I’ve recorded a short video which gives a little more detail and a few screenshots in regards to the new EdgeSight functionality which you can find at http://www.citrix.com/tv/#videos/1164. In addition, there is a short ESLT 3.5 video from a month or so ago detailing those new features which is available at http://www.citrix.com/tv/#videos/666
