The biggest difference is policy implementation. In XA5, policies are managed in the XA Advanced configuration console. In XA6, policies are managed through GPOs, or the XA6 'Full Armour' policy engine. XenApp 6 only runs on 2008 R2, where XA5 runs on anything but. Other than that, they're pretty much the same.
