Citrix Receiver 1.0 for HTML5

Citrix have released a Receiver 1.0 for HTML 5

Citrix Receiver for HTML5 enables users to access desktops and applications provided by XenDesktop, XenApp, and AppController through HTML5-compatible Web browsers without needing to install Citrix clients on their devices.

Receiver for HTML5 integrates with Access Gateway and StoreFront to enable users to access desktops and applications directly through their Web browsers. Resources provided by XenDesktop, XenApp, and AppController are aggregated in a StoreFront store and made available through a Receiver for Web site. Users without Citrix clients installed on their devices log on to the site using HTML5-compatible Web browsers and their desktops and applications are accessed directly in browser tabs.

Receiver for HTML5 User Experience

Receiver for HTML5 enables users who cannot install Citrix Receiver on their devices to access their desktops and applications through their Web browsers. Users without Citrix clients installed on their devices log on to Receiver for Web sites using HTML5-compatible Web browsers and access their resources directly in browser tabs.

Users must connect to Receiver for Web sites through Access Gateway to access desktops provided by XenDesktop, Web and SaaS applications provided by AppController, and applications provided by most supported versions of XenApp. For more information, seeĀ System Requirements for Receiver for HTML5 1.0.

By setting a XenApp policy, you can enable local access through Receiver for HTML5 to applications provided by XenApp 6.5 with Feature Pack 1 without routing connections through Access Gateway. For more information, seeĀ Installing and Configuring Receiver for HTML5.

To access their applications using Receiver for HTML5, users navigate to a Receiver for Web site using a HTML5-compatible browser running on a supported operating system. By default, when a user accesses a Receiver for Web site from a computer running Windows or Mac OS X, the site attempts to determine whether Citrix Receiver is installed on the user’s device. If Citrix Receiver cannot be detected, the default configuration enables users logging on to the site with a supported browser to access their desktops and applications through Receiver for HTML5. When users running Chrome OS log on to a Receiver for Web site, Receiver for HTML5 is always used to provide access to their desktops and applications.

When a user accesses a desktop or application through Receiver for HTML5, the resource starts in a new browser tab or window, according to the user’s browser settings. A floating toolbar containing controls for Receiver for HTML5 is displayed in the tab or window. The clipboard button enables users to copy and paste data between the local clipboard on the device and the resource running in the browser. Users can send the CTRL+ALT+DELETE key combination to their desktops and applications using the lock button.
