VMware just released the Version 3.1.1, a new maintenance release of VMware View. You’ll find the details on the VMware View web site.
VMware View already came with USB redirection in his early stages but now with View 3.1, released last week it becomes more flexible. By default HID (Human interface devices) are filtered out because it wouldn’t be good to have the local keyboard, mouse or other device which is needed local, redirected to the virtual desktop session.
Great blog post on upgrading VMware View to version 3.1 over at VMGuru.nl. Eric Scholten who is a Solution Architect writes about his experience when updating their View broker. He also talks about the improvements of the new version.
There is a new beta version of the View Open Client available for download at the Google Code community. One of the new features is smart card support. To allow that you’ve to copy your PKCS#11 modules in /usr/lib/vmware/view/pkcs11 and use Rdesktop version 1.5.0 as minimum. A detailed description can be found in the readme.txt file within the download package.
