Microsoft stretches support for SharePoint Server 2010, Windows 10 1809

Microsoft on Tuesday extended support by six months for more products, telling customers that SharePoint Server 2010 will now receive updates until April 13, 2021 and that Windows 10 1809 will get security fixes until Nov. 10, 2020.

“In response to the COVID-19 crisis and an increase in customer requests, we have decided to revise support for SharePoint Server 2010 products and technologies,’ Mark Kashman, senior product manager on the SharePoint team, wrote in an April 14 post to a company blog.

SharePoint Server 2010 was to have exited support Oct. 13.

Meanwhile, the company also postponed the end-of-support date for Windows 10 1809. “To help ease some of the burdens customers are facing, we are going to delay the scheduled end-of-service date for the Home, Pro, Pro Education, Pro for Workstations, and IoT Core editions of Windows 10, version 1809, to November 10, 2020,” the Redmond, Wash. firm stated in the Windows message center. From June through November, Microsoft will provide vulnerability patches only.

Windows 10 1809, which Microsoft released in November 2018, was originally set to exhaust its support May 12.

Other products also received six-month reprieves, including SharePoint Foundation 2010, Project Server 2010, Windows Server 1809 and the current branch of Configuration Manager 1810. The extensions will continue to provide monthly security updates – and emergency fixes if necessary – as well as both paid and self-help support.
