Future .NET Version Update

Posted on Categories SampleSort News

The next version of SampleSort (0.7.1) is already in the pipeline and with this release we will be moving to the latest version of .NET (version 4.5) unfortunately this will also usher in the discontinued support for Windows XP (long live Windows XP!).  Whilst it was a great operating system in its time it is 12 years since it was released.

Microsoft will also be dropping the Windows XP Extended Support on 8th April 2014 so it really is time to move off this OS.  Also we don’t think many people will still be using this OS for serious audio work as lots of audio equipment manufacturers no longer produce drivers for this OS due to the age and support situation from Microsoft.

We may well keep a download of SampleSort 0.7.0 available for XP users for a limited time.
