End of the mainstream support road for Project 2007 and Project Server 2007

Just catching up on a few recent topics of interest – and the first is the end of mainstream support for Project and Project Server 2007 – which was yesterday.  Christophe blogged about this too – http://blogs.msdn.com/b/chrisfie/archive/2012/10/03/project-server-2007-mainstream-support-ends-on-october-9-2012-upgrade-today.aspx – or if you prefer Spanish then Jorge blogged the same at http://blogs.technet.com/b/elfarodeprojectserver/archive/2012/10/10/project-server-2007-fin-de-soporte-tecnico-principal-el-dia-de-9-de-octubre-de-2012.aspx.

This doesn’t mean an complete end to support – but does mean the Microsoft complimentary support channels are no longer available for these products, and we will no longer be taking product change requests for these products, and will only be accepting hotfix requests from customers who have already purchased extended hotfix support for these specific products.  Of course the forums will still very likely be responsive to any 2007 questions posted.  We still have some hotfix requests in the pipeline so there will likely be cumulative updates for the Server, and possibly the client both later this month and in December.

As Christophe and Jorge suggest – a great time to upgrade to 2010, or to review 2013 and be ready to upgrade to the new Project – for  even more details the next release see Christophe’s other recent post – http://blogs.msdn.com/b/chrisfie/archive/2012/10/04/project-online-project-server-2013-the-new-project-teched-slides.aspx.
