Deprecations by version

2022 Winter deprecations

In the upcoming version of TARGIT Decision Suite, please notice the following deprecations.

These versions of the operating system will no longer be supported:

  • Windows Server 2012 R2
    • Due to technical upgrades in the TDS this version of Windows will no longer be supported.
  • Windows 7
    • Due to technical upgrades in the TDS this version of Windows will no longer be supported.

In an effort to focus development resources on new features and data drivers that see a lot of usage, we have decided to deprecate the following drivers from our InMemory and Data Discovery offerings. These are drivers that see very little usage and/or we are not able to obtain test environments to ensure the quality we strive for.

Deprecated drivers for 2022 Winter release

 

2022 Spring, Update 3 deprecations

(Build 22.06.21002, released 22nd June 2022)

  • Dashboards created prior to the TARGIT 2019 version
    • To keep these dashboards you will need to open and save them individually.
    • When saved in the latest version of the TDS, they will no longer be obsolete and will be supported going forward. If you do not save these dashboards in the new format, you will not be able to open them in versions released late this year.
    • This release of the TDS will enable you to identify these dashboards easily:
      • The start menu will offer a menu item showing obsolete (to be deprecated) documents. From here they can be opened and saved in the current format.
      • If you do not use this menu item and open a dashboard created in a TDS version prior to 2019, a dialog will appear indicating that this dashboard will soon be deprecated. You can simply click ok and continue using the dashboard, however to keep the dialog from popping up every time a document is opened, simply verify the content of the dashboard and save it.

 

2022 Spring deprecations

(Build 22.02.25005, released 28th February 2022)

  • Internet Explorer
    • Internet Explorer will no longer be supported for the Anywhere client. Microsoft has stopped support for this browser, and so have we.
  • GIS objects
    • GIS maps are no longer supported due to compatibility issues with the latest .NET 6 Framework.
  • Local cube files
    • Local cub files are no longer supported due to compatibility issues with the latest .NET 6 Framework. This is one of the main reasons for moving our Demo Data into the Cloud as an InMemory database.
  • What-if objects
    • We have decided to retire the What-If object from the 2022 Spring release. Please note that documents containing a What-If object does not load in this release and will have to be recreated.
  • SalesForce plugin
    • The old SalesForce plugin is removed from Data Discovery due to the introduction of the new online driver that is much easier to update and maintain.

 

2021 Summer deprecations

(Build 21222, released 14th June 2021)

 

2021 deprecations

(Build 19184, released 28th October 2020)

  • Impersonation
    • Impersonation is not supported in 2021 ('Effective user' is still supported). The move to the new HTTP communication is a big leap forward and brings many advantages. However, it also means that user credentials to use impersonation are not kept after a user logs in, which is why impersonation will not work in 2021. 
  • 32-bit Windows client
    • Support for the 32-bit Windows client has ended, since most hardware is now running 64-bit and keeping compatibility with 32-bit would slow down the development of the TARGIT Decision Suite.
