      We're happy to announce that Dynamic Environment Manager 2009 (10.1) has been released, with the following new features:

      • Startup and Shutdown Tasks
        New Computer Environment settings for running tasks at computer startup and shutdown.
      • Active Directory Attribute References
        With the new %{AD$attributeName}% reference format you can use Active Directory attributes as part of DEM agent configuration or within a DEM setting.
        For instance, you could configure a user's profile archive path as %{AD$extensionAttribute8}%\%username%\Archives, or configure the UNC path for a Drive Mapping setting as \\Filesrv\%{AD$department}%.
        These references can also be used in placeholders.
      • ViewClient Property References
        Similarly, %{ViewClient_propertyName}% can be used to reference ViewClient properties. These properties are of course already available as %ViewClient_...% environment variables, but those are only set a little while after logon and reconnect. As a result, ViewClient env var in a placeholder often can't be expanded as the variable has not been set yet; the new references solve this.
        %{ViewClient_propertyName}% can also be used as part of a DEM setting (for instance, as an argument to a logon task or a triggered task custom command.)
      • 'Less than' and 'Greater than' Comparison Operators
        The Active Directory Attribute, Active Directory Site Name, Endpoint Name, Environment Variable, Horizon Client Property, and Registry Value conditions now also support 'Less than' and 'Greater than' comparison, comparing numerically if both operands are numbers, and alphabetically (case-insensitive) otherwise.


      Startup and shutdown tasks are only available in the Enterprise edition. The other features are available in both editions.
