The latest update of the IGEL OS features Linux Kernel version 5.4.48. This gives the users an expanded list of hardware including those that use newer generation WiFi chipsets. As mentioned above, version 11.04 supports several different collaboration software. This is becoming more important as more and more people choose to work from home. Another big new feature is the initial support for a Chromium browser.

IGEL OS 11.04 features include:

  • Expanded Wireless Hardware Support – IGEL OS now supports newer generation WiFi chipset-based wireless hardware and devices, giving users greater flexibility of choice.
  • Browser-based Appliance Mode – IGEL OS now offers a special browser-based appliance mode for secure, single-purpose endpoint computing functions (e.g, kiosk).
  • Robust Performance and Support for an Extended List of Conferencing and Collaboration Solutions – with IGEL OS 11.04, the OS is optimized for Microsoft Teams with the latest Citrix Workspace App client and offers an integrated Zoom Plugin for Citrix, allowing all aspects of a Zoom web conference to run in the virtual environment while locally processing essential real-time communications components. It also features enhanced support for Cisco Webex Meetings VDI and Webex Teams VDI.
  • Extended Peripheral Support – IGEL OS 11.04 features expanded Poly and EPOS peripheral support, and integration and support of DeskMate.
  • Chromium Browser Support – IGEL OS 11.04 now includes experimental support of a Chromium browser, meaning as an initial implementation the company is welcoming feedback from users for future enhancements going forward. This gives end-users broader choice with an open-source browser option included with the base OS.
