Effective January 1, 2015: Official support for Windows XP will be discontinued. What this means is that while we will not be actively breaking windows XP, we wont be putting engineering resources into keeping windows XP working. If you are still running windows XP, it is HIGHLY suggested that you update as that operating system is no longer receiving vendor security fixes either.
