List of available Hotfixes 2012-02-20

I was reading through all the hotfixes available for XenApp 6.5, to decide what to add to my new lab environment.

I compiled this quick reference to get access to all important information about the available hofixes and the problems they will solve.

Conclusion:
Don't publish all of the listed updates !

I recommend installing the Hotfixes GPMx150WX64002 and GPMx150WX64001by default, you don't like loose any configured polices.

If you like to publish "Additional Communications Software" like Citrix GoToMeeting, Skype, Adobe Connect roll out XA650W2K8R2X64002 by default.

hemroid,

A frequent form of feedback is users is to vote Yes or No (near the bottom of the article) as to whether the user found the article helpful or not.  I'm sure when most users find a helpful article they don't even know or remember to give it a Yes vote for encouraging the author (each Yes also gives 50 points, and every 10 net Yes votes gives and additional 500 points to the author).  We Page Editors track Yes votes and No votes, as I believe EE also does.
