Release: IGEL Linux V4 -> V5 Upgrade Firmware for UDx-x3x and UDx-x4x devices

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

IMPORTANT:

– USE THIS FIRMWARE ONLY FOR AN UPGRADE FROM IGEL LINUX 4.x TO IGEL LINUX 5.01.110!

– IGEL BUDDY UPDATE IS NOT SUPPORTED IN THIS UPGRADE PATH!

– ONLY THE DEVICES LISTED IN SECTION “SUPPORTED DEVICES” CAN BE UPGRADED!

This is a description of the upgrade process:

1. Initiate the update

2. The updates for version 4.12.320 are downloaded and installed

3. After an automatic reboot the update to IGEL Linux 5 is installed. No user interaction is required.

4. The next automatic reboot boots up the new IGEL Linux 5 system.

Downgrade path:

ONLY devices that have been initially shipped with IGEL Linux 4.x are capable to downgrade to IGEL Linux 4.x again.

1. Install the firmware 4.x again

2. A reset to factory defaults is recommended.

Comment: Please note, the mentioned Firmware 4.12.320 is coming with this update and is included in the archive!

From the 4.12.320 Release notes:

Supported devices: UD2-x30 LX,UD3-x31 LX,UD5-x30 LX,UD3-x40 LX,UD5-x40 LX,
UD9-73x LX

Comment: The Upgrade Firmware to IGEL V5 comes with the Firmware Version 5.01.110 but the release note is similar to the 5.01.100 LX Firmware without a fixed password check. Iam not sure if the 5.01.100 will be also replaced but currently this is how it looks like. Have fun for your test’s!

Cheers

Information: Upgrade IGEL Linux V4 to IGEL Linux V5 (Update)

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

Hello Folks,

as you see IGEL has released the IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2 (based on IGEL Linux V5) and the IGEL Linux V5.

What is important to know regarding the Upgrade?

 

IGEL Universal Desktop OS -> IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2 = Not supported

The hardware requirements have significantly changed (increased) and also some older hardware platform’s are not supported anymore with the V5. If you want to upgrade you need a seperate license / installer media and you MUST test it (OS V2) in advance!

Update: IGEL will release a update Firmware to upgrade from IGEL Universal Desktop OS to the new Linux V5 based Universal Desktop OS but you still require a new license (!). This update will be only available on request regarding the fact that the upgrade can make an installation unusable if no “new” licenses are in place and to prevent a not wanted upgrade.

 

IGEL Universal Desktop LX -> IGEL Linux V5 = Supported for new IGEL Dual Core devices, older devices with a single core CPU are not supported for an Upgrade. Update: The last Generation of single core devices is also supported, like UD3-730 for the Upgrade.

What is important here, a direct firmware update will not work! I’ve already test this so you can not mess up you existing installation in any way and the firmware files can be located in the same folder like the IGEL Linux V4 firmwares on your webserver, currently iam waiting for the “step between” to upgrade my dual core device’s but it’s not yet released(!).

Update: Upgrade pack is available for download here http://www.myigel.biz/index.php?dir=IGEL_UNIVERSAL_DESKTOP_FIRMWARE/LX/UPGRADE_FW_V4_TO_V5/

 

Will i still receive updates for my IGEL Linux V4 devices = Yes, nothing changed here at the moment.

 

What  happens to Windows (W7)= Nothing, only a change for the Product Name after the update.
If i perform a upgrade from Linux V4 to V5, do i need to update my profiles in the UMS= If you want to configure new settings of course but you should not be forced to change existing configurations because the most settings should be similar. In any way the known basic rule: Test in advance!

 

Should i test the new IGEL Linux V5 before rolling out the firmware or Universal Desktop OS V2 to a bunch of devices= Yes, it’s a complete new product and it don’t have to work like the old one! …otherwise you would not deploy it, right?

 

What happens to my current order or if i don’t want the new IGEL Linux V5 in my IGEL Linux V4 environment= Check with the IGEL Sales Rep/Service, IGEL started shipping the new firmware and if you don’t want to deploy the IGEL Linux V5 you should check in advance what type of Linux or UDC incl. license will be shipped to you to prevent a bad supprise.

 

Update: Can i downgrade from IGEL Linux V5 to IGEL Linux V4: Yes and No; devices delivered with IGEL Linux V5 can not be downgraded, a device that was original delivered with Linux V4 and got a upgrade from V4 to V5 can be downgraded via a seperate Firmware package.

 

Please Note: Iam not responsible for the upgrade path’s or how the upgrade is handled, there might be changes in the future but this is based on the information’s i received until today from IGEL. If there are major updates i will blog it here like in the past. If you have seperate questions contact the IGEL Support Team, iam sure they will help you if possible.

 

Cheers

Michael

P.S.: Regarding the new trial/test licenses (OS V2) or trial/test devices contact your Partner or IGEL Sales Rep.

Release: IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2 Version 5.01.100 (Update)

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

IGEL Universal Desktop OS V2
============================
Version 5.01.100
Oct 01 2013

======================
Notes:
======================
IMPORTANT:
Dual monitor configuration for “unsupported hardware” works only if “native
driver support” works properly. It is a prerequisite to assure that the
native driver is really working, as the fallback VESA driver does not provide
any dual monitor configuration. Have a look at Application Launcher’s
About tab->Hardware-Graphics Chipset. If VESA is listed there the native
driver does not work and dual monitor configuration is not functional.

New Firmware Release: IGEL Universal Desktop LX/OS 4.12.100

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

Hello Folks,

yesterday IGEL Technology has released a big new major release:

IGEL Universal Desktop OS

=========================

Version 4.12.100

May 02 2013

 

Notes:

 

IMPORTANT:

Dual monitor configuration for “unsupported hardware” works only if “native

driver support” works properly. It is a prerequisite to assure that the

native driver is really working, as the fallback VESA driver does not provide

any dual monitor configuration. Have a look at Application Launcher’s

About tab->Hardware-Graphics Chipset. If VESA is listed there the native

driver does not work and dual monitor configuration is not functional.

display content corruptions on secondary VGA display after resume

 

 

New features:

 

[RDP]

– RDP RemoteApp: Improved icon handling

– A certificate verification error is shown now in the certificate dialog

during RDP session startup.

 

[ICA]

– Updated Citrix Receiver to version 12.1.6.231670

– Updated Citrix HDX Realtime Media Engine to version 1.2.0-39,

used for webcam redirection in Microsoft Lync Client.

– New high color icons in XenApp/Program Neighborhood

– Citrix XenApp/Program Neighborhood enhancements:

– If a user is logged in, the icons to start a new login window are now hidden.

– If a disconnect session is configured on desktop, start menu, application launcher or

desktop context menu, the logoff session forces a logoff now. The “disconnect” session

can be configured by registry keys:

sessions.pndisconnect0.settings.in_startmenu

sessions.pndisconnect0.settings.in_applaunch

sessions.pndisconnect0.settings.on_desktop

sessions.pndisconnect0.settings.in_pulldown.

– It is now possible to use UPN notation (e.g. “user@domain.com”) in XenApp/PN login

windows. The following applies ONLY when using alternative domain suffixes (for example

if the domain is called “domain.com”, but a user should be able to login with

“user@othername.local”): Due to a bug in the Citrix Receiver it is currently not possible to

use alternative domain suffixes without providing the “real” domain name as well. I.e. the

user name entry field may contain an alterative domain suffix in UPN notation (like “user@alternativename.com”),

but the domain entry field may not be empty in this case. Instead it has to contain the real domain (“domain.com”).

To make this less confusing for the user, it is now possible to lock or even remove the domain entry field in

PN/XenApp login windows. If the domain field is hidden, the first entry in the domain list is used for login.

To use UPN notation with alternative domain suffixes, do the following:

1. In the setup or in UMS go to the page Sessions > ICA > Citrix XenApp/Program Neighborhood > Server

2. Add the real domain name to the “Domains” list. It should be the first entry.

3. (optional) Change the parameter “Handling of domain in login windows” from “normal” to either “locked” or “hidden”.

4. (optional) If you choose “locked”, it is probably useful to deactivate the parameter “Remember username and domain”

on the “Logon” page. This will avoid problems if the last login was done with a domain name that differs

from the real domain name.

 

[Fabulatech] Improved USB remoting mechanism using Fabulatech USB Remote:

– HID devices (Class 03), USB HUBs (Class 04), USB network and communication

controllers (Classes 02, 0a and e0) and VIA VNT-6656 WLAN controller

(VID=160a, PID=3184) are excluded by default, thus such devices

always require an explicit allowing rule.

 

[VMware View]

– New VMware Horizon View Client 2.0.0.

– New support for RDP Multimedia Redirection in Windows 7 RDP sessions.

 

[Quest vWorkspace]

– Updated Quest vWorkspace to version 7.6

 

[Java]

– Updated JRE to version 1.6.0 update 43.

 

[Firefox]

– Updated Firefox to version 17.0.5

For blocked plug-ins it is possible to add exceptions for certain hosts or domains:

In IGEL Setup Registry create new instances of the template browserglobal.app.plugins%.

Hosts and/or domains on which execution of plug-ins is explicitly

allowed or forbidden can be specified there. For any other host the user can choose at

runtime.

 

[Smartcard]

– ICA Local Login window can now handle custom PKCS#11 libraries for smart card logon,

see new setup page Sessions->ICA->ICA Global->Local Logon->Smartcard.

– Active Directory/Kerberos Logon with Smart Card: In IGEL Setup on page

Security->Logon->Active Directory/Kerberos now the new login method “Smart Card”

can be activated to enable Kerberos logon with smart card.

Only certain types of smart cards are supported. The type can be chosen on page

Security->Logon->Active Directory/Kerberos->Smartcard. With parameter

“Smart Card Removal Action” it can be controlled whether the user is logged off

or the thin client is locked if the smart card is removed.

 

[Desktop]

– New parameter for mouse double click distance:

IGEL Setup -> User Interface -> Input -> Mouse

Registry key: windowmanager.wm0.variables.doubleclickdist.

Increase the value, if you have problems

– Enabled multi monitor setup with autodetection of monitor resolutions.

Limitation with VIA VX900 chipsets: display port resolutions

of 2560×1440/2560×1600 can not be detected correctly, if the resolution

of the 2nd monitor is 1920×1080/1920×1200.

– Replaced the clock plugin in the task bar with the datetime plugin,

which is able to show a calendar.

 

[Base System]

– New default USB access control rule to allow HID devices,

if USB access control is enabled. (IGEL Setup -> Devices -> USB access control).

– Added automatic logoff feature: Executes logoff after the main session is closed.

Configuration in IGEL Setup -> Security -> Logon -> Auto Logoff

Registry keys: auth.login.autologoff auth.login.autologoff_cmd .

– There are two new custom commands: The command configured with registry key

auth.login.custom_command_sclogin is executed at the time when a user logged in with

IGEL or Kerberos smart card, auth.login.custom_command_login is executed at the time

when a user logged in with user/password.

– Support for new UMS file transfer types:

– Common Certificate (all purpose)

– SSL Certificate

– Java Certificate

– New Remote Administration of the TC by DHCP tags: It is now possible to configure a FTP

server/path by DHCP tags, from where a “setup.ini” configuration is downloadable. This

feature is enabled by default and should be disabled, if it is not used. Following tags are

used:

ID 161 server name or ip address of the FTP server

ID 162 custom subdirectory: with empty DHCP tag 162 the setup.ini file must be placed

under “igel/ud” directory, if specified the setup.ini file must be placed under

“subdirectory/igel/ud” directory

Authentication: ID 184 username and ID 185 password.

– Updated timezone data to version tzdata-2013b.

 

[Network]

– New driver for Realtek 8168/8111 ethernet chips: Realtek vendor driver version 8.035.00

– New support for EAP-GTC wireless WPA/WPA2 Enterprise authentication.

– New driver support for D-Link Wireless-USB-Adapter DWA-131 HW-Version B1 based on

Realtek RTL8192CU chip.

– New driver support for Atheros ethernet chips.

– Wired 802.1X authentication can be canceled now

– Added ethernet link status monitoring: registry keys:

network.interfaces.ethernet.device0.ifplugd.*

network.interfaces.ethernet.device1.ifplugd.*

To hide messages the registry keys network.interfaces.ethernet.device0.hide_progress

and network.interfaces.ethernet.device1.hide_progress can be used.

– Wireless roaming: only messages are shown, instead of stopping and

starting the complete network interface.

Registry key: network.interfaces.wirelesslan.device0.reconnect_action

To hide messages at all use the registry key

network.interfaces.wirelesslan.device0.hide_progress

– Added new setup parameters to specify a systemwide proxy. This proxy is used by the

ICA/HDX Flash-PluginContainer for Flash-Redirection.

IGEL Setup -> Network -> Proxy

Registry keys: network.proxy.settings.*

In case of Flash-Redirection set the parameter “sys_proxy_type” to manual.

Also fill in the server and port parameters for the specific protocols http, ssl (=https), ftp

and SOCKS type proxies.

Note that the parameter sys_proxy_autoconfig_url can only be used by the local browser

and is not applicable for ICA/Flash-redirected sessions.

Note that the local browser (Firefox) also has proxy settings either for all browser sessions

or specific to each session. If local browser rather use the systemwide proxy,

go to the Registry and set browserglobal.app.conv_proxy_type to systemwide.

 

[Printing]

– Updated ThinPrint Client to version 7.0.54.

– It is now possible to specify CUPS printer names which contain environment variables.

Set “Enable variable substitution in session” on IGEL Setup page

System->Firmware Customization->Environment Variables. These variables are evaluated

when the printer is created (at boot or reconfiguration time). As an example, to insert the

host name specify e.g. ${HOSTNAME}_PRT1.

 

[Hardware]

– New eGalax touch screen support: Choose eGalax touch screen type in

IGEL Setup -> User Interface -> Input -> Touch Screen

 

Fixed bugs:

 

[RDP]

– Fixed sporadic RDP session redirection crashes.

– Fixed session redirection with enabled data compression.

– Fixed RDP Token Redirection.

– Improved implementation of the audio channel (MS-RDPEA).

Audio channel now works flawless with Windows 2008 server.

– Do not show connection message anymore if the server isn’t available.

 

[ICA]

– Citrix Receiver 12.1.6 reconnects properly to sessions that have been started with a

different color depth. This should also fix some problems with the Citrix cshadow program,

when a session should be shadowed from another session running a different color depth.

– Citrix Receiver 12.1.6 fixed crashes when Com Port mapping is used.

– XenApp/Program Neighborhood with passthrough authentication:

Only use short domain name for logon instead of FQDN.

 

[Firefox]

-.Fixed permanent storage of Firefox smart card certificate selections.

– Fixed permanent storage of Java-Applet configurations:

enable registry key java.deployment.save_certificates

– Fixed Firefox certificate installation, when certificate is assigned by UMS file transfer.

– Autohide function of the toolbars (menu/navigation) can now be controlled by registry keys:

Globally by registry key: browserglobal.app.browser_fullscreen_autohide or

Session-wise by registry key: sessions.browser0.app.browser_fullscreen_autohide

When hiding the tabs-bar (registry key sessions.browser0.app. tabs_bar_hidden)

Ctrl-Left clicks in the browser content window (which would open a new tab) are now

disabled, because displaying tabs without tabs-bar would cause display freezes.

 

[2X Client]

– Window Manager hotkeys can be used now with 2X sessions.

 

[Media Player]

– Totem media player: Fixed repeating mode.

 

[Smartcard]

– IGEL smartcard: characters & < > [ ] in settings on smartcard are now taken over correctly.

during video playback on VIA graphics chips.

– New registry key “sessions.mixer0.grundig_config” to force alsa configuration

for grundig dictation devices.

– In IGEL Setup on page ICA->ICA Global->Keyboard the hotkey configuration now

is only active when “Keyboard Mapping File” is set to “linux”, which is needed

for the hotkeys to work.

– Client VNC application is not allowed anymore to darken the screen and

to forbid input of target VNC server.
