What are people using in place of Thin Print for Local Printer support and Windows 2008 R2 as a desktop OS in the Horizon View 5.3 environment?

AFAIK, there's still no ThinPrint or Location Based Printer support for 2008R2 as a desktop.

You will need to purchase the full-fledged ThinPrint product to get the equivalent functionality for 2008R2 desktops.

Does anyone know if this issue has been addressed in the forthcoming Horizon 6?
