ROM release for your Titanium - What is new

The Iconbar - Fri, 07/28/2017 - 08:35
In a previous article, we looked at installing the new ROM for your Titanium. This time we will look at what the new release offers.

This is actually quite a major update and there is a long list of changes. The offical full list of changes is on the ROOL website. Some of the changes are not really relevent to Titanium users (Pico build fix, introduce iMx6 to ROOL repository) but there are lots of interest.

From a users point of view, there are 3 major new features

The first is the addition of 256 color modes.

This makes it much easier to use old software which was written for these modes.

Another bounty enhancement is the new EDID support means that your machine can be much 'smarter' when you plug a monitor into it. It is not Titanium-specifc (but very nice to have). This is the result of the EDID bounty from ROOL.

Improvements to ADFS now mean that you can have up to 8 terabytes of storage on RISC OS (and RISC OS uses large drives more efficiently).

A nice little enhancement for Paint is the addition of a timer control for the spray can (which was previously a little unwieldy on fast new modern machines). Paint is now version 2.21 (last updated May 2017).

BASIC and the Char and Draw applications both get enhancements and bug fixes.

The whole package is free to download and brings the Titanium bang up to date with RISC OS developments. What are your impressions of the new update? Have you found any problems?

Hyper-V virtual machine gallery and networking improvements

Microsoft Virtualisation Blog - Wed, 07/26/2017 - 01:42

In January, we added Quick Create to Hyper-V manager in Windows 10.  Quick Create is a single-page wizard for fast, easy, virtual machine creation.

Starting in the latest fast-track Windows Insider builds (16327+) we’re expanding on that idea in two ways.  Quick Create now includes:

  1. A virtual machine gallery with downloadable, pre-configured, virtual machines.
  2. A default virtual switch to allow virtual machines to share the host’s internet connection using NAT.

To launch Quick Create, open Hyper-V Manager and click on the “Quick Create…” button (1).

From there you can either create a virtual machine from one of the pre-built images available from Microsoft (2) or use a local installation source.  Once you’ve selected an image or chosen installation media, you’re done!  The virtual machine comes with a default name and a pre-made network connection using NAT (3) which can be modified in the “more options” menu.

Click “Create Virtual Machine” and you’re ready to go – granted downloading the virtual machine will take awhile.

Details about the Default Switch

The switch named “Default Switch” or “Layered_ICS”, allows virtual machines to share the host’s network connection.  Without getting too deep into networking (saving that for a different post), this switch has a few unique attributes compared to other Hyper-V switches:

  1. Virtual machines connected to it will have access to the host’s network whether you’re connected to WIFI, a dock, or Ethernet.
  2. It’s available as soon as you enable Hyper-V – you won’t lose internet setting it up.
  3. You can’t deleted it.
  4. It has the same name and device ID (GUID c08cb7b8-9b3c-408e-8e30-5e16a3aeb444) on all Windows 10 hosts so virtual machines on recent builds can assume the same switch is present on all Windows 10 Hyper-V host.

I’m really excited by the work we are doing in this area.  These improvements make Hyper-V a better tool for people running virtual machines on a laptop.  They don’t, however, replace existing Hyper-V tools.  If you need to define specific virtual machine settings, New-VM or the new virtual machine wizard are the right tools.  For people with custom networks or complicated virtual network needs, continue using Virtual Switch Manager.

Also keep in mind that all of this is a work in progress.  There are rough edges for the default switch right now and there aren’t many images in the gallery.  Please give us feedback!  Your feedback helps us.  Let us know what images you would like to see and share issues by commenting on this blog or submitting feedback through Feedback Hub.

XenApp Essentialsを使ってみた

Citrix employee blogs - Wed, 07/26/2017 - 00:00

みなさん、こんにちは。4月に執筆したブログ『Citrix Cloudを使ってみた』に続き、今回はXenApp Essentialsを構築・評価しました。本ブログではXenApp Essentialsの特徴および構築方法、さらにXenApp and XenDesktop Serviceとの違いをまとめました。

  • XenApp Essentials の特徴

XenApp Essentialsは、Microsoft社のRemoteAppの後継として位置づけられた製品です。ユーザーが利用したいアプリケーションをすべてAzure上のXenAppサーバーにインストールし運用します。またリモート接続時に必要なNetScalerや管理ツールに必要なコンポーネントおよびデータベースは、Citrix Cloud上で用意されています。システム管理者はActive Directoryとアプリケーションの管理を行うだけで、ユーザーにインターネット経由でアプリケーションを容易にかつ安全に利用する環境を提供することができます。

このXenApp EssentialsはMachine Creation Services(MCS)によるイメージ配信を利用したシステムで、ウィザードに沿って操作することで簡単にセットアップが行えます。1台1台にアプリケーションをインストールしたVDAを用意する必要はありません。言い換えればMCSの機能を使わず個別にアプリケーションサーバーを用意して公開することはできません。それを実現する場合はXenApp and XenDesktop Serviceをご利用いただくことになります。

  • XenApp Essentials の構築


・Azure MarketplaceよりXenApp Essentialsを購入する。

・Azure上にActive Directoryサーバーとアプリケーションサーバー(ドメイン参加)のマスタVMを作成する。(Windows …
