In preparation of the Horizon View 5.3 release VMware released a new View client for windows. First of all the version number changed from 5.4 to 2.2. This change was done to better align the client version numbers. Also the version 2.2 sports a new look and feel (like the new View iOS client does).
The new client also includes:
- Support for Microsoft Windows 8.1 as client system
- Support for VMware Horizon View 5.3 and therefore support for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 as desktop
- Windows 7 Multimedia Redirection
- Flash URL Redirection enhancements
