End of support and migration options for IBM Lotus Symphony
When does support end for IBM Lotus Symphony and what migration options are available?
IBM Lotus Symphony 3.0.1 was released in January 2012 and is the final version of Lotus Symphony from IBM. Support for Lotus Symphony ends on 30 April 2015.
IBM has contributed the Lotus Symphony code to the open source Apache OpenOffice project. Apache OpenOffice, the leading open-source office software suite, includes word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation software very similar to Lotus Symphony and supports the same open document formats (ods, odt, odp) supported in Symphony.
Beginning with Apache OpenOffice 4.0, Lotus Symphony code has begun to be included in Apache OpenOffice. Lotus Symphony users who want to migrate to new versions can download Apache OpenOffice for free at http://www.openoffice.org/.
If you experience issues using Lotus Symphony on versions of operating systems that were released after Lotus Symphony 3.0.1 was released, such as the Microsoft Windows 8.1 upgrade released in late 2013, the recommended course of action is to download and migrate to the current version of Apache OpenOffice software for free at http://www.openoffice.org/.
