I just installed the Citrix Receiver 4.2.1 on an iPad that used to have the
1.1 receiver.

The first thing I found was that now I cannot get to my web interface page
via Safari, it goes into a terminal loop during the client detection stage.

Then I found that the preconfigured URL for setting up the PN Agent URL, and
Domain name no longer works. (This is a URL generated by an online Citrix
utility. It is used for either publishing the URL via web, or sending via
email so that a client doesn't have to type in those pieces of info.) You
tap on it and nothing happens.

Once in the Receiver I found that there is no way to log off and switch
users. You can apparently add another profile, but any apps that I've placed
on the desktop are visible to the next user to set up a profile in the
Receiver. I suppose if I logged off they might disappear, but again I found
no way to log off the PN interface which shows the apps.

I was able to log on via the web interface via Safari by bypassing client
detection. My apps showed, tapping on one brought up a dialog asking if I
wanted to open the ica file using Citrix. Once I tapped Citrix, the receiver
took over and launched the app.

Bottom line is that this version of the Receiver is not an upgrade, it is a
MAJOR change from all previously documented behavior of the Receiver.
