This action will take effect on March 31, 2019. The purpose of this notification is to officially communicate this policy and request that you upgrade, as soon as possible, to a supported release of the product.
Check the Download Center for the most recent release when planning your upgrade.

Please refer to the following page for more information about LTS releases: https://docs.tibco.com/pub/spotfire/general/LTS/spotfire_LTS_releases.htm. As part of your upgrade planning, please make sure to determine what type of release - LTS or mainstream (non-LTS) - best suits your needs.
During the next 12 months, Support will answer product questions, but no new defect corrections, in the form of hotfixes or service packs, will be provided.
Cases on the releases being retired will no longer be accepted after March 31, 2019. Cases under investigation for the releases being retired will be closed as of the retirement date, March 31, 2019.
