MCSD Product Lifecycle
As with any projects involving software or databases, the products of our division often evolve through different stages of development and maintenance. Depending on the progress of the work and available resources, a project may be in a state of active development, or be finished or even obsolete, and any state in between.
We define the following four stages in the product lifecycle to assist you in assessing the stability and maintenance level of various software and database resources to be found on our site. Each project should include an status indicator using one of these keywords.
