Turbo Support for Windows 10 October 2018 Update Now Available

Turbo is pleased to announce immediate availability of Turbo support for Windows 10 October 2018 Update.

All Turbo products – including Turbo VM, Turbo Client, Turbo Server, and Turbo Studio – have been updated for compatibility and application migration capability. The version number for these updates is 18.10.

This update is required for compatibility with Windows 10 October 2018 Update (Build 1809). We strongly recommend this update for all users on the latest version of Windows 10.

Turbo Client and Turbo VM will automatically update if auto updates are enabled.

The latest Turbo Client and VM are also available for download at turbo.net/download.

Turbo Studio 18.10 is available for download at turbo.net/studio/download.

Turbo Server 18.10 is available for download at: turbo.net/server/download.

Keep legacy apps running on Windows 10 with Turbo VM

With the increasing pace of Windows 10 updates, including Semi-Annual Channel updates every 6 months and Microsoft support limited to 18-month servicing periods for most releases, it is more important than ever to isolate legacy applications from the underlying operating system.

Turbo VM provides an intermediation layer that automatically mitigates incompatibilities introduced in new versions of Windows. This update continues Turbo’s 10+ year record of maintaining full application compatibility for our enterprise clients.

We hope you enjoy the latest updates to Turbo.

Citrix Receiver Desktop Now in the Citrix Sandbox

In a previous article we introduced the Citrix Sandbox. At that time, the Citrix Sandbox contained the Citrix Receiver Web client, which runs the Receiver plugin within a browser.

We are happy to announce that the standalone Citrix Receiver is now also available in the Citrix Sandbox.

What is the Citrix Sandbox?

The Citrix Sandbox channel on Turbo.net lets you instantly run any version of Citrix Receiver.

Turbo allows multiple versions of Receiver to run side-by-side on the same desktop. This makes testing new versions of Receiver or deploying old versions to access legacy XenApp servers extremely easy.

New versions of Receiver are automatically added as they are released. The Turbo.net Citrix Sandbox works with all desktop and server versions of Windows. Turbo applications can be deployed to individual desktops and teams.
