With almost every new release of ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS for Server, there are changes that aim to improve software quality and performance; sometimes, these changes require you to update your workflows. The improvements and deprecations made for geocoding in ArcMap 10.5 and ArcGIS Pro 1.4 may break some existing workflows or require you to prepare before installing ArcGIS 10.5. In this post, we’ll give you an overview of these changes. Continue reading
This blog post provides updated deprecation information regarding ArcGIS 10.3 and 10.2.x. The first version of the 10.3 series was released in December 2014. Starting in 2014, with the release of ArcGIS 10.2.1, the pattern for the deprecation plan changed from a … Continue reading
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 Additionally, we review our technology to see if any of the newer functionality has superseded older functionality.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.

With the release of ArcGIS 10.2.1 and its related products, and in response to Microsoft’s plan to end support for Windows XP in April 2014, the 10.2.1 release of ArcGIS for Desktop, ArcGIS for Server, ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Reader, and Runtime … Continue reading
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.
For all existing ArcIMS customers out there, there has been a change to the ArcGIS 10/10.1 deprecation plan. Version 10.0 was the last release of ArcIMS and there are no plans for any future versions of ArcIMS.
Here is the updated text from the deprecation document:
“ArcGIS 10.0 was the last release of ArcIMS; we will no longer ship ArcIMS in releases after ArcGIS 10.0. With the adoption of ArcGIS Server and the move to 64-bit servers, ArcIMS is no longer the recommended product for producing web maps. While no longer shipped as part of ArcGIS, the current version of ArcIMS (version 10.0) will be continued to be supported as part of the ArcGIS 10.0 lifecycle.”

At each release we assess if there are any platforms (operating systems, databases, development environments, hardware…) that are not being used as much anymore or are at the end of their supportability. In addition, we look at our own technology stack to see if some of the newer functionality has superseded older functionality. In either case, we try to give as much notice as possible for any changes in supported platforms or functionality in deprecation notices.
Given the pace of technology changes the last few years, we have been fairly conservative in what we deprecate. However, we found that with the ArcGIS 9.3.1 release out and ArcGIS 10 in development, we have a number of items that need deprecation. Many of these deprecations have been a long time coming (both platforms and functionality); others give you early notice of things that will eventually be impacted. So rather than having you look for individual notices for ArcGIS 9.3.1 and ArcGIS 10, we’ve put together a complete document that outlines what to expect as we move forward.
The document, ArcGIS 9.3.1 and 10 Deprecation Plan, outlines what we will deprecate for ArcGIS 10 and lists what platforms and functionality from ArcGIS 9.3.1 will not be supported in ArcGIS 10. (This deprecation document is also linked from KB article 37113 for reference.)
