As mentioned in my previous post, a number of the features for the next release of App-V, namely version 4.6, have been announced, however this post focuses on the availability of the App-V 4.6 Technical Adoption Program (TAP).

As mentioned in my previous post, there are a number of new features within version 4.6, and these are summarised below:

  • Extending the platform to support 64-bit: provide the ability to sequence and run both 32-bit and 64-bit apps on 64-bit platforms.
  • Expanding our globalisation and localisation:  providing twelve additional languages to support both virtualising non-English applications and running the App-V user interface in additional non-English languages.
  • Platform Additions: Windows 7 and Windows 2008 R2 platform support.

We need your help! Participants in the App-V 4.6 TAP will partner with the App-V product team to validate the product through production deployments prior to its release.

What are the benefits of being part of a TAP?

  • Designated point of contact on the product team
  • Regular communications with the product team
  • Opportunity to provide feedback for both App-V 4.6 and the next App-V release
  • Access to pre-release versions of the product and the ability to deploy into production before the product ships
  • Priority 24x7 product support up until the shipping of the product, plus 30 days

Requirements for participating in the App-V 4.6 TAP

The App-V 4.6 TAP will be offered to customers/partners who will agree to the program terms specific to the product’s pre-release validation. The customers will need to deliver and engage per the program commitments. If customers do not deliver on their commitments then they will be asked to withdraw their engagement.

For all the details, take a look at this document:
