Citrix Workspace App 2105.5 for HTML5 - Tech Preview

Release Date: May 5, 2021

What's new in 2105.5

Enhanced East Asian language input and display feature

Improved input and display experience with Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters. Currently, this enhancement is limited to sessions hosted on Linux VDAs.

Input Method Editor (IME) is a key feature for users of the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) languages. A generic version of the feature is available in Citrix Workspace app and on VDAs. Earlier, the generic client IME user interface (including the composition and the candidate windows) was positioned in the upper left corner of the screen. It did not follow the cursor and was therefore often located far from the cursor position. Starting with this release, we're enhancing the feature, allowing you to compose CJK characters at the current cursor location within your Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 session as shown below.

Limitations:

  • This feature is currently supported in Citrix Workspace app for HTML5 session running on Linux VDA 2012 or later. 
  • This feature is not supported on Internet Explorer nor on Apple Safari 12 and earlier.

Configure

Prerequisite

  • Enable the Client Keyboard Layout Sync and IME Improvement policy.
  • Use Citrix Linux VDA version 2012 or later.
  • The browser language needs to be Japanese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), or Korean.
  • Use Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari 13 or later, or Microsoft Edge.

Configuration

The Generic Client IME feature is enabled by default as of version 2105. As an administrator, you can enable or disable the feature using the configuration.js file on the StoreFront server (%ProgramFiles%\Citrix\Receiver StoreFront\HTML5Client).

To disable this feature for a browser language, edit the configuration.js file and set "features.ime.mode.<languageID>" to "seamlessIme." If "seamlessIme" is set, the Generic Client IME feature is disabled. 

configuration.js:

var HTML5_CONFIG = {

    ...

    'features': {

           ime: {

            mode: {

                "ja": "seamlessIme",

                "zh": "seamlessIme",

                "ko": "seamlessIme"

            }

    }}}

To enable this feature for a browser language, edit the configuration.js file and set "features.ime.mode.<languageID>" to "ctxIme", or leave the mode property empty ({}), which is the default behavior.

configuration.js:

var HTML5_CONFIG = {

    ...

    'features': {

        ime: {

            mode: {

                "ja": "ctxIme",

                "zh": "ctxIme",

                "ko": "ctxIme"

            }

}}}

Fixed issues in 2105.5

  • When using a published app that is able to print using the Print Screen key in a client session, pages print twice. [RFHTMCRM-5085, CVADHELP-17119]
  • Attempts to completely disable CEIP (Customer Experience Improvement Program) in cloud environments are unsuccessful. [CVADHELP-17415]

Known issues in 2105.5

  • The input of the first character might not appear exactly at the location of the workspace session’s cursor position. [RFHTMCRM-4909]
  • When a CJK Generic Client IME user single-clicks a cell and types in Microsoft Excel, the Candidate and Composition window UI might not appear at the focus position. As a workaround is to double-click the cell. [RFHTMCRM-5185]
