Hi Billy,

> The upcoming Phenix 1.14 official release will still have installers for CentOS 5 and Windows 32-bit, but since CentOS is no longer supporting CentOS 5, and RedHat is only supporting RHEL5 through their Extended Life Cycle Support Add-On (until November 30, 2020), we are planning on deprecating CentOS 5 support (32-bit and 64-bit). In addition, we are planning on deprecating 32-bit support for Windows because only a few percent (< 5% for both Windows and CentOS 5) of our Phenix downloads are for 32-bit versions.

If you deprecate CentOS 5, will you start to support CentOS 7? I mean right now, nightly tests run CentOS 5 & 6. Do you plan to make it 6 & 7? I am asking so that I can start planning for Bruker among other things…

Best wishes,
