You can find out more about these announcements here. On top of those announcements, Citrix announced the acquisition of Unidesk – the inventor of the Windows application packaging and management technology known as layering.

 Application layering has emerged as the best way to separate apps from the underlying operating system, so they can be managed once and delivered from any end user computing solution to any device.

Unidesk is a privately-held company that makes it possible for IT organizations to manage applications once across virtual desktops, shared hosted desktops, and published applications with unequaled packaging simplicity and full application compatibility.
