Dear Solaris (SPARC) Platform Customers:
In order to be responsive to our customers’ changing needs, the Valor Division of Mentor Graphics continually re-evaluates its product strategy to focus on product development that maximizes the value we deliver. Occasionally this means restructuring our product direction toward specific platforms or operating systems and away from others.
As a result of declining demand, the Valor Division will stop support of the Solaris (SPARC) platform after the release of Valor NPI version 9.4 major/minor releases. We are targeting our next major release of the Valor NPI around June of 2014.
We will continue to support Solaris (SPARC) for the Valor NPI version 9.4 major/minor releases, but no Solaris (SPARC) related changes other than critical bug fixes will be provided for Valor NPI versions 9.X released after June of 2014.
Due to this upcoming change, we strongly encourage you to start making plans to move from the Solaris (SPARC) platform as soon as possible.
Mentor Graphics will continue its commitment to provide our customers the finest in product innovation and support by delivering quality products and enhancements running on the Linux and Windows® based computing platforms.
Your success and satisfaction are important to us. If we can answer any questions, or provide any additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
