Dropping support for Windows XP and Server 2003
The 7.0 release of The Server Framework, which is likely to be released early next year, will no longer support Windows XP or Windows Server 2003.
The 6.6.x releases will be the last to support these operating systems. Release 6.6.3, is due shortly and is a minor bug fixing release. We may release subsequent 6.6.x bug fix releases but no new development will occur on the 6.6 branch.
Removal of support for these operating systems allows us to clean up the code considerably and to remove lots of code that's required purely to work around 'interesting' twists in various Windows APIs pre-Vista.
