Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization 9.0.1

Just noticed (was released July 18th, taken a while...) that ZENworks App Virtualization has had an update to 9.0.1, according to the release notes changes are as follows...
  • Administration Automation: When you enter the Product Name, Product Version, and Company Name in the Setup section, these values are copied automatically to the Installation Parameters section, which reduces the effort to manually enter the values again.
  • Protocol registration via MSI: ZENworks Application Virtualization 9.0.1 supports MAILTO: protocol registration using MSI installers. Previously, this was only possible by using the SpoonReg command-line tool. An MSI installer can now be used to deliver GroupWise 2012, create desktop shortcuts, and set the default mail client for the Windows shell.
  • Customizing applications when using Desktop Scan: When one or more applications are built using the desktop scan feature, the ZAV Studio configuration and the accompanying files can be saved. This allows for the application to be customized using ZAV Studio.
  • Publishing Juke-boxed applications to ZENworks: Virtual Applications with multiple triggers can now be published to ZENworks Configuration Management in one step. When publishing virtual applications to ZENworks, a launcher bundle is created for each trigger that has been defined in the application. This feature is particularly useful when publishing suite applications such as Microsoft Office that offer multiple launchers.
  • Support for New Templates: The ZENworks Application Virtualization 9.0.1 Configuration Wizard template/recipe now supports: Groupwise 2012, Google Chrome through version 19, Mozilla Firefox through version 12, Opera 11, and additional Adobe applications.
  • Naming Conventions: Spoon Plugin is now known as ZAV Plugin and Spoon Sandbox manager is now known as ZENworks Application Virtualization Sandbox Manager
