Deprecation Plan for v3 Printer Drivers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm working with older V3 printer drivers, and would like to know when we MUST release V4 versions of those drivers to be able to install on Windows 10. The "Deprecation Plan for v3 Printer Drivers" was last published April 20, 2015.

    There are a couple of statements which mention dates :

    1. "This means that v3 printer drivers developed and released in 2016 or
    later will not be capable of installing on versions of the operating system
    released in 2016 and later."

    2. "Windows compatibility with v3 drivers released before 2016 will be
    maintained until we have the necessary data to determine that we can safely
    remove support for them without affecting the user print experience."

    Given that this is now November, is there any more concrete date for the cessation of support for the installation of V3 drivers on Windows 10? Early 2016? Or late 2016?

    Thanks, this information would be very useful in our development schedule.
