The wait is over – ThinOS 8.4 is finally available

This release is packed full of new and cool features.
Here is a comprehensive list of all new additions.

If you are under ThinOS maintenance you can now download the new firmware directly from Dell Digital Locker.

Wyse Management Suite announced at Citrix Synergy

Earlier this week during the Citrix Synergy Dell announced the availabilty of the new management suite for Dell Wyse Thin Clients, called Wyse Management Suite 1.0.

WMS is technically very similar to the Cloud Client Manager. Therefore CCM will now be renamed to WMS. However, WMS will be available in three versions.
The Standard version will be on-premise solution, it is free of charge and can be installed in the local datacenter.
The Pro version will be available as on-premise and public cloud offering. This version is subscription based that includes per seat cost, maintenance and ProSupport.

CCM customer do not have to do anything. They are automatically migrated to the new WMS.
If you are using WDM, you should stay with it for now. Later Dell will release a migration path at no cost, if you want to go from WDM to WMS.

Best ConfGen Version ever released

Normally I am not patting myself on my back. However, the new version of ConfGen has cost me a lot of work and I really hope you will like it as much as I do.
The new version has a brand new section for Dell Wyse Thin Linux.

All parameters up to version 1.0.3 are included now.
As this is the first implementation, I do hope that I haven’t made to many mistakes here. Be nice to me please 🙂

Second new part is ThinOS.
Of course, ThinOS is not new to ConfGen. However, I have included all new parameters for the upcoming 8.4_009 release planned for end of June.
Besides of all the new parameters, I have done some design changes.
There is a new dropdown field available, which is capable of selecting more than one value.

As you can see below, the field it auto-expanding in the moment you move your mouse pointer on it, showing all values with small checkboxes in front and as soon as you leave the box with your mouse pointer, it is shrinking automatically again showing a small green tick in front of the box to make clear, you have selected something.

The other change is the red alert sign in front of all fields that allow encryption. As you know, I am no longer allowed to encrypt any strings in ConfGen, as you all should use AES encryption instead. To make it clearer, I have added the red alert sign showing up as soon as you enter anything in such a field. You can hover over that sign to get a warning or click on it to get help on creating AES encrypted passwords.

Last but not least, I have modified all Comboboxes and Numeric fields to be read only to prevent entering wrong values. Also ConfGen is now saving the path of the last opened file for later use.

Let me know what you think about all these changes.

Mini computing puck 3040 released

Yesterday Dell officially released their brand new Thin Client called 3040. This little puppy is only small in its dimensions.

As you can see from the pictures the client looks like an icehockey puck and is not much bigger. It measures only 101.6mm x 27.94 mm x 101.6 mm (HWD) but is packed full with the latest and greatest hardware components.
Based on an Intel Atom x5-Z8350 Quad Core 1.44GHz CPU, it is equipped with 2GB RAM, 8 GB flash for ThinOS and 16GB for the ThinLinux variant, 3 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB 3.1 Gen 1, 2 x DisplayPorts and a RJ45 1 Gb/s network port. Optionally you can get it with inbuild Dual band 802.111 a/b/g/n/ac wireless and Bluetooth.
The graphic card supports up to 2560×1600@60Hz in dual screen mode, so each monitor can use that resolution.
And the best is, that this tiny box only needs 3.3 Watts in idle mode.
As written above, the unit will be available with ThinOS and ThinLinux.
