Open Spatial Support announcement
Microsoft have announced their policy for on-going support of IE. Open Spatial will follow suit and so we would like you to be aware of the details.
This excerpt below is from the Microsoft announcement:
“Internet Explorer is a component of the Windows operating system and the most current version will continue to follow the specific support lifecycle policy for the operating system on which it is installed. Internet Explorer 11 will be supported for the life of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. The latest version of Internet Explorer will continue to follow the component policy, which means that it follows the support lifecycle and is supported for as long as the Windows operating system on which it is installed.”
