Citrix CCU license Renewal

I have 20 Citrix concurent user license. Does anyone know the benifits of purchasing a renewal for these? Citrix states that renewing your license will allow the user to have access to the latest software. That doesnt make sense to me. Anyone can download the latest citrix client.

Not the latest CLIENT software, the latest SERVER software.

I see. So is there any benefit to renewing client licenses?

XenApp is licensed per concurrent user.  If you don't renew you don't get to use any new versions of XenApp that are released in your subscription period.

no, Citrix no longer licenses XenApp by the server, only by CCU.  With 20 CCU licenses you could have 20 XenApp servers if you wanted or 2,000.  But the 21st concurrent user who tries to connect will get a msg saying to contact you so you can buy more CCU licenses.
