Added the option to launch remote MMC snap-in controls

The new function requires mmc.exe application published on the RDS host. The function enables the following String fields to customize behavior of the launch of the remote applications:
RemoteApp– the name of the remote application to start RemoteAppArgs– optional parameters of the remote application RemoteAppDir– initial folder to launch remote application in
Added support for Active Directory servers operating on a non-standard port
The update added support for Active Directory servers operating on a non-standard port including the integration option as well as the option to manage accounts in the Active Directory using LDAP Server / LDAP User records.

Added the option to change location of intermediate mapped drive file transfer storage for WEB RDP sessions
The update added the option to define custom location of the intermediate storage of files transferred to remote WEB RDP session. The option allows to offload intermediate storage from XTAM hosts to external network drives.
To enable the option use system parameter xtam.session.web.rdp.tmp in $XTAM/web/conf/catalina.properties file. The parameter defines full path on the Linux server or the the path on the Windows server using the format /cygdrive/x/folder where x is a drive letter and folder is a folder path. Default folder is located in $XTAM/guac/tmp on Linux hosts and $XTAM/guacd/tmp on Windows hosts.
