VMware Horizon View 7.6 and more Released

VMware has released Horizon View 7.6, User Environment Manager 9.5.0 and App Volumes 2.14.2.

Horizon View 7.6

What's new:

Horizon Connection Server

  • Horizon Console
    • A user can login to Horizon Console with any predefined role or a combination of predefined roles.
  • Horizon 7 Subscription Licenses
    • You can use VMware Horizon 7 Cloud Connector to manage subscription licenses to a Horizon Cloud node hosted on the VMware Horizon Cloud Service. A subscription license removes the need to keep, retrieve, or manually enter a license key for product activation.
  • Cloud Pod Architecture
    • With Horizon Client 4.9, if a Windows client device has an RDS per-device CAL, it always presents that license. Windows clients that have earlier Horizon Client versions present a license only if they have a license for the specific pod. For the best handling of RDS licensing in a Cloud Pod Architecture environment, VMware recommends upgrading to the latest client and server software.
  • Horizon Administrator
    • You can no longer configure RDS Per-Device CAL storage options in Horizon Administrator. RDS Per-Device CALs are now stored only on the client device by default.
  • Horizon Clients using IPv4 and Horizon Clients using IPv6 can be handled concurrently on TCP port 8443 and on UDP port 8443
    • (for BEAT) when connecting to a Unified Access Gateway appliance version 3.3 or later.
  • vSphere Support
    • vSphere 6.5 U2 is supported.

Horizon Agent for Linux

  • True SSO support on the RHEL/CentOS 7 desktops
    • True single sign-on (SSO) is now supported on RHEL 7 and CentOS desktops.
  • Additional supported platforms
    • Support the the Ubuntu 18.04, RHEL/CentOS 6.10, and RHEL/CentOS 7.5 platforms have been added.
  • Instant-clone support for RHEL 7.1 and later versions
    • You can now create instant-clone floating desktop pool on systems with RHEL 7.1 or later installed.

Horizon Agent

  • Redirecting serial ports from Windows client devices to published desktops and applications
    • You can now enable the Serial Port Redirection option when you install Horizon Agent on an RDS host to allow end users to redirect serial ports from their client devices to published desktops and applications. Previously, you could only enable this option when you installed Horizon Agent on a virtual desktop. This feature also requires Horizon Client 4.9 for Windows.
  • Redirecting geolocation information from Windows client devices to remote desktops and published applications
    • You can enable the Geolocation Redirection option when you install Horizon Agent on a virtual desktop or RDS host to redirect geolocation information from Windows client devices to virtual desktops, published desktops, or published applications. This feature also requires Horizon Client 4.9 for Windows.
  • HTML5 Multimedia Redirection improvements
    • Live streaming is now supported with the HTML5 Multimedia Redirection feature.

Horizon GPO Bundle

  • Clipboard audit feature
    • You can enable the clipboard audit feature to record information about clipboard data that is copied from the agent machine to the Windows client machine. To enable the clipboard audit feature, you enable the Configure clipboard audit group policy setting for VMware Blast or PCoIP. You can optionally configure the Whether block clipboard redirection to client side when client doesn't support audit group policy setting to specify whether to block clipboard redirection to clients that do not support the clipboard audit feature. This feature also requires Horizon Client 4.9 for Windows.
  • Geolocation Redirection feature
    • You can configure the Geolocation Redirection feature to redirect geolocation information from Windows client devices to remote desktops and published applications. To configure the Geolocation Redirection feature, you configure the Enable VMware Geolocation Redirection and Enable URL list for VMware Geolocation Redirection group policy settings. For more information, see the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document. This feature also requires Horizon Client 4.9 for Windows.
  • HTML5 Multimedia Redirection group policy changes

  • Proxy settings in Skype for Business on Windows Clients
    • The Virtualization Pack for Skype for Business checks for proxy settings on the Horizon Client for Windows system, and uses those settings for media traffic.
  • VMware Blast DSCP Marking policy setting
    • You can establish Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) values in outgoing Blast network traffic, as specified by the various individual settings for each network hop.

User Environment Manager 9.5.0

What's new:

  • Configuration templates. These templates are pre-configured Flex configuration files that are available for many popular applications. A Configuration template simplifies the initial setup of an application and helps persist the most common user settings for that application.
