I'd have expected some up-to-the-minute news. Not sure what has been updated yesterday. SEC 5.4.1 is still listed with the retirement date 31 October 2018 instead of a more eye-catching Retired (31 October 2018). Similarly SAV for Windows 10.6 (though SEC and Endpoint behave differently).It's also not obvious why 10.7 is considered 10.8's progenitor and not 10.6's descendant. 10.7 is somewhat in-between: OT1H it was needed for EXP/Clean, OTOH 10.7.2 is the final development of 10.6, still available with the Extended XP/2003 Support but with a definitive retirement date slightly over one year ahead. But I'm probably nit-picky.
In reply to QC:
Thanks for pointing out the SEC 5.4.1 retirement date - I will have it notified to the concerned team.
The KBA was updated with the retirement date for SEC 5.5.0 from 31 Oct 2019 to 31 Jan 2020.
Retirement calendar for Sophos Endpoint & Server products - Updated for Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage, Sophos Anti-Virus Dynamic Interface (SAVDI) & Other products/features.

Hello Gowtham Mani.
am I correct that this spells End Of Life for the mentioned products? For SEC Patch and Endpoint SCF it's not really a surprise.
