So does anyone know when Horizon Suite 5.3 is going GA?  We just bought the entire suite about a month before 5.3 was "announced" at the Europe VMworld conference.  I held off on moving 5.2 into production thinking that 5.3 was just around the corner, now we are about 30 days post announcement and if it is going to be much longer maybe I will just roll with 5.2.  I would rather not do that but if it is going to be much longer I might as well. 

Thanks for any insight.

Hi

I don't know about the release of 5.3 but do you know if it will support Windows 2012 Active Directory as 5.2 doesn't

We are using 5.2 in production and our domain controllers are all running Windows 2012 R2.  We have had no issues with View 5.2 and the 2012 R2 upgrade.
