Microsoft made available the MED-V 2.0 public beta. Here’s what’s new in this latest release:
- No dedicated MED-V infrastructure to deploy – MED-V 2.0 workspaces are deployed and managed using existing electronic software distribution (ESD) systems, including SCCM 2007 R2 or higher.
- Streamlined sign-on to MED-V workspace – Users can save their passwords for seamless sign-on to MED-V workspace
- Automatic app publishing – New apps deployed to MED-V workspaces, including App-V virtual apps, are available to Windows 7 host automatically
- My Documents and Desktop redirection – Legacy apps work just like locally installed apps when it comes to opening, saving and printing documents
- USB device/SmartCard support – USB devices, including thumb drives and Smartcard readers can be shared between the host and apps running in MED-V workspace
- New IE redirection options – IT admins can redirect legacy web apps using wildcards (http://*.example.com), sites (http://www.example.com/hr), at page-level (http://www.example.com/hr/benefits.asp) or by specifying a port (http://vpn.example.com:1234)
- Automated guest hibernation at shutdown – MED-V workspace is seamlessly suspended when the user logs off or shuts down Win7 host.
