AllFusion Data Model Validator Product Support Announcement
Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA) is continually working to improve our software and services to best meet the needs of our customers. With CA's recent announcement of the general availability of AllFusion Data Model Validator 4.1.4 SP1, we would like to take this opportunity to review the support schedule for currently supported releases of AllFusion Data Model Validator.
With the availability of AllFusion Data Model Validator 4.1.4 SP1, support for Release 1.0 & 4.0 is now scheduled to be discontinued as of September 30, 2005. If users are using other AllFusion Modeling products they must also upgrade to the current version (4.1.4 SP1), as these products must be kept in synch. Also, upgrades to our next product release (post 4.1.4) will require customers running 4.1.4 first, as no direct upgrade path will exist from 1.0 or 4.0.
If you have not yet upgraded to AllFusion Data Model Validator 4.1.4 SP1, we urge you to do so as soon as possible so you can take full advantage of the latest new features and enhancements this release has to offer.

- Publication of documents to help prepare you for your upgrade to AllFusion Data Model Validator 4.1.4 SP1. Those documents can be viewed at https://support.ca.com.
