Citrix has posted a blog announcing the availability of XenServer 7.1 CU1, the first cumulative update for the XenServer 7.1 Long-Term Support Release (LTSR).
CU1 rolls-up all hotfixes released on XenServer 7.1 to date. While there are no new features introduced in this update, a number of additional fixes are included to further enhance and simplify XenApp and XenDesktop environments. Information pertaining to these fixes can be found in the release notes.
Of particular significance, this cumulative update provides customers on Long-Term Support Release (LTSR) 7.1 with the latest platform fixes applicable to v7.1. Unlike Current Releases (CR), which provide access to new features on an almost quarterly basis, Long-Term Support Releases are designed for customers who, possessing the features they need to optimize their XenApp and XenDesktop environments, intend to remain on the LTSR for the foreseeable future. For these customers, using a Long-Term Support Release offers stability – Citrix will support the LTSR for up to 10 years – as well as access to fixes as they become available.
