Change to Citrix Casting

Previously, Citrix Casting was enabled by default during the Citrix Workspace app installation. Starting from this release, Citrix Casting is enabled only if you run Citrix Workspace app installer with the `/IncludeCitrixCasting` command during installation. When you update Citrix Workspace app, the Citrix Casting gets updated automatically. For more information, see Citrix Casting.

Quick access to resources

Starting from this release, you can get quick access to your recently used apps, desktops, and files. Right-click on the Citrix Workspace app icon in the taskbar to view and launch the recently used resources from the pop-up menu.

Sign out custom web store upon CWA exit

Starting from this release, admins can configure Citrix Workspace app in such a way that it exits when you sign out or close custom web stores. Admins can configure this by setting signoutCustomWebstoreOnExit attribute to True in the Global App Configuration Service. For more information, see Global App Configuration Service documentation.

Support to open Workspace app in maximized mode

Starting from this release, you can choose to launch the Citrix Workspace app in maximized mode. Instead of maximizing the Citrix Workspace app manually every time, you can set the `maximise workspace window` property in the Global App Configuration Service to enable the Workspace app to open in the maximized mode by default. For more information about the Global App Configuration Service, see Getting Started.

Citrix Workspace Browser

This release includes Citrix Workspace Browser version 99.1.1.2, based on Chromium version 99. For more information about the Citrix Workspace Browser, see the Citrix Workspace Browser documentation
