Good day,

Today Dell has released version 2.1 of the vWorkspace Connector for Android. This release marks a major step up in performance and functionality.

First and foremost is the addition of RemoteFX support which will provide the benefits of Microsoft's RemoteFX codec for RDP connections made with the Android Connector.

Allow your users to make connections to vWorkspace enabled virtual desktops running Windows or Linux to securely access corporate applications and data.

The use cases are endless, with one of the chief uses being users bringing their own Android devices into the office. Enable BYOD, keep the data on your servers, and allow anywhere-anytime access.

Listed below are the new features included in this release.

RemoteFX Support

This release of the vWorkspace Connector for Android upgrades its support for Microsoft's Remote Desktop Protocol by adding the RemoteFX codec to its toolset. Dell vWorkspace users can now benefit from the advances in the RDP protocol introduced with version 7.0, such as its tile-based transform and entropy coding. This improvement is the first step in providing support for the latest features of RDP 8.0.

URL Schemes

The Connector for Android has added the following URL schemes to allow for easier configuration of the connector. Simply provide a URL path to a vWorkspace config.xml to your end users prefixed with one of the schemes below.

vw - for HTTP connections

vws - for HTTPS connections

vwf - for files local to the device
