What does the new MDOP 2013 R2 offer?

  • Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) 5.0 SP2 App-V makes it easier for IT departments to deploy applications across a fleet of devices by allowing anywhere access to virtualized applications on any authorized PC without requiring that the application be installed directly on said machine. App-V 5.0 SP2 builds on this, offering an even more powerful experience through several updates, including support for virtualization of Office 2013 under volume licensing, enhanced right click functionality (shell extensions) for virtualized applications and simplifications to the overall application virtualization process.
  • User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) 2.0 UE-V is an on premise solution that captures and centralizes application and Windows settings for the user. This enables users to change devices without reconfiguring their applications or settings. Furthermore, UE-V offers a simple and versatile way for IT Pros to set parameters around which applications should have their settings roam, and then easily deploy those boundaries across the organization. UE-V 2.0 continues to deliver on this focus on control, personalization and versatility with several updates, including support for Windows 8.1 and the ability to roam user settings for Windows Store apps. We have also made updates to our settings synchronization engine, enhancing the user experience across virtualized desktops and offline scenarios. Additionally with the new Company Settings Center UI, we have given users optional control of how their own settings roam.

In addition to these key feature updates, MDOP 2013 R2 offers Windows 8.1 compatibility for Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM) 4.0 SP2, Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT) 8.1, and Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) 2.0 SP1, which also offers multi-language support.

Finally I would also like to announce the availability of App-V 4.6 SP3. This release provides support for Windows 8.1 for customers as they make the transition to App-V 5.0 SP2.
