Update to Patching Citrix Receiver in Patch for Windows

Version 4

    Overview

     

    We are changing how we handle patching for Citrix Receiver to better match up with Citrix's lifecycle process. The changes we are making are:

     

    Versions less than 4.9: Systems running versions of Citrix Receiver prior to version 4.9 will detect as previously, with the newest patch being offered updating the software to version 4.9 which is the Long Term Service Release (LTSR) of Citrix Receiver.

     

    Version 4.9: As this is the LTSR release it will have any Cumulative Updates marked as applicable for it, but it will not have the update to version 4.10 marked as applicable. If you want to upgrade to 4.10 from 4.9, 4.10 will be available as a Software Distribution as a separate branch, similar to how major version updates are handled currently of Java Runtime Environment.

     

    Due to the fact that Citrix only provides links for token based downloads of previous versions of Citrix Receiver we are unable to automatically download the files for the LTSR updates. The patches will need to be manually downloaded and added to the patch repository as detailed in the following document: How To: Supply and Deploy Patches That Can Not Be Downloaded

     

    For Citrix Receiver 4.9, the latest version can be found here: https://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-receiver/windows-ltsr/receiver-for-windows-ltsr_4_9_1000.html

    Version 4.10: As this is the current release, and the start of a new branch, it will have updates marked as applicable as they are released up to the point of the next LTSR release of Citrix Receiver. At this point a new branch will be created, with versions between 4.10 and the next LTSR being offered updates to the LTSR version.
