Please join me to review the new in this release:
VMware Horizon 7 version 7.0.1 provides the following new features and enhancements:
- Configure the clipboard memory size for VMware Blast and PCoIP sessions
View administrators can configure the server clipboard memory size by setting GPOs for VMware Blast and PCoIP sessions. Horizon Client 4.1 users on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X systems can configure the client clipboard memory size. The effective memory size is the lesser of the server and client clipboard memory size values.
- VMware Blast network recovery enhancements
Network recovery is now supported for VMware Blast sessions initiated from iOS, Android, Mac OS X, Linux, and Chrome OS clients. Previously, network recovery was supported only for Windows client sessions. If you lose your network connection unexpectedly during a VMware Blast session, Horizon Client attempts to reconnect to the network and you can continue to use your remote desktop or application. The nework recovery feature also supports IP roaming, which means you can resume your VMware Blast session after switching to a WiFi network.
- Configure View Administrator to not remember the login name
View administrators can configure View Administrator to not display the Remember user name check box and therefore not remember the administrator’s login name. For more information, see KB 2145405: Configure View Administrator to not remember the login name.
- Allow Mac OS X users to save credentials
View administrators can configure View Connection Server to allow Horizon Client Mac OS X systems to remember a user’s user name, password, and domain information. If users choose to have their credentials saved, the credentials are added to the login fields in Horizon Client on subsequent connections.
- Horizon 7 for Linux desktops enhancements
- Support for managed virtual machines
- Support for smart card redirection with SSO
