With Lync™ 2013, Microsoft has introduced a new VDI Plug-in for Windows devices. This Tech Preview release enables the Microsoft® Lync™ 2013 VDI Plug-in to be used with the Citrix Receiver for Windows 3.x and XenApp 6.x. The Tech Preview consists of a new plug-in to the Citrix Receiver for Windows called the Display Adapter Plug-in.
