  • Curious Case FP2

    June 6, 2013

    Receiver, XenApp 6.5

    At Synergy 2013, Citrix announced XenApp 6.5 FP2, among other things.

    I have been looking at this announcement with a kind of special interest, my first curious case, which you can read here.

    And what did I see in the presentation?



    What does Citrix mean by this? “Some customers have reported issues in Client Drive Mapping related performance, and this is vastly improved in FP2.”

    Way to go, Citrix! But wait a minute… Citrix just turned a bugfix into a feature…what’s up with that?

    In the end, let us all hope that we can finally resolve the issue at stake here. It’s been too long already.

    One Response to “Curious Case FP2”

    1. Kenny Baldwin Says:

      While agree that it seems like Citrix simply called a bug fix a feature enhancement, but coming from the Global Escalation Team, I can also understand why they’d do this from an LCM and product dev perspective.

      Consumers should understand that not every bug fix is a simple code change, and some fixes that originate in support, and are resolved by LCM, and eventually integrated as part the next major release. This ‘feature’ is an example of one such bug that probably required a complex code change to the ICA transport drivers. This ‘fix’ was then taken by the product team as an enhancement, by which the feature’s product owners inherit and enhance the changes from an architectural perspective.

      In any case, I look forward to the release, and will definitely be putting XA 6.5 FP2 to plenty of use! I just hope they included these changes in XenDesktop 7! 🙂
