Citrix Director:  The monitoring & troubleshooting tool for XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x

We know it’s important for our customers to be able to monitor and manage their environments.  Back in August, we released Citrix Director 7.6 that provided a ton of new enhancements and features (check out this blog).  We are please to announce the release of 7.6.100 that builds upon 7.6 with some new features.
