VMware Horizon View 5.2 Feature Pack 2

VMware just released Feature Pack 2 for VMware Horizon View 5.2. VMware is trying to release Feature Packs on a quarterly basis to bring new innovations to their customers quicker then the annual major releases. I think the Real-Time Audio-Video component is a great new add to the line-up.

What's New in This Release

VMware Horizon View 5.2 Feature Pack 2 includes the following new features:
  • Flash URL Redirection - Customers can now use Adobe Media Server and multicast to deliver live video events in a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment. To deliver multicast live video streams within a VDI environment, the media stream should be sent directly from the media source to the endpoints, bypassing the virtual desktops. The Flash URL Redirection feature supports this capability by intercepting and redirecting the ShockWave Flash (SWF) file from the virtual desktop to the client endpoint.

  • Unity Touch improvements - You can now add a favorite application or file from a list of search results, and you can now use the Unity Touch sidebar to minimize a running application's window. Requires users to connect to their desktops from VMware Horizon View Client for iOS 2.1 or later, or VMware Horizon View Client for Android 2.1 or later.
