With IGEL OS 12, the modular principle is introduced – you can install and update single applications like Citrix or AVD client, Chromium browser, etc. individually. All applications currently available for IGEL OS 12 can be found in the IGEL App Portal. 

Changelogs for IGEL OS Apps and IGEL OS Base System can be found in the IGEL App Portal.
