End of Life

Java 7 End of Life Notice
Snowbound's policy is to move to the latest Java Long Term Support release 18 months after its original release date, at which point we will no longer support previous releases. This means in March 2020, we will be moving to only support the latest Java Long Term Support Release, Java 11. The last VirtualViewer build to support Java 7 will be v5.2.
