What's New with VMware Horizon 7 Version 7.6

2018 has certainly been a busy year for the EUC team over at VMware.  It is good to see that VMware is still investing heavily into VDI.  As we round out the month of September, we've reached yet a third release for VMware Horizon.  Early in the year, VMware released version 7.4 of Horizon and that was closely followed by a 7.5 release in May.  It didn't take the virtualization giant long to release version 7.6 earlier this month, bringing with it a host of improvements.

Horizon 7 version 7.6 includes the following new features:
  • Support for vSphere 6.5 U2
  • vMotion support for vGPU-enabled virtual desktops
  • Additional features in Horizon 7 on VMware Cloud on AWS
  • New functionality in Horizon Client 4.9
  • New Horizon Cloud Connector: you can use VMware Horizon 7 Cloud Connector to manage subscription licenses to a Horizon Cloud node hosted on the VMware Horizon Cloud Service. A subscription license removes the need to keep, retrieve, or manually enter a license key for product activation.
  • New Blast Extreme functionality, including adaptive transport with IPv6
  • HTML5 Multimedia Redirection improvements to allow Live Streaming
  • Geolocation redirection: use it to redirect geolocation information from Windows client devices to remote desktops and published applications.
  • Support for new GPU: NVIDIA GPU cards V100 and P100 and AMD V340
  • Skype for Business feature updates
If you plan on upgrading your environment, be sure to read the Horizon 7 Upgrades resource for instructions.  And check out the official Horizon 7 Release Notes.
