Citrix XenApp 5.0 delayed?

Brian Madden, reporting from Citrix Synergy conference, speculates that the next version of XenApp (formerly Presentation Server) has been postponed from its original planned release date.

Citrix was supposed to ship XenApp 5.0 90 days after the Microsoft Windows Server 2008 launch, but first beta code appeared just at the end of last month and the 90 days milestone is at the end of May.

It’s likely that Citrix redefined it’s priorities to boost the recent release of XenDesktop.

Update: A Senior System Engineer at Citrix, Sridhar Mullapudi, just published a new post on the corporate blog revealing that XenApp 5.0 is targeted for H2 2008.

The Virtualization Industry Roadmap has been updated accordingly.
