“Sessions->Horizon View Client->Horizon View Client Sessions->
(Session Name)-> Connection settings”
– Added proxy connection settings supporting direct connection,
systemwide proxy or a session specific proxy

key: “rdp.winconnect.error-message-timeout”.
– Added inverted cursor color configuration at
“Sessions->RDP->RDP Global->Options->Inverted cursor color” or registry key

– Updated Citrix Receiver to version
– Added alternative domain suffix login to XenApp/Program Neighborhood.
“user@alternativedomain” can be used now.
Hint: If you use alternative domain suffixes you should:
1) Clear the domain list at setup page
“Sessions -> ICA -> Citrix XenApp/Program Neighborhood -> Server”
2) Set “Handling of domain in login window” to “hidden”.
– Improved handling of seamless application windows (e.g. Delphi
applications) that were minimized when moved.
– Improved Citrix XenApp/Program Neighbourhood session configuration
– Added new filter for desktop placement of Citrix XenApp applications.
– Improved “Overwrite local Start Menu and desktop setting with server
setting” by separting parameter for start menu and desktop.
– Added autostart of Program Neighboorhood provided sessions. The list of
autostarted applications can be defined at: “Sessions->ICA->Citrix
XenApp/Program Neighborhood->Logon”.
The autostart mechanism does not care about automatically reconnected
applications. To avoid this, the number of allowed running sessions
can be limited at server side.
– Updated Citrix HDX Realtime Optimization Pack to version 1.4.0.
– Added additional settings for protocol encryption
– At registry key “ica.module.encryption” you can disable encryption for
all ICA sessions
– At “Sessions->ICA->ICA Sessions-><session name>->Options->Encryption
Level” set to “None” to disable encryption for individual ICA sessions.

If one satellite in the UMD cluster is not available a notification window
is displayed to start an emergency setup or to shut down the UMD cluster.
The availability timeout can be set with the registry key
– Added registry key “x.dmx.syncbatch” to stabilize mouse behaviour. The value
sets up the timeout (in ms) until flushing the event queue. A value of ‘-1’
sets the best practice value depending on the used device. Valid entries
are ‘-1’ and 0 – 200.
Lower values may decrease performance.
