XenDesktop 5.5 includes the following new features and enhancements:
UDP and RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol) support
Improved multi-tasking with real-time applications
Smoother audio when network latency fluctuates ("jitter")
Improved echo cancellation when using speakers and a microphone
When running a typical office user workload, as represented by the standard Login Virtual Session Indexer (VSI) "Medium" knowledge worker test, Citrix expects customers to see a 30% reduction in bandwidth consumption along with reduced CPU consumption on the server (leading to higher server scalability) and improved desktop image quality on low bandwidth connections.
In addition, RDP protocol support in HDX Broadcast has been enhanced to support RDP 7.1 with RemoteFX.
New HDX Plug-n-Play capabilities include support for WAN-connected scanners (via the TWAIN standard) and Japanese and Korean keyboards. Usability of removable storage devices has been improved. Client Drive Mapping now supports read-only access on all Virtual Desktop Agents. Client Drive Mapping also supports Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path support on Virtual Desktop Agents with Windows 7 and Windows Vista environments.
