Pervasive 11 status and Windows 10

In light of the release of Pervasive 12 (PSQL v12) late last year (see Actian releases Pervasive 12: first look), Actian has as of June 30, 2015 stopped selling new user copies of PSQL v11.

One day later, however, a v11 patch was issued on July 1, 2015 (Pervasive PSQL V11.30 install build 11.31.073 read me file).   Nothing in that patch appears to be of great importance for our user base.

While official support for v11 from Actian is planned to continue until July 1, 2016, Actian does not plan to support v11 on Windows 10, scheduled to be formally released by Microsoft very soon.   That timing is awkward.  It is nonetheless likely that v11 will work at the very least in connection with Windows 10 clients and in workgroup configurations.  

PSQL releases are normally compatible if within one major release of each other and typically do work on the "next" major Windows operating system release (but not always).   Whether v11 will also work on "Windows 10 server" remains to be seen, but a release of server technology based on Windows 10 is not yet imminent.

End users are always advised to wait until the first service pack (SP1) of a new operating system or database engine is released before migrating to that release, absent extenuating circumstances.
