Centralised Client Updates
Software Updates for the ThinKiosk client now be automaticity deployed and installed from the ThinKiosk broker. By selecting a client version and assigning it to your ThinKiosk profile, you client device will always remain up to date.
- Profile Clean-up
- ThinScale Connector
- Password changes
- Improved Performance
- Redesigned client / broker communications
ThinKiosk can now remove any unused profiles that may be still be present on the client device.
The ThinScale connector provides resource enumeration from Citrix StoreFront and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services brokers. The new connector replaces the “receiver tab” aggregating all remote and local resources to a single pane on the ThinKiosk ‘Applications Tab’.
Users now have the ability to change their Active Directory password when leveraging the ThinScale connector.
With various redesigns and code optimisations, the ThinKiosk client now starts up to 40% faster than previous versions.
Redesigned client / broker communications
Communication between the ThinKiosk client and broker has been redesigned allowing clients to be management even when not logged in.
