This is an important announcement for all users of Affinity
Back in 2015 Microsoft introduced its new web browser know as Edge. Edge was a direct replacement for Internet Explorer (IE) and since then Microsoft has been encouraging anyone using IE to migrate to Edge. Users can of course switch to use any other modern browser such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari.
Microsoft is winding down support for IE and support for this is tied to the operating system you are using. You can read more about this here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle/faq/internet-explorer-microsoft-edge. As IE is an old legacy product which is no longer being maintained or upgraded by Microsoft it means we are dropping all support for IE within Affinity from the 1st July 2020.
What does this mean for you?
It probably doesn't mean much other than you having to switch to one of the browsers mentioned above. This is something you may have already done due to other systems dropping support for IE from their platforms. If you haven't already switched your browser from IE to an alternative before the 1st July 2020 it means if you try to access Affinity you will not be able to and you will be prompted to download an alternative browser.
