SilkTest - End of Life information

Earlier Borland announced end of support for few of older versions. I think, it is announced in the last month of 2006. I have given the URL below.

Updating Existing Automation to Eliminate Obsolete Specifiers

In version 8.0, SilkTest will discontinue support for certain platforms and application environments:

* Windows 95, NT4 6A, Windows 2000 SP 1,2,3
* IE 4 (SP2), IE 5.01, IE 5.5, IE 6 SP 0 a.k.a. Gold
* Netscape 4.x, 6.x
* PowerBuilder 6.5, 7, 8
* J2SE 1.1, 1.2.2, 1.3.0, 1.4.0, 1.4.1
* AOL 7, 8 and 8 Plus
* SilkTest’s VO extensions (see Note - Discontinuation of VO )
* JInitiator 

In general, SilkTest attempts to preserve backward compatibility. However, the discontinuation of support for VO extensions, leaving only one extension (the DOM extension) per browser version, made it desirable to streamline the list of browser specifiers in Additionally, included several GUI specifiers that represented platforms that have not been supported for quite a few versions of SilkTest, so the list of GUI specifiers has also been trimmed. If your automation uses GUI or browser specifiers that have been eliminated, then you will need to modify it. The information presented below will describe the changes to the specifier lists and will aid you in updating your automation.
