-====== A new version will be released soon  ======+====== Version 0.60 will stop working  ======
-On May 17, 2012 Bing announced that **version 1.0** of their Search API (a fundamental service used by BootCaT) will be decommissioned on August 1, 2012. This means that the current version of BootCaT will stop working on that day.+BootCaT 0.60 will stop working on August 1, 2012.
-Moreover, Bing is no longer allowing users to register for version 1 of the Bing Search API, this means that, while existing AppIds will continue working until August 1, **new users will not be able to obtain an AppId and therefore will not be able to use BootCaT**.+In order to continue using the programyou need to **upgrade to version 0.61** (available on the [[|official BootCaT Website]]).
-The Bing API 2.0 will be supported by the new version of BootCaTwhich is scheduled to be released in the summer of 2012. +Moreover, you will not be able to use your existing Bing AppId: version 0.61 requires a **free** Windows Azure Marketplace Account Keysee [[bootcat:help:search_engine_key|this page]] for more information.
- +
-Summing up: +
- +
-  * if you have an AppId you should be able to continue using it until August 1, 2012 +
-  if you **don't have** an AppIdyou won't be able to get one that is compatible with BootCat, there are only two things you can do: +
-    * borrow an AppId from someone else +
-    * wait for the next version of BootCaT to be released+
 +===== What version of BootCaT am I running? =====
