Citrix have released a new version of Citrix XenDesktop 7.17 and XenApp 7.17 and is now available for download.

I am pretty excited about this release because HDX 3D pro have also been improved with h265 it’s handled selectively for appropriate regions of a session for the best possible combination of quality and performance with Selective H.265 Encoding with NVIDIA Hardware. Another great news is that XenServer 7.4 finally supports vGPU Xenmotion with NVIDIA Pascal GPU’s and also now supports AMD MxGPU.

Customers that are using Linux can now use Citrix Linux VDA 3D Pro with NVIDIA pascal GPUs such as P4, P40, P6, P100. The Citrix Linux VDA 3D Pro works now with NVIDIA vGPU for NVIDIA pascal GPUs and also supports vGPU hardware encoding, which means more hardware encoding is done on GPU with HDX and not on CPU, this new feature will resolve more CPU ressource available, which application can benefit from and also means better user experience.

Citrix raises the bar of for user experience and new product release of following technologies:

  • Virtual Delivery Agents 7.17 for ServerOS and ClientOS
  • Virtual Delivery Agent 7.17 for Linux
  • Self-Service Password Reset 1.1.10
  • Director 7.17
  • Profile Management 7.17
  • Storefront 3.14
  • Provisioning Services 7.17
  • Session Recording 7.17
