About OVD Enterprise 3.3

We are excited to announce the latest major release of Inuvika OVD Enterprise 3.3.0, which includes several new features and enhancements.

What's new

This release includes a variety of enhancements and features that make our software more secure, easier to use, and more customizable with more control over the look and feel of the OVD environment. We hope our customers and their end-users will enjoy these new features and look forward to continuing to improve our software in the future.

For more details, please refer to the changelog at the bottom of the page.

Revisión de la Marca Personalizada

We have added the ability for OVD Administrators to customize the session wallpaper and brand the OVD client applications with their company logo.

With this feature, Administrators can now define a custom wallpaper that appears when users log in to their session. This can be an image of their choosing, such as a company logo, a promotional graphic, or any other image that they would like to use.

In addition to the wallpaper, Administrators can also add their company logo, custom color and title to replace all Inuvika visuals. This helps to create a more cohesive user experience and reinforces the brand identity of the company.

The process of setting up the wallpaper and branding is simple and straightforward. Administrators can access the settings from the Administration Console and upload the desired images, choose a color, title, and allow dark mode where supported.

Windows 10/11 Application Servers

OVD Enterprise 3.3 introduces the ability to use Windows 10/11 Workstations as an Application Server. This new feature expands the deployment options for our customers and provides more flexibility in setting up their OVD environments with a VDI-like solution when needed.

Control de versiones de clientes de escritorio y móviles

We have implemented a feature that prevents the session from starting when the Enterprise Desktop Client or Enterprise Mobile Client version is lower than the authorized version setting. This feature helps ensure that the system is secure and up-to-date.

Emergency Maintenance Mode for Application Servers

Another great addition is the ability that allows administrators to disconnect (sign out) all running sessions on a particular server in maintenance mode. This feature is useful for performing emergency maintenance tasks. Users will be redirected to another application server (if available) when they sign in again.

Linux Application Server Multi-Monitor Support

We have also added support for multi-monitor on Linux Application Servers, making it easier for linux based users to work with multiple displays.

RHEL 8 is now supported

We now support RHEL 8, while retaining compatibility with RHEL 7.

Linux Application Servers can now be Domain Joined

OVD now supports the ability to use Linux Application Servers that have been joined to an Active Directory Domain. This allows users to be able to be authenticated and logged in with a 'real' domain user on both Windows and Linux application servers at the same time in "Full Active Directory Mode"

Web Access now presented inside the Administration Console

The Web Access role can now be administered directly from the Admin UI. This will allow Administrators to monitor the server directly, and check service status.

Improvements to Redirected Printers

We have made some enhancements to the OVD Virtual Printer which is used to automatically redirect local and network printers from the client machine. Now, single-sided printing is set as the default mode. Additionally, two-sided printing is supported on both Long and Short sides.

Enteprise Desktop Client Magic Toolbar

In version 3.2.0, a magic toolbar was introduced which can be accessed through a key combination. This tool allows users to switch between input modes, toggle full-screen/windowed mode, and check session statistics for audio and bandwidth consumption. Now, this toolbar is always visible at the top of the screen in a floating pull-down menu similar to the OVD Web Access menu. This change makes it much more convenient for users to access the toolbar and make in-session changes and perform diagnostics.

End of support notice

Starting with our upcoming releases, we will be phasing out support for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver), CentOS 7.x, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7. These platforms have either already reached or are imminently approaching their respective End of Life dates.

Please note that OVD 3.3.0 will be the final version to offer support for these operating systems. We recommend transitioning to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish) or Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 8 as soon as possible to benefit from future OVD versions.
