So far, nothing has changed, XP is still supported.  I intend to pull
the plug at one point this year, but it also depends on how much time I
have.  Continuing support for XP and Server 2003 is really becoming a
burden.  It requires to code and maintain workarounds which are not
required anymore in newer OSes, so I really would like to get rid of
that stuff.
