- Azure Managed Disks to be used automatically by MCS starting with this controller.
- Federated Authentications Services now stores info in an embedded database versus the registry.
- Controller improvements to double-hop scenarios (launching apps in a published desktop). If the app is available in the desktop it will launch it as local vs a new session. Read "Session Sharing Between a Published Desktop and a Published App Made Easy" (Citrix Blogs) for more information including making this work on previous versions.
- Content redirection blacklist supported on VDA. Also, a new controller policy to prevent failback to server render.
