vBulletin 3.6 and 3.7 are now End-of-Life...

With this news I hope this doesn't mean that the mods from 3.5 - 3.7 will be put in the archive? A lot if not all of these mods still work with the 3.8 series.

Will we hear anything on this before (if) they get moved so we will have time to get any downloads we may need? Since this always seems to be an issue...

Thank you

3.5 & 3.6 have been EOL for at least a year now. The only change in that announcement is that 3.7 is now EOL as well.

I think that's the point he's making. Why would they move move them to the archive now when they've been End of Life already for a year?

Modifications written for 3.5 and higher will mostly work on all 3.x (3.5 and higher) versions, so these will not removed until some time after the entire 3-series (including 3.8) will be end-of-life.

There are no plans to move the 3.5, 3.6 or 3.7 sections to the archive area.

However, we may block new releases in them (i.e. only allow replies to existing mods).

hopefully i do not release there, or i would have to post all my work before you block new releases ... lol

btw, for the information... even if they plan the eol of 3.8 when 4.2 is out... they will support it for the next year to come anyway, so don't panic, this site will not drown, the downloads will still exists, your site will be able to continue to work after that date... you are not linked to vb.com...

Thank you for the answers guys. This is what I was looking for more or less

And Nex That is also what I was going to ask..just not now. How much longer after 4.2 will they be open. Who knows when 4.2 will be here. With their time line that could be here within this year and 3.8 could be EOL. Now, will these be moved? I know this is way to soon to know any of this though,,,

I like use "I think" to allow for a margin of error, even when I'm fairly certain or even sure.
