For the past 15 years, CATIA V4 has been a major version used by many customers around the world for major industrial programs. Regulatory reasons in certain industries imply customers to maintain CATIA V4 in operations even if they have standardized with V5 and V6. Therefore, Dassault Systèmes has confirmed its decision to continue the support of CATIA V4 Release 2.5 until December 31st, 2011.

CATIA Version 4 Release 2.5 will be supported beyond December 31st, 2009 (former end of support) until the December 31st, 2011 for customers who are current with their standard support charges. The support scope will remain the same as previously experienced, except for defect management, which will be strictly limited to blocking production defects, escalated via the Critsit process. During this period, Dassault Systèmes customers will continue to benefit from Know-How enablement, and Distribution & download.
