Citrix virtual apps & desktops 7.18 and new app-v features

As outlined by Ben’s article in Citrix blogs (see:¬†https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2018/06/15/using-app-v-dynamic-deployment-user-configuration-files-with-xenapp-7-18/ )

a key new feature that has been added and long sought after was the ability to alter the dynamic configuration files that came with your app-v package. Delighted this piece is in now as a million and one use cases for it and just wish it was part of the LTSR release which would make it even better.

Essentially in tandem with the app-v sequencing feature for install capture in AppDNA (see: https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/dna/current-release/configure/install-capture/dna-execution-profiles/dna-execution-profile-appv-51.html) this helps speed up packaging times, also provides more flexibility in the testing cycle as most times will be looking to amend the deployment files rather than that binaries within the app-v package itself.
