The following new features are part of this release of the Linux VDA.
This release provides support for USB redirection. With this functionaliy, USB devices are shared between Citrix Receiver and the Linux VDA desktop. Once a USB device is redirected to the desktop, users can use the USB device as if it were locally connected. See Configuring USB redirection for more information.
With version Linux VDA version 1.4, support was added for non-seamless published applications and session sharing. This functionality does not require additional installation steps, and no special settings are required for published apps. For more information, refer to Publishing applications.
Anonymous login allows anonymous user to logon to the Linux VDA without authentication. An anonymous session doesn’t have a disconnected state, every disconnection causes logoff which clears the environment for user-specific information. See Integrate NIS with Active Directory for more information.
Linux VDA Group Policy supports Citrix studio policy, which can be configured by Citrix Studio. The Linux VDA does not have the same policies as Window. For more information about the policy list for Linux VDA, refer to Setting up SSSD.
