Every Typefi product has a lifecycle. The lifecycle begins when a product is released and ends when it is no longer supported. Typefi provides a minimum of two years of product support from the general availability date. Typefi supports Adobe® Creative Cloud® and Microsoft® Office releases on a rolling, three major version, schedule—support for new Adobe or Microsoft releases will become available within 90 days of their general availability.
What does End of Support mean?
End of support means that Typefi no longer provides technical support, including product or security updates, for all derivatives of a product or product version (that is, localized versions, minor upgrades, operating systems, or dot and double-dot releases).
What should I do now?
You may continue to use Typefi products after they are no longer supported, but Typefi will no longer provide updates or address any existing bugs or security issues in the software. Because of this, it is strongly recommended that you update to the latest versions. This will ensure that you benefit from all new functional enhancements and security updates, in addition to support for newer operating systems. Technical support for end of life products is also discontinued.

Third-party compatibility matrix
Adobe InDesign comes as two products: InDesign, a desktop application for designing page layouts for print or digital distribution; and InDesign Server, a service for programmatically creating automated documents based on what you've created with InDesign. For purposes of product support, "InDesign" refers to both InDesign (desktop) and InDesign Server.
Typefi supports Adobe Creative Cloud releases on a rolling, three major versions, schedule—support for new Adobe releases will become available within 90 days of their general availability.

‡ One of the benefits of Office 365® is that Microsoft provides new features for Office apps on a regular basis. The schedule for these updates depends on your selected update channel. Typefi only certifies compatibility with Microsoft Word 2016 on the Semi-annual update channel. While the Monthly (formerly "Current") channel provides new or updated features, and security and non-security updates at least once each month, these releases are only supported until the next monthly channel release is available and may break compatibility with Typefi Writer. For these reasons, Typefi strongly recommends the Semi-annual (formerly "Deferred") update channel that also provides new or updated features, and security and non-security updates, but on a slower cadence of two (formerly three) updates each year while extending support to 18 months (starting from first release).

† Apple does not publish a lifecycle policy for macOS. Instead, support for macOS is linked to the Mac hardware, which is supported for 5 years after the product is no longer manufactured (see Vintage and obsolete products). Apple security updates are generally only provided for the current version of macOS and two previous versions (see Apple security updates).
