Horizon (with View) 6.0.1 is downloadable now

Did we outscoop Eric “Scoop” Sloof from NTPro.nl? I hope we did with this:

I was just browsing the VMware download site for something Horizon View related when I noticed that Horizon (with View) 6.0.1 is out.

The download date on the item is 2014/09/09.

VMware Horizon 6.0.1 with View is a maintenance release that resolves known issues to improve the functionality and performance of Hosted Apps and RDS desktops. In addition, this release provides the following enhancements:

  • System tray redirection for Hosted Apps
    System tray redirection allows users of Hosted Apps to display, and interact with, the application icons and tooltips in the notification areas on their client devices. This function is supported on Windows and Mac OS X clients.
  • USB 3.0 support
    Horizon 6.0.1 with View, together with Horizon Client 3.1, supports USB 3.0 devices plugged into USB 3.0 ports. USB 3.0 devices are supported only with a single stream. Because multiple stream support is not implemented in this release, USB device performance is not enhanced.
  • Expanded virtual printing support
    Virtual printing is supported on these additional remote desktops and applications:

    • Hosted Apps
    • Hosted Apps that are launched from Horizon Client inside remote desktops (nested sessions)
    • RDS desktops (where the RDS hosts are virtual machines)
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 desktops

    This feature is supported on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux clients.

  • Expanded location-based printing support
    Location-based printing is supported on these additional remote desktops and applications:

    • Hosted Apps
    • Hosted Apps that are launched from Horizon Client inside remote desktops (nested sessions)
    • RDS desktops (where the RDS hosts are virtual machines)
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 desktops

    This feature is supported on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and mobile clients.

  • Location-based printing DLL files bundled with View ADM files
    The DLL files used to set up group policy settings for location-based printing are now bundled with all View ADM files in a single View GPO Bundle file, VMware-Horizon-View-Extras-Bundle-x.x.x-yyyyyyy.zip. The zip file is available on the Horizon 6.0.1 (with View) download page. Previously, location-based printing DLL files were installed on View Connection Server.
  • HTML Access on Windows 8/8.1
    HTML Access is fully supported on Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 remote desktops.
    For information about HTML Access features, see the HTML Access release notes andUsing HTML Access guide, available on the VMware Horizon Clients Documentation page.

For information about the issues that are resolved in this release of View, see Resolved Issues.
