Browsium Catalyst 2.0 now available – supports Windows 8

Posted by: Browsium Tags: , , Posted date:


As Windows 8 matures, more and more enterprises are making plans to deploy Microsoft’s latest OS. Some are planning a complete migration, while others are trying to accommodate Windows 8 as it rolls into the organization on laptops and tablets purchased by executives.

At Browsium, we’ve responded to these needs with upgrades to both Ion and Catalyst. Last month we released Ion 3.2 with support for Windows 8 (plus a number of additional features). Today we’re releasing Catalyst 2.0 with an identical mission.

What’s New in Catalyst 2.0

Catalyst 2.0 has few visible changes, but a variety of important feature enhancements to support key deployment scenarios. Here is a brief list:

  • Support for Windows 8.1 with IE11, and IE11 on Windows 7
  • Support for bi-directional redirection of URLs between native Internet Explorer, Chrome, and Firefox and virtual IE using Citrix XenApp
  • Support for bi-directional redirection of URLs between native Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox and virtual IE using VMware ThinApp
  • New command-line switch displays active Catalyst configuration via the command “Controller /WhichConfig”
  • Integrated setup allows choice of license key or 30-day evaluation during installation of Catalyst Client

Complete details of “what’s new” in Catalyst 2.0 can be found in the Release Notes. We highly recommend reading them before installing.
