At each release, Esri assesses if there are any platforms (operating systems, databases, development environments, or hardware) that are at the end of their supportability. Additionally, we review our technology to see if any of the newer functionality has superseded older functionality. In either case, we try to give as much advanced notice as possible for any changes in supported platforms or functionality through our Deprecation Plan documents.
Given the pace in the change of technology, we have been fairly conservative in what we deprecate. However, with the update to the Deprecation Plan for ArcGIS 10.1 and 10.2, plus the releases of ArcGIS 10.2.1 and 10.2.2, we have a number of items that need to be deprecated.

Esri is committed to providing the best possible support for our products. Periodically, it is necessary to deprecate specific functionalities and/or platforms to continue delivering optimal support to our users for the remaining Esri software products.
Please be aware that after December 31, 2013, ArcGIS 9.3 and ArcGIS 9.3.1 (for Desktop and Server) and their extensions will be officially retired. ArcGIS 10.0 will be moved to its Mature Support phase, and 10.1 will move to Extended Support.
A recent Microsoft update (deployed as KB 2732673, KB 2775511, or KB 2824408) may result in data corruption when using ArcGIS on a Windows 7 system and writing data to remote data storage on a Windows Vista, 7, 2008/2008 R2, or 2012 system. This data corruption appears as truncation of a write request and has shown up in file geodatabases and shapefiles.
Microsoft has acknowledged the problem, identified the affected component as RDBSS.sys, and provided further details.
How Microsoft Made These Updates Available
KB 2732673 and KB 2824408 are hotfixes to address specific issues. The KB 2775511 update is a cumulative update that is available exclusively at http://catalog.update.microsoft.com. Because it is available only through the Windows update catalog, the KB 2775511 update is not considered a security update by Microsoft and is not being deployed broadly.
