Please provide your feedback before 28th November2020.   

What’s new with EAR build:    

App Protection [Experimental] 

Introducing App protection Tech Preview with Workspace app for Linux with this release. 

App protection is an add-on feature that provides enhanced security when using Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. The feature restricts the ability of clients to be compromised by keylogging and screen capturing malware. App protection prevents exfiltration of confidential information such as user credentials and sensitive information displayed on the screen. The feature prevents users and attackers from taking screenshots and from using keyloggers to glean and exploit sensitive information. For information on app protection configuration on Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, see App protection

Known Limitations: 

1. Screen capture protection will protect whole screen until all the protected apps are closed.

2. The feature is only available with the tar package in the Download links.

    a. While installing the tar package, a below message will come and the default is no.

            Do you want to install App Protection support? [default n]: 

3. After installation, please restart the machine or it will not work as expected. 

Note: App Protection is applicable to x64 and Armhf distributions.

Authentication Enhancement[Experimental]

To provide a seamless experience, the authentication dialog now appears inside Citrix Workspace app. The Store details appear on the logon screen. Authentication tokens are encrypted and stored so that you don’t need to reenter the credentials in case of a system reboot or session restart. 

Note: This feature is only applicable for Cloud deployments.

This feature is disabled by default. To enable this feature:

  1. Go to config, then AuthManConfig.xml 
  2. Set the value of “AuthManLiteEnabled” to “true” to use the feature

Note: libsecret is a system requirement for the above feature to work.

If libsecret is not present and you enable this feature, you may see some issues with session launch. Please restart Linux Workspace app again to improve the experience. 

Client Drive Mapping Enhancement 

With this release, the Client drive mapping is per store for both desktops and applications. User can map the folders as usual from the preferences or add in the wfclient.ini (path to map and the drive name). 

Default access levels are “Ask me each time”. Permissions to access the mapped drives can be set from the session using the preferences option in the desktop viewer or the preferences option in the connection center. 

Fixed Issues 

  1. MS Teams Optimization is stabilized further with this release.
  2. Alt+Ctrl key never release when set KeyboardLayout=(Server Default).
  3. For BCR with CEF, New window spawned from a redirected page is not rendered in Browser.
  4. Now you can redirect mic and webcam devices using BCR with CEF by setting “CefEnableMediaDevices” in All_Regions.ini to “true”. 
  5. When a user attempts to reconnect to a disconnected session the session will sometimes hang graphically until the SmartCard is removed and then reinserted. 
  6. Multiple Audio Redirection default behavior is set to True.

Known Issues

  1. During an optimized Teams call, Video may freeze, and Audio playback wouldn’t switch to client machine built-in speaker once you unplug a headset during a MS teams video call. It is recommended to not unplug the audio device in the middle of the call.
