Citrix Receiver for Mac, if a 32-bit cursor is used in the VDA, the transparent portion of the cursor appeared as black. With this release of Citrix Receiver for Mac, cursors now work as intended.
Joint Server Certificate Validation Policy

Citrix Receiver for Mac 12.5 and later introduced a new, stricter, validation policy for server certificates, which might affect session launches. For more information, see Knowledge Center article CTX224709 and the Secure Communications documentation page.
