-====== A new version will be released soon  ======+====== Version 0.60 will stop working  ======
-On May 17, 2012 [[|Bing]] announced that **version 2.0** 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 2 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 next version of the service, called Windows Azure Marketplace, will be supported by the new version of BootCaT, which 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:+===== What version of BootCaT am I running? =====
-  * if you have an AppId you should be able to continue using it until August 1, 2012 +To find out what version of BootCaT you're runningsee [[bootcat:help:determine_version|this page]].
-  * if you **don't have** an AppIdyou won't be able to get one that is compatible with the current version of 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 +
- +
-====== BootCaT and Bing are two very different things ====== +
- +
-The authors of BootCaT (mostly people working at the universities of Bologna and Trento) are in no way affiliated with Bing (a commercial search engine controlled by Microsoft).+
