As you probably know, TDM 2.06 still works on Windows XP.
We had an issue that the latest tdm_update did not boot on Windows XP. There is a fixed version. If you need it, please PM me.
The current idea for the future 2.07 version is to allow running it on Windows XP too.
However, this support cannot last forever.
Windows XP support by Microsoft ended in 2014 (though hacks can probably extend it to 2019).
A lot of libraries (including the ones we use) have already dropped support for Windows XP.
For instance, FFmpeg has dropped support in version 4 released two months ago. There is no prebuilt version of boost for MSVC2017 with XP support. Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 can still build stuff compatible with Windows XP, but it is not clear when this will end.
The idea is to drop Windows XP compatibility by TDM 2.08. This is not the next version yet unreleased, but the one after it.
So I would like to ask everyone: who still runs TheDarkMod on Windows XP?
If yes, then what do you think about dropping Windows XP support? Do you have a plan to migrate to newer version of Windows (or to Linux) ?
