New Remote Desktop app for macOS available in the App Store

Terminal Services team blog - Tue, 11/28/2017 - 18:00

This post is authored by Eva Seydl, Program Manager, Remote Desktop Services.

It is time to hit refresh on the Remote Desktop (RD) experience for macOS. Download the next generation application in the App Store today to enjoy the new UI design, improvements in the look and feel of managing your connections, and new functionalities available in a remote session.

Use new device redirections in the remote session

When connecting to a PC or Server remotely you can redirect printers today into a remote session. With the new app the following additional devices can be enabled:

  • Redirect your local microphone
  • Redirect smart cards

Please note that you can’t use a redirected smart card to sign into your remote PC. The redirected smart card isn’t available until after you sign in.

Use macOS shortcuts in a remote session

You can now use the MacOS keyboard shortcuts to cut, copy, and paste in a remote session.

Leverage the new UI to manage and use multiple saved connections

Based on a lot of feedback from customers trying to manage a high number of connections in the previous release, we’ve made the following UI improvements:

  • Assign desktop connections to custom groups.
  • Easily identify active connections in the connection center.
  • Manage a single list of user accounts in the preferences of the app.
  • Store multiple entries of the same username with different passwords.
How to migrate connection data from Microsoft Remote Desktop 8.0?

Verify you have the latest version 8.0.43 installed to migrate your connection data.Next look for Microsoft Remote Desktop in the App Store to download the new application on your Mac running OS X Yosemite or higher. Once installed you can skip the first run experience. In the menu click connections and choose the option to import connections from the other app. Now you are set to use the new app.

Note: friendly names for the connections are not ported to the new app.

How to provide feedback?

Click Help > Recommend New Features in the apps menu to open the UserVoice forum where you can suggest new ideas. Use the opportunity to rate the app in the store.

!Organizer 2.28 reviewed

The Iconbar - Fri, 11/24/2017 - 07:48
!Organizer 2.28 was released at the London Show.

The software comes as a single zip file and there are instructions on how to install or upgrade. When you first run the software, you will be asked about how you would like to update. The default is Y for each. I found I had to save the default choices back at the end.

The headline feature in this release is the rewrite on the planner mode. This is really slick and will display as many weeks forward as it can comfortably display. So on my 1920x1200 screen, I can see the next 14 weeks in a very readable vertical format. If you have a higher resolution you will get less weeks - the software adjusts to fit what makes sense for your display size. I have always been a 'two weeks display mode' user up until now but I am now experimenting with this display.

There are also some nice-to-have features in the software including a better print dialog box and the !Organizer window can be moved or resized by dragging any corner.

The release note says that there have been under the hood changes to improve the software and speed it up. It certainly feels very smooth in operation on my Titantium. Tab and backtab (tab with shift key pressed) allow you to cycle onto the next or last week. If you are in mutli-week modes it moves forward/backward just one week - it does not jump 14 weeks forward in my full display!

The website itself could do with a little TLC. The !Organizer Version History is very out of date and could probably just go.

!Organizer are also still asking for more suggestions on features for the next release.

Overall I am really pleased with the new features in 2.28 and I recommend it as an upgrade to all existing users (and well worth a look if are not using it).

!Organizer can be purchased from the website with the usual discounts for existing customers.

XenApp and XenDesktop Service リソースロケーションの電源管理

Citrix employee blogs - Thu, 11/23/2017 - 01:00

本ブログは 2017 年 3 月に Citrix 本社のソフトウェアエンジニア Joseph Anderson が執筆したブログ「Power Management of a XenApp & XenDesktop Service Resource Location」を日本語訳(意訳含む)したものです。


  • Citrix Cloud の XenApp and XenDesktop Service で利用可能な電源管理機能として、Citrix Studio からの電源管理と、Smart Scale による電源管理の2つがあることを理解します。


クラウドの素晴らしい点は、必要な時に必要なだけサービスを利用でき、利用した分だけ料金を支払えば良い点です。 Microsoft Azure のようなパブリッククラウドの場合、実行中のリソースに対してのみ料金が請求されます。電源管理計画により、ユーザーはクラウドリソースの使用を適切に削減し、コスト削減を達成できます。この記事では、Citrix Cloud …
