After long weeks of silent work, I'm really happy to share with you, this new WinReducer Project information about the future of the WinReducer "ES-Series" and "EX-Series" software.
I confirm that all WinReducer Software will continue to be developed in the future, with many changes, modifications and improvements :

With Markus and KrX (Forum Moderators), we are working to organize, before the end of the year, a new Bugs Hunting Session to get your findings or bugs reports to solve them in a real-time process.
==> In the meantime, that you would be wonderful if you might check and update your forum bugs posts to check if the bugs are still present or reproducible or if the forum bugs posts need to be closed ... thank you very much !
5 - WINREDUCER EX-110
During the last weeks, many users asked me when I will release a WinReducer Software for Windows 11 ... so today I can announce the official date for the first public version : 05 October 2021
WinReducer EX-110 will be a dedicated software for Windows 11 ... there will be also a dedicated Forum part for it.
6 - WINREDUCER SERIES - v4.x.x.x [Updated on 23 October 2021]
On 05 October 2022, more than 6 years after the official release of all WinReducer "ES-Series" and "EX-Series" software ... all your software will begin to evolve to become one entity : "WinReducer Series".
All software and categories will be entirely reworked with major changes (new design, new U.I., new U.X., new removing engine, new functionalities, ...), and will be regrouped by themes (one software for one theme) :
- ES-Series : acronym for "Easy and Simple" software, to achieve easy tasks with a high level of efficiency
- EX-Series : acronym for "Expert" software, with all options to create your WinReduced 7, 8.1, 10 and 11 ISO (Windows 8.0 will not be supported)
- MM-Series : acronym for "Multimedia" software, with all options for reading and converting, all audio and video files using a Media Center graphical user interface
- PR-Series : acronym for "Professional" software, with all options to create your WinReduced 10 or 11 and Server ISO, as well as your MS Office ISO [the "PR-Series" name may be subject to changes]
- ... more will be available in the future !
==> All these new "WinReducer Series - v4.x.x.x" software will introduce a new software architecture to bring even more functionalities for the future !
==> All valid serial numbers from WinReducer "ES-Series" and "EX-Series" v1.x.x.x, v2.x.x.x and v3.x.x.x will be still valid with "WinReducer Series - v4.x.x.x" according to the information which will be available in the WinReducerOS website (not yet available).

The countdown is started for all these WinReducer Software for both the Limited Support (L.S.), the End Of Support (E.O.S.) and the End Of Life (E.O.L.) :

==> Be careful, the development of all functionalities introduced in these software will continue to evolve in the new "WinReducer Series - v4.x.x.x" development branch, they will be simply reorganized differently ! Only the software naming will not be used anymore.
