  • Mozilla Thunderbird 68.0

    De Mozilla Foundation heeft versie 68.0 van Thunderbird uitgebracht.
    Mozilla Thunderbird is een opensourceclient voor e-mail en
    nieuwsgroepen, met features als ondersteuning voor verschillende mail-
    en newsaccounts, een spamfilter, spellingscontrole en een aanpasbaar
    uiterlijk. In Thunderbird wordt zelden nog nieuwe functionaliteit
    toegevoegd.

    In versie 68 zien we voor het eerste een 64-bitversie
    voor Windows. Deze is overigens niet over de 43-bitversie te
    installeren, het programma zal opnieuw geconfigureerd moeten worden. In
    een volgende update zal een migratie echter wel mogelijk zijn. Verder
    kan het via policies binnen bedrijfsomgevingen worden beheerd, kunnen
    filters nu periodiek worden gestart en kunnen meerdere mappen
    tegelijkertijd als ‘gelezen’ worden gemarkeerd. Het complete changelog
    voor deze uitgave ziet er als volgt uit:

    The VMware Horizon 7 version 7.9 release includes many new features and enhancements to Horizon Connection Server and Horizon Agent including continuing to build on the feature parity of Horizon Console, the HTML5-based web console that will eventually replace Horizon Administrator.

    Horizon Connection Server On-Premises

      There are several enhancements to Horizon Console. These include:
      • Add, edit, or remove an instant-clone domain administrator.
      • View the number of published desktop sessions for farms or registered machines.
      • Configure event reporting and monitor events.
      • Monitor published desktop and application sessions.

      • The Horizon Console user interface contains updated icons.
      • View the image, pending image, and task columns for an RDS host for a farm.
      • Configure the multi-session mode feature for published applications.
      • Configure global settings that affect client sessions and connections and set global security settings for client sessions and connections in Horizon Console.
      • Select whether and when to refresh the OS disks when creating an instant-clone desktop pool.
      • Determine whether to allow ESXi hosts to reclaim unused disk space on instant clones that are created in space-efficient disk format when creating an instant-clone desktop pool. The space reclamation feature reduces the total storage space required for instant clone desktops.
      • Publish and launch Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications.
      • Change or remove the icon of a published application.
    • Horizon Administrator
      • You can use Horizon Administrator to configure additional options such as “Always”, “Log to file on error (default)”, and “Never” to enable event log messages to be generated and stored in Syslog format in log files. These options are not available in Horizon Console.
    • Cloud Pod Architecture
      • The Home Site Override tab is separated from the Users and Groups tab in Horizon Console. To configure a home site override in Horizon Console in Horizon 7 version 7.9, select Inventory > Global Entitlements, select the name of the global entitlement to associate with the home site, and click the Home Site Override tab.
      • You can use the Search Sessions feature in Horizon Console to view desktop and application sessions across the pod federation.
    • Published Desktops and Applications
      • You can publish and launch Universal Windows Platform (UWP) applications.
    • Virtual Desktops
      • When creating an instant clone, you can select whether and when to refresh the OS disks.
      • When creating an instant clone, you can determine whether to allow ESXi hosts to reclaim unused disk space on instant clones that are created in space-efficient disk format. The space reclamation feature reduces the total storage space required for instant clone desktops.
