October 27, 2010 1 comment

Today Citrix released CAG 5.0 and the new Access Controller Software (formerly known as Advanced Access Control). You can download the VPX for XenServer/VMWare, the Access Controller for Windows 2008/2008 R2 and an ISO image/upgrade image for the model 2010 hardware appliance here (MyCitrix account required).
