Full Version: Windows 7 support

Just wondered, considering MS are stopping Security updates for Windows 7 next year, are there plans to end support for Windows 7?
Custom support will be available if someone is willing to pay for it until January 2023 and longer if they are willing to pay more.

I doubt if GIP is going to be affected.
Formally, Windows 7 support will be dropped when MS drops support in January. Practically, there won't be any effect on get_iplayer until something prevents one of get_iplayer's dependencies from running on Windows 7. If that happens, we won't fix it. In that event, if Windows 7 compatibility can be maintained by a manual installation using obsolete dependencies, anyone is free to post the necessary instructions, though of course we won't support such installations.
