It's looking as though the next release of DirectQ is going to be the last one that can fully guarantee support for Windows XP.
Bottom line is that I'm soon going to be in a position where I just no longer have access to a Windows XP machine for testing on. In those circumstances I'm not really going to be able to fire up XP, run tests, debug, etc. I can't stand over DirectQ on XP as a result of that.
What I do still have is an XP VM that I can use, but obviously - because it's a VM - it won't be in any way representative of a real physical machine. It does mean that I can and will continue to ensure that it will at least work on XP for as long as is reasonably possible, but matters such as performance will be something that I won't be able to guarantee.
Farewell, Old Shep.
