November 9, 2015 Leave a comment
As mentioned before, Microsoft has made changes to the support lifecycle for Internet Explorer [IE] and .net Framework 4 series [DNF].
As of January 16, 2016, you must be at the latest version of internet Explorer to continue to get updates and support. If you are in a company you can set up the Enterprise Mode for IE. If you aren’t in a company, you can enable compatibility mode from the tools menu.
Windows Vista and Server 2008 need to be at IE 9. Windows Server 2012 must be at IE 10. All other versions of Windows require IE 11.
On the same date, Microsoft will no longer support DNF 4.0, 4.5, and 4.51. You must be at DNF 4.52 or later by that date. Latest version is DNF 4.6 which includes all the previous 4.x editions]. DNF 4.61 is in release candidate mode and should be out probably before year’s end.
Other versions such as DNF 3.5 and 3.51 will continue to be supported but primarily updated only with security updates only.
