The upgrade to 1.0 brings along the following new features for those of you upgrading

  • CA encryption (SecureICA) and SSL, to secure communications between user devices and XenApp and XenDesktop
  • Windows Extended keyboard, including keys such as Ctrl, Alt, and Delete

cant wait to try this out!

Citrix receiver for playbook has been a LIFE SAVER!


Yeah I'll give this one a try as well... Most of my tools are under citrix, haha...


Good news. I'm telling you, don't sleep on RIMs stock. It will make a comeback.


Great start but I was just trying it out and I couldnt find a way to use the function keys (f1, f2, etc) and also when i try to remote desktop to my work pc via rd as a published app, i couldnt resize the screen in order to get to the password field.


cool ! but anyone can show some tutorial how to connect ur playbook to your pc via citrix ?


That's very good news.So many compnies already allowed iPad to use Citrix.Now playbook users can also connect to their office network....Go Go RIM 2012 is all yours..Release many enterprise apps along with OS 2.0.


This has made my PB infinitely more useful. I can now connect to my firm's network with my PB, which I love. Well done, Citrix.


Citrix for the PB is awesome! So much better than the one on the iPad and Android with respect to being able to multitask between different citrix applications!


this is huge for enterprise. finally I can connect to my company's network remotely.


They fixed whatever was keeping the previous version from letting me into my account with the government. So happy that I can finally use the Playbook for real work!


Works nicely! A few tweaks I hope they fix,but definitely usuable


The update works with my companies Citrix, Awesome!


Would this mean that GOTOMYPC might not be too far away??


Sweet, now i'll be able to access my college's network :)


This is great. Can't wait to try this out at work. Now I can whip my playbook out of my coat, check on labs and chart in patients' rooms. Take that ipad (cause that ain't fittin in any white coat, for sure).


Nice that Citrix came through for Rim/PB !! The PB fits my scrub pant pockets, coat pocket or my insulated lunch bag-to-go... lol


Best part is you can tether and not need wifi!!!


Still only works with Enterprise CAG, what happened to Standard being supported in the 1.0 release? Guess they had to cut features to release it before the end of the year.
