flexVDI Server Software Updates

These are the latest updates on flexVDI Server Software:

flexVDI Manager 3.0.1

Changes since v3.0.0:

  • Fixed USB redirection of USB 3.0 devices. This requires qemu v2.9 and flexvdi-guest-tools 3.0.1.
  • Always assign a new desktop when the first operation of a Desktop Policy is “destroy 0 minutes after disconnection”. In this case, even if a desktop is not immediately destroyed, the next connection of the same or other user will always result in the creation of a new desktop. This is most useful in public kiosk installations.
  • Improve the log file format.

Hypervisor packages

flexvdi-agent 3.0.2

Changes since v3.0.1:

  • Fix migration with newer versions of libvirt, where the qemu+libssh2 transport is not enabled anymore.
  • Improve the log file format.

Changes since v3.0.0:

  • Fixed generating multipath partition device name.

flexvdi-config 3.0.2

Changes since v3.0.0

  • Depend on ntpd service instead of ntpdate, which could fail if no connection to Internet is available.

flexvdi-guest-tools 3.0.1

Changes since v3.0.0

  • Fixed reading credentials with foreign UTF-8 characters.
  • Updated virtio drivers for Windows.
  • USB3 hub Windows driver included.
  • Included missing udev rules for Linux.

ocfs2-tools and o2fs2-tools-o2cb 1.8.5-2

Changes since v1.8.5-1:

  • Relaxed the dependency with the network service, so that the cluster is not restarted when the network is restarted, causing the sudden death of all VMs with a disk image in an OCFS2 volume.

spice-server-flexvdi 0.12.8-3

Changes since v0.12.8-2:

  • Fix resizing guest resolution in Linux guests.

qemu-kvm-flexvdi 2.9.0-16

qemu updated from 2.6.0 to 2.9.0, improves compatibility with redirected USB 3.0 devices.

We’ve just released version 2.2.52 of flexVDIClient for windows

We have released flexVDI 2.2.52 for windows, which includes the following enhancements and fixes:

  • Stores the terminal ID in the config file, so that it will not change, and make our platform it is a new terminal (Windows 10 sometimes changes network MACs, which resulted in different terminal ids).
  • Adds a new icon in the program group called “flexVDI app Client”, that behaves as an application, instead of as a desktop, when user enters Alt+Tab: Alt+Tab changes the application in the local desktop.
  • In login screen, focus password field when username is pre-filled.
  • flexVDI now keeps in the same screen when it is maximized.

As always, the latest installer can be downloaded from flexvdi.com

ChangeLog of flexVDI Client 2.2.11 for Linux and Live USB

The 2.2.11 release of the flexVDI client for Linux and Live USB includes several stability and performance improvements.

In particular, the WebSocket library NoPoll has been updated to version 0.4.3, reducing its network overhead considerably. In some scenarios, this may result in firewalls or proxy servers dropping connections due to inactivity. For instance, Nginx drops WebSocket connections after 60 seconds of inactivity. This problem can be easily solved setting the KeepAlive property of flexVDI Gateway. It will send a ping message every certain number of seconds, avoiding this kind of disconnections.
