Announcement of discontinuation PTV Mapserver 5.7

We would like to let you know that PTV GROUP will be discontinuing the PTV Mapserver version 5.7 on 01/04/2015. From then onwards, we will no longer provide updates and support for this version. Please notice that new versions are ready for download at the Customer Area (login is required).

The following versions will be discontinued on 01/04/2015:

Product Version Operating System
PTV Mapserver – Windows (x86)

Why are the products being phased out?

The PTV Mapserver SDK is constantly being enhanced. Many new and improved functions have been integrated in the past at the request of our customers. In addition, you will have noticed that a maintenance contract on the current versions pays off, as it integrates extended functions. It also guarantees that you remain up-to-date – a basic prerequisite for day-to-day operations. PTV Group is therefore meeting the growing requirements of its clients. On the other hand, costs arise from supporting older software versions. For this reason, PTV Group, like other software providers, has to limit the number of software versions available. Our resources will be redirected into further improving the PTV Mapserver. The current software solutions therefore create the perfect conditions for your business applications.
