In 2017 Windward will be ending our support for .NET 3.5 and Java 1.6 (Java SE 6) in Version 16 of AutoTag and our Engines.

Official support for .NET 3.5 ended in January 2016 and support for Java 1.6 ended in February 2013. We’ve decided to move away from these legacy platforms to take advantage of new libraries, tools, and programming techniques available in .NET 4 and Java 1.7 that don’t exist in earlier versions. We’re already planning to leverage this new technology to help AutoTag and our Engines continue to provide you with industry best reporting performance, flexibility, and ease of use.

We encourage you to always use to submit your ideas for product improvements and enhancements.

If you have questions or concerns that this move will affect your application or if you need any help upgrading your environment, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team at Thank you.
