Citrix Workspace app for Linux 2108 - Technology Preview

Release Date: Jul 14, 2021

Note: This is an Early Access Build shared for the purpose of testing/validation with the intent to make organizations ready for the upcoming release and is NOT advised to be deployed in production environments. 

We are excited to share with you the Early Access Release of our next version of Citrix Workspace app for Linux.

Please provide your feedback here before 24th July 2021.

What’s new with EAR build:

App protection  

App protection is now fully functional. The feature is enabled by default.

However, App protection for Authentication and Self service plugin screens are disabled by default and you need to enable them manually.

Previously, you could not launch protected resources from Citrix Workspace app when Mozilla Firefox was running. Starting with this release, you can launch protected resources from Citrix Workspace app while Mozilla Firefox is running. 

Limitation:  

Sometimes, you cannot launch protected resources when an application that is installed from the Snap Store is running.  

As a workaround, identify the application that causes the issue from the Citrix Workspace app log file and close the application. 

When you are trying to take a screenshot of a protected window, the entire screen, including the non-protected apps in the background, are grayed out. 

App protection works best with the following Operating Systems along with Gnome Display Manager: 

  • 64-bit Ubuntu 18.04+  
  • 64-bit Debian 9+ 
  • 64-bit CentOS7.5+ 
  • 64-bit RHEL7.5+ 
  • ARMHF 32bit Raspbian 10 (Buster)+ 

Audio configuration change 

Previously, the default value of the VdcamVersion4Support attribute in the module.ini file was set to True. With this release, the default is set to False. As a result, only the default audio device with the name Citrix HDX Audio appears in the session. This enhancement aims to minimize the audio issues that occur when the attribute is set to True.   

To enable this feature, do the following: 

1. Navigate to the \<ICAROOT\>/config/ folder and open the module.ini file 

2. Go to the ClientAudio section and add the following entry: VdcamVersion4Support=True 

3. Restart the session for the changes to take effect. 

Fixed issues    

1. Attempts to copy text from the user device and paste it in the session can fail.

2. When App protection is installed, the desktop UI can become unresponsive and recovers after a few seconds.

3. In a desktop session, after a page is redirected using CEF-BCR, the keyboard focus might remain on the BCR overlay. The keyboard focus does not shift to other open apps. 

4. During a Microsoft Teams meeting, the video aspect ratio might not display as expected when you select the Fill frame option.

5. During a Microsoft Teams video call, the Desktop viewer can become unresponsive.

6. Attempts to launch desktops or applications using Citrix Workspace app might fail and the ICAClient.log file displays the following message: 

    "Waiting for handler grpc to be ready." 

Known issue 

The App protection feature might not work as expected in a fresh installation of Citrix Workspace app. As a workaround, restart your machine for the changes to take effect.
