For many years now, we've been enabling compatibility with much older processors through the inclusion of the Legacy version of Corona Renderer. This hasn't come without impact, however - the prime example is that it takes more development and build time to develop two parallel versions.

Improvements in processor technology have moved very quickly, and we've been watching our user statistics over time. Now 98.24% of all installations are on machines capable of running the Full Speed version. We feel that this is the right time to discontinue the Legacy version, allowing the vast majority of our users to benefit from faster development and build times, and a smaller size for the installer.

We'll begin by removing the Legacy version from future Daily Builds from this date onward, and then from the final releases after that. Note that we will continue to support running the Licensing Server on legacy CPUs, but this will be only the Licensing Server (the computer won't be able to be used for rendering.)

This change will only affect a very small number of users - those with an Intel processor that is more than 10 years old, for example - and of course the Legacy option remains in place for all versions up to and including 1.7 Hotfix 2. We apologize to those of you who will be affected and hope you understand that we cannot continue to support older technology indefinitely, when that support does have an impact on develpment and build times for all our users.
