RV deprecation blog post

A deprecation you should know about

We recently released our version of RV with support for Qt 5. This is great news because it brings us in line with the industry standard VFX Reference Platform and allows us to continue to support RV with a more effective and sustainable architecture. This exciting upgrade also means we’ll be able to provide even better, more consistent service moving forward. So we may focus our support on Screening Room, this friendly heads up should give you plenty of notice to update to the RV Qt 5. Please note: On 3/25/2020 we will deprecate support for the Screening Room integration in Qt 4.x versions of RV. 

What does this mean for you?
- We will continue to develop for and support Screening Room on Qt 5 and RV 7.5 and up.
- Your version of RV will continue to work after this date with no changes.
- We will stop testing and supporting the Screening Room integration for Qt 4.x versions of RV on that date.  Bugs and regressions for these older RV releases will no longer be addressed. 

Update to the latest version of RV.
