Today App-V 5.0 Beta is released. The most interesting new functions are:
- Flexible virtualization choices let virtual applications work more like traditionally installed applications, allowing local and virtual applications to communicate and enabling control of which virtual applications can share environments.
- There’s no dedicated drive letter required, and no 4 gigabyte maximum package size. It’s easy for IT to work with and take action on App-V diagnostic information because App-V logs Windows events instead of separate log files.
- Easy and efficient to use in VDI environments, allowing IT to make the best use of expensive disk resources without changing the way they get their jobs done.
- Web-based management makes it easy for busy IT professionals to get their work done while away from their desk.
- Rich PowerShell scripting allows IT to automate repetitive tasks and to integrate App-V with existing processes.
Let’s take a look at the new features.
