UMT360 Support Matrix Update

admin | November 8th, 2019

This blog post details upcoming changes to the UMT360 software support matrix:

End of Support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 10 (IE10)

In 2015 Microsoft released Edge as the flagship browser that will support modern web technologies and over time replace Internet Explorer (IE). Since then, IE has not received major updates, and has not kept pace with modern web standards required by today’s web applications. Earlier this year, Microsoft discouraged the use of Internet Explorer as a default browser.

To allow us to continue to take advantage of modern web standards and deliver improved features and the best possible user experience across all of our products, we have decided to end support for IE10. We will continue supporting Internet Explorer 11.

What does end of support for IE10 mean?

End of support means we will not fix bugs that are specific to IE10, and new features might not be fully compatible with this browser version.

When is this happening?

We will no longer provide support for IE10 starting on January 1st, 2020.

What this means for you

In preparation for the end of support dates, we recommend switching to one of our supported browsers, such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Microsoft IE 11 or Mozilla Firefox.

End of Mainstream Support for Microsoft SharePoint 2013

Microsoft’s mainstream support for SharePoint 2013 Service Pack 1 ended on April 10, 2018. In order for us to continue to provide our customers with the best possible capabilities in UMT360, we have decided to end mainstream support for UMT360 for SharePoint 2013 starting with the next major version of UMT360.

What does end of mainstream support for UMT360 for SharePoint 2013 mean?

New features and enhancements will no longer be released for customers running UMT360 for SharePoint 2013. Specific product fixes will continue to be released for UMT360 for SharePoint 2013, as needed, to address critical issues.

What this means for you?

If you are a customer that runs UMT360 for SharePoint 2013 and want to continue using the current capabilities of UMT360 going forward, we are committed to continue providing you with support. However, in order to receive new features, enhancements and new capabilities at a fast pace going forward, you have the following options:

  • Migrate to UMT360 Online and benefit from our ever-green version (updated automatically on a regular basis)You
  • Upgrade to SharePoint 2016 or SharePoint 2019, both being supported versions by UMT360 When is this happening? Mainstream support for UMT360 for SharePoint 2013 will end once the next major version of UMT360 (Version 6 – v6) will be released. General availability of UMT360 v6 is projected for April 2020. Thank you for continuing to be a valued UMT360 customer. Feel free to reach out to us if you would like additional details around migrating to UMT360 Online or if you require help upgrading your SharePoint 2013 platform to a newer version.
