Windows 2000, XP SP2 losing MS and DC++ support

Win2k leaves its extended support period on July 13 this year, the same date that WinXP SP2 is retired. To receive further official security updates, Windows 2000 users must update to a newer system and WinXP SP2 users must update to SP3.

When even Microsoft stops supporting one of its systems, official DC++ support ceases as well. Both Win2k and WinXP SP2 remain similar enough to the still-supported WinXP SP3 to likely remain compatible with DC++, but bug reports filed from systems running operating systems older than WinXP SP3 may now be ignored; and future changes which undermine support on those systems may be implemented regardless.
