Important deprecation announcement for ArcGIS 10.1 and the upcoming release of 10.2.1 / 10.2.2

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 Additionally, we review our technology to see if any of the newer functionality has superseded older functionality.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. Many of these changes have been a long time coming (for both platforms and functionality); and we have also noted upcoming plans to give you early notice for software that will eventually be impacted.

Adding a basemap at 10.1 changes the coordinate system of the data frame to Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere)

In ArcGIS Desktop 10.1, adding a basemap in ArcMap using the Add Basemap dialog box causes the coordinate system of the data frame to change to WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere).

This is a known issue, and bug number NIM081490 can be used to check for status updates. Esri is working on a permanent solution to this issue. In the meantime, please refer to the technical article, “Adding a basemap changes the coordinate system of the data frame to Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere),” for more information on the issue and a workaround.

Important patches for ArcGIS 10.1 released

With the release of ArcGIS 10.1, we have identified some issues that are affecting the GIS user community and have worked to fix these in some patches that were released today.

The ArcGIS 10.1 Parcel Editing General Maintenance Patch is now available on the ArcGIS Resource Center.

  • This patch resolves issues encountered with the Parcel Editor when connected to an ArcSDE database. Switching versions or database users results in broken editing templates and the reporting parcel layers are not turned on when joining. It also addresses issues with the Parcel Naming tool when working on parcels with origin connection lines.

The ArcGIS 10.1 (Desktop, Engine) ArcGIS Administrator Patch is now available on the ArcGIS Resource Center.

  • This patch addresses an issue where the IP address for the ArcGIS License Manager cannot be directly entered in the ArcGIS Administrator.

Please download these patches and install them at your earliest convenience.
