- Streaming 64bit applications to 64bit platforms: This is a yet another definitive example of Citrix hearing customers and expands Citrix application compatibility
- Enhanced SDK: For the customers that are using SDK to create profiles/packages for application streaming, Citrix have expanded the APIs to be able to create browser plug-in’s, define rules, sign the packages and also manage services
- Improved Scalability – In response to the market asks/speaks Citrix have reduced the Single Server Scalability overhead significantly and this means ability to run more XenDesktops with Application Streaming than the previous version of Application Streaming.
Please note, Citrix have updated both Citrix Streaming Profiler and Citrix Offline Plugin components. It’s not required to recreate the profiles/packages (though Citrix recommends, it’s preferred to reap the full benefits of changes in both the components), since Citrix made the Citrix Offline Plug-in work with the previous version of profiles/packages, as always.
