Arcana Scheduler End-of-Life
In 2003, Arcana Development introduced a new, more robust scheduling product,
adTempus, as a replacement for the Arcana Scheduler. At that time we announced
that there would be no further development of the Arcana Scheduler product.
Due to its popularity and large customer base, we have continued to sell and support
the final version of the Arcana Scheduler. However, the age of the Arcana Scheduler
and of the software components with which it is built make continued support of
the software infeasible.
End of Life
Effective immediately, Arcana Development will not make any further updates to the
Arcana Scheduler (including bug fixes) except in very limited circumstances.
Effective March 1, 2008, we will no
longer offer free technical support for the
Arcana Scheduler. Customers will be able to receive limited technical support on
a fee basis, but Arcana Development will not release any software updates (including
Effective September 1, 2008, all formal technical support for the Arcana Scheduler
product will be discontinued, though we will continue to maintain the
discussion forum where users can assist one another.
Arcana Development will continue indefinitely to sell Arcana Scheduler licenses
to existing customers, and to maintain the licensing server which allows customers
to manage their licenses for the product.
We encourage Arcana Scheduler users to migrate to adTempus at their earliest convenience.
adTempus includes an Arcana Scheduler import feature that will allow you to import
your existing Arcana Scheduler jobs into adTempus so you can begin using it right
Effect on Licensing Requirements
The discontinuation of support for the product does not constitute
a release of the Arcana Scheduler into the public domain, and does not entitle users
to make unrestricted use of the software. Arcana Development will continue to enforce
and defend its rights in the Arcana Scheduler product.
