Announcement of discontinuation – PTV Mapserver 5.6 and 5.8

We would like to let you know that PTV GROUP will be discontinuing the PTV Mapserver version 5.8 and lower on 01/04/2016. From then onwards, we will no longer provide updates and support for these versions. Please notice that a current version is available for download: http://xserver.ptvgroup.com/en-uk/nc/developer-zone/customer-area/ (login is required).

The following versions (and lower) will be discontinued on 01/04/2016:

Product Version Operating System
PTV Mapserver 5.8.0.10 – 5.8.1.42 Windows (x86)
PTV Mapserver 5.6.0.10 – 5.6.0.84 Windows (x86)

Please notice that all versions of 5.7 had already been discontinued on 01/04/2015.

Why are the products being phased out?

The PTV Mapserver SDK is constantly being enhanced. Many new and improved functions have been integrated 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.
