Chrome did it already, the new browser Edge never will support it and now also Firefox will cancel the plugin interface NPAPI by the end of next year.
I'm really looking forward to Windchill 11 and I hope PTC will present a HTML5 Creo View and the end of the Java Applets...
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thank you. I know a few companies who have even upgrade to 10.2 on hold, to move directly to 11 because of this reason. Hope we will have this fixed in 11.
One of my consultants has just participated in a meeting of Windchill developers in Barcelona.
Here PTC announced that also 10.2 M040 should address/solve this issue.
We will have a 10.2 M040 datecode? Never knew about it. I assumed M030 will be the last date code and we will recieve only CPSs. Thank you for that info.
There are currently no plans for a Windchill release 10.2 M040. I am interested to know where that information came from so I can correct the source.
Darryn, as I wrote the information came from Barcelona meeting.
I don't know who from PTC gave this information.
But I have to partially correct myself, because it is not confirmed a 10.2 M040, but it is under evaluation.
I apologize for the misunderstanding but, at the same time, I would like to take this opportunity to point out that if there won't be a 10.2 M040, PTC customers will be forced to use only one browser to access Windchill.
Thanks for your attention.
In regard to applets, many will be replaced in Windchill 11.0, though a few will still remain. Article CS160578 can be used to track which applets will be replaced in which release.
This CS sheds some light on the way forward regarding Creo View and NPAPI deprecation in Firefox: https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/case_solution.jsp?n=CS237817
Firefox ends the support for NPAPI in the version 52!
