What’s New In Horizon 2212 – Now Generally Available

by | Jan 17, 2023 | VMware Horizon View


Just released and made generally available on 01/12/2022, Horizon Version 2212 is the latest Extended Service Branch release, and it’s a big one! When you move to the Extended Service Branch, you can expect a more stable Horizon environment. You are free to move out of Extended Service Branches to current releases, so long as you upgrade to a version at the same or later date than your most recent ESB SP update. As a reminder, the ESBs are typically released 12 months apart. In the future I will be going over some of these new announcements in future posts.
