I’m excited to announce the release of ProfileUnity v6.8.5, the latest version of our leading user environment management solution. This new release is packed with features that enable further centralization of Windows application and user environment management, making it easier for IT admins to manage their digital workspaces.
One of the most significant enhancements in ProfileUnity v6.8.5 is the ability to deploy and assign modern Windows applications of all types through the central management console. This includes Liquidware traditional FlexApp, FlexApp One, MSIX, MSIX App Attach, Microsoft App-V, and VMware ThinApp. With this new feature, administrators can now manage all their applications from a single console, reducing the need for multiple tools.
In addition to application management, ProfileUnity v6.8.5 introduces a new feature called Application Cloaking, which completely hides select applications from specific users while making them available to specified users based on a context-aware filter. This feature simplifies image management by allowing administrators to place certain applications in a base image while using that image across various user groups. Application Cloaking can be invoked on any ProfileUnity context-aware attribute, such as location, time of day, or any environment variable.
ProfileUnity has also gained two new feature modules: “MSIX” and “Microsoft App-V” management. These features enable the assignment of either MSIX or Microsoft App-V applications to any ProfileUnity context-aware filter user or group target, all without scripting. Application files can be on-premises or cloud-hosted, and MSIX App Attach is also supported for non-persistent use cases such as Microsoft AVD, Citrix Virtual Desktops, or VMware Horizon.
Another significant feature in ProfileUnity v6.8.5 is Universal Folder Redirection and Universal Registry Redirection. These innovative features open all Windows folders and registry keys to redirection, allowing administrators to redirect users’ customized settings from applications back into users’ profiles to roam with them. This is a notable industry first and provides Windows and application administrators with the flexibility they need to make changes to remediate applications that store user preferences outside the user profile.
ProfileUnity v6.8.5 is now available for a free trial, and you can download it here. We believe that this latest release will help our customers increase their productivity, streamline their IT management, and reduce their costs. We look forward to continuing to innovate and support our customers with the best digital workspace management solutions in the industry.
