There's a lot of talk floating around that Citrix is going to announce the features that will be included in MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0 Feature Release 1 at iForum in a few weeks.
Feature Release 1 is codenamed "Colorado" and should be released to the public in the first half of 2005. As of now, Tony Marzulli (Citrix's VP of Marketing) is scheduled to give the technical keynote on day two of iForum. If Citrix keeps with their past patterns, Marzulli will probably wow the audience by demonstrating (with the help of Brian Nason) some of the new features.
It doesn't appear that FR-1 / Colorado will have any major changes, but some of the features expected include:
- Application performance management. (a la Aurema, etc.)
- Application sandboxing. (Side by side DLL support, etc.)
- A major printing fix. (A driverless solution perhaps?)
- A command-line change farm utility.
