As you may have already noticed, earlier this week we opened up our Tech Preview program for optimized support of the Microsoft Lync™ 2013 client to all current Citrix XenApp customers under active Subscription Advantage. This phase of the Tech Preview program gives our customers the opportunity to evaluate the Citrix Receiver Display Adapter that integrates with Microsoft’s Lync™ 2013 VDI Plug-in for Windows. The Display Adapter plug-in has been posted on the Citrix Downloads page under “Citrix Receiver” in the “Betas and Tech Previews” section (visible to Citrix customers and partners after login).  Please use the Support Forum to provide feedback or request assistance from the community.

Would you like to learn more about how Citrix optimizes the delivery of Lync 2010 and Lync 2013 from XenApp, XenDesktop and VDI-in-a-Box? Then be sure to attend my session at Synergy Los Angeles 2013 next month, “Excalibur – Reinventing HDX for mobile, 3D graphics and beyond“, which will include a discussion of Unified Communications technologies.
