Second beta for AVE 2.3 available, now

After adding some new features to and fixing newly discovered issues in a beta of upcoming Application Virtualization Explorer, version 2.3, we are releasing a second beta build today. And that’s not all, we also have a release date set now as well!

“Beta” might not actually be the correct term to describe what’s now available; think of it more as a release candidate since all the features are now in and should hopefully also in a working order at that. New build is only available for those of you who requested access to the beta release after the initial announcement, and you can download the new beta version from the same address using the same credentials as before.

Here’s a short list of features added since the previous build:

  • Ability to duplicate/clone published applications in the package
  • New plugin for importing currently opened package file to local App-V Client cache
  • Support for digital signing and customization of the package MSI files
  • Support for setting virtualized font -attribute for virtual files
  • Support for selecting minimum required App-V Client version for the package

And the release date for the actual bits? That will be next Monday, 12th of December.

I’d encourage you to test out the second beta and report any major issues found; there’s still little bit of time (but not much!) left for fixing any major issues found before RTM happens.
