RES Workspace Manager 2011 released

From the partner mail I just received:
A new version of Workspace Manager is available today! This new version now offers capabilities to set dynamic privileges, website security, integration with Service Orchestration and much more. This builds on the proven and trusted advantages of a centrally managed and dynamic computing environment, zero profile technology and being OS and application delivery independent.
I’ve already build a PoC with the RC version of RES Workspace Manager 2011 so I had the chance to see how dynamic privileges and website security works. Especially the dynamic privileges feature is a big win in this release. From now on we can define an application to run with elevated rights (Run as administrator) when published via RES Workspace Manager. I know that there are a lot of customers were waiting for this feature.
