StoreFront manages the delivery of desktops and applications from XenApp and XenDesktop servers, and XenMobile servers in the data center to user devices. StoreFront enumerates and aggregates available desktops and applications into stores. Users access StoreFront stores through Citrix Receiver directly or by browsing to a Citrix Receiver for Web or Desktop Appliance site. Users can also access StoreFront using thin clients and other end-user-compatible devices through a XenApp Services site.
StoreFront keeps a record of each user's applications and automatically updates their devices. Users have a consistent experience as they roam between their smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. StoreFront is an integral component of XenApp 7.x and XenDesktop 7.x but can be used with several versions of XenApp and XenDesktop.
StoreFront 3.11 includes a number of fixed and known issues.
Citrix Receiver auto-update. Administrators can configure the Citrix Receiver auto-update feature in the web.config file in StoreFront.

This feature is supported in Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.8 and Citrix Receiver for Mac 12.6. For information on how to configure auto-update in StoreFront, see the documentation for Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.8 and Citrix Receiver for Mac 12.6.
