New features in XenApp 7.5 and XenDesktop 7.5

For those of you who (legitimately) felt lost after the announcement of the future XenApp 7.5 and XenDesktop 7.5 releases, below I put a list of some of the new features for which there are not yet official information on the Citrix website:

  • AppDNA is included for Platiunm users with a limited application count of 99.999 Apps (quite enough I’d say :))
  • HDX Mobile has been improved
  • Web Interface 5.4 and Citrix Secure Gateway have an extended support until August 2016
  • Citrix Secure Gateway is not supported by XenApp 7.5 and XenDesktop 7.5
  • XenApp 7.5 will be out in three editions:
    • Advanced
    • Enterprise
    • Platinum
  • The XenDesktop App Edition is dead
  • XenDesktop App licenses will be equivalent to XenApp Enterprise licenses
  • XenDesktop 7.5 will be out in three editions:
    • Advanced
    • Enterprise
    • Platinum
  • StoreFront 2.5 will be released as well
  • Newly acquired Framehawk technologies will not be integrated in this release
  • XA and XD 7.5 will support OSs from Windows 2008 R2 upwards
  • No new versions of EdgeSight will be released, only Director can be used (Director is under continued development)
  • MCS will be able to provision to the cloud (AWS, CloudPlatform)
  • Windows Azure support is planned but not yet available in this release
  • There will be one single installer for both XD and XA 7.5, the license file differentiates the available features

More info will follow… hopefully… stay tuned 😉
