No more Domino versions of Web Content Manager

Another drive-by snippet from the Developer Lab – I asked if any further development was being done on the Domino version of Web Content Manager and the answer was no. It is still supported and they will fix bugs as needed, but no active development is being done on it anymore. Effectively it is now end-of-life. I don’t recall exactly what he said, but I got the impression that support should continue for another 18-24 months, and that a formal conversion tool will be available to take content from it to the Portal version. A conversion of design would not be a part of the tool, and rightly so, as it probably wouldn’t be relevant as the Portal UI framework is significantly different from what would be built for a standard website.
