Overview

Deprecation timeline

This article identifies features, or capabilities that will no longer be supported and will be removed at some point in the future. Please note that this is not a product roadmap and is subject to change.

Terminology


  • Deprecation refers to features or capabilities that are in the process of being replaced by superior alternatives. Deprecating a feature or capability means that UiPath discourages its use, but the feature continues to be available. Deprecated features or capabilities are often targeted for removal in future versions.
    Deprecated features or capabilities are fully supported and continue to work until we effectively remove them.
  • Removal means a feature or capability is removed and is no longer available for use or supported.
  • Out of support means UiPath will stop issuing patches and hotfixes to a certain product version. Out of support dates do not make the subject of this article. For more details on out of support versions, see Out of support versions.

Windows-legacy compatibility for new projects

Studio 2022.4 Release Notes

Studio 2023.4

:warning: Erratum 21 July 2022: The end of support for creating Windows-legacy projects was initially announced for Studio 2022.10. This change is now planned for Studio 2023.4.

Studio 2022.10 will be the last release to support the creation of projects with the Windows-legacy compatibility. In Studio 2023.4, you will be able to create Windows or cross-platform projects, and only open and edit Windows-legacy projects created in previous versions of Studio. A migration tool will be available starting with Studio 2022.10 to allow you to convert Windows-legacy projects to the Windows compatibility.
