Release notes for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)

Version 5.11.9

New and enhanced features

  • Support for VDI Host auto-update functionality
    Users have the option to check for updates for the VDI Zoom Meeting client installed in the virtual desktop and update as soon as a new release is available. When users check for an update and a newer release is available, the user will be provided with information about the new update (such as release notes) and the option to download and install the update. Previously, the VDI Zoom Meeting Client did not allow users the ability to check for updates and set a preference for an update channel. This feature is disabled by default and requires administrators to enable a policy.
  • Logi Dock camera HID support
    When users install the Logi Tune app, the Zoom Meeting client can control video mute through the button on the Logi Dock camera.
    Note: HID support for the Logi Dock camera requires connecting the camera before starting Zoom. The Logi Dock camera HID functionality does not support “hot swap,” where the device is connected while Zoom is running.
  • Store local device selections for the thin client
    When users switch between two or more computers to access their remote desktop, their preferred devices are saved for each computer used to connect to the desktop. Devices selected by the user are stored locally, allowing any number of computers to each store the preferences for the devices attached.
  • Configure Zoom Phone e911 address for fallback mode
    When emergency services cannot be provided with a reliable location for a user (when a virtual desktop is being used in fallback mode), the user can enter a new address and/or confirm their location based on a previously submitted address. If an address is not provided, the user will be informed that their location will not be provided to emergency services in the event they call 911 with Zoom Phone.
  • Prevent VDI Meeting Client Installer from installing an older release
    The VDI Meeting Installer can detect if an existing Zoom Meeting client is already installed and if the previously installed package is a newer version. When users try to install an older release of the VDI Zoom Meeting client, an error message will appear. This feature prevents users from accidentally downgrading to an older release or installing a VDI version on top of an existing installation of the regular Zoom Meeting client.
  • Indonesian language support
    The Zoom client and Zoom web portal now support Indonesian language.

Resolved issues

  • Zoom Phone and HID sync
    An issue was discovered in the previous release where detecting HID devices for Zoom Phone did not occur if the device was already connected when the virtual desktop was launched. The issue did not affect Zoom Meetings and has been resolved.
  • Camera zoom in for Logitech webcams
    An issue was reported and fixed where users were reporting their Logitech web cameras were zooming in on a top corner area and not staying focused on the user.
  • Disable broadcast voice for breakout rooms
    The Broadcast Voice option for a breakout room host is disabled for VDI. This feature requires additional work in the VDI plugin and will be added to a future release.

    A problem has been fixed when a reaction was selected (such as Raise Hand) while in gallery or speaker view, and the view was changed to immersive view. Sometimes the reaction was the wrong size after switching to immersive mode.

  • Improvements for the display of voice messages
    A graphic improvement was made when displaying a voice message to better illustrate the audio content in the voice message.
  • Prevent older releases from being installed over a new release
    The MSI installer for the Zoom VDI Meeting client has been modified to prevent an older version from being installed when a new release is detected as already installed.
  • Minimize window not functioning correctly when DPI is different using AVD
    An issue was discovered and fixed where “minimize window” was not responding when the DPI configured for the virtual desktop was not the same as the DPI used where the AVD plugin was installed.
  • Black screen area displayed when stopping screen share for presenter
    An issue was reported using a Linux plugin where a rectangular area was not cleared correctly when stopping a presentation when using a combination of fullscreen mode for the Citrix virtual desktop and the Zoom application while viewing a meeting in gallery view with multiple participants.
  • Shared screen no longer visible after removing co-host permission
    A correction was made for a condition where removing co-host permissions for a participant while sharing incorrectly resulted in the share session no longer being visible for that participant.
