Product End of Life Dates

0

This morning, Claris has announced their product ‘End of Life’ dates for their currently supported products. End of Life dates are the end dates that Claris promise to support the product until.

From Claris:

“As you are aware, Claris provides customers with support for current versions of FileMaker products and for the two prior product releases. Beginning next year, Claris plans to release new product releases on a more frequent basis than it has in the past. Claris intends to support FileMaker products released on this new schedule for two years from the date of initial release.”

Below is the end of life schedule that Claris has for currently-supported versions of the FileMaker Platform:

Rather helpfully Claris have also provided an example of future support life-cycles, too. They have also said that these dates are just examples, they are not fixed.
