Today I found out that one of the most interesting player in the Application Virtualization space, InstallFree, released a new version ( of the InstallFree Bridge Suite.

Some big changes are :

One Sphere : You can create application containers, fill them with apps and let them run in/as one sphere. So no you can decide the connectivity setting per application (see screenshot).
SELaunch : Shell Execute launch provides a basic level of interconnectivity between virtual application and native applications.
URL Redirect : This enables users to launch a virtual web browser from a native IE.
Download Manager : improves user experience by sequencing AOD downloads over low bandwidth networks.

Unfortunately the Encapsulator (packaging tool) has not been refreshed yet. You can find more information about the InstallFree products here:
