Hi Amelie,

As of this release, product version numbers will appear in the format YYMM, where YY is the year and MM the month the product released. For example, a release in July 2019 appears as 1907. In earlier releases of Citrix Files for Windows, version numbers were following the format 4.version, where the version value incremented by one for each release. For example, the release following 4.5 was 4.6. Those earlier releases will not be updated with the new numbering format.

Is there any change or still the same?

  • MSI Support - Administrators can now deploy an x64 .msi file of Citrix Files for Windows. Today, our application only supports autoupgrading to an .exe. Since .msi only supports .msi to .msi upgrades, you must deploy the GPO to disable autoupgrades. If you have the .exe version of Citrix Files for Windows installed and you want to use the .msi, you must uninstall the .exe version first. You can download the .msi from  Citrix Downloads.
