This is just a quick reminder that support for MiKTeX 2.6 and MiKTeX 2.7 ends at the end of the year:
MiKTeX 2.6/2.7 will be removed from CTAN on January 1st, 2011
In other words: December 31st is the last possible date for MiKTeX 2.6/2.7 updates over the Internet.
MiKTeX 2.6/2.7 users are encouraged to switch to MiKTeX 2.9 (to be released in October).
Please vist this page, to learn more information about the MiKTeX release life cycles.

It is time to sync MiKTeX with recent technology boosts (XeTeX character protrusion, LuaTeX). So here we go. This is the MiKTeX 2.9 roadmap.
August 2010: MiKTeX 2.9 Beta
Some upgrades (pdfTeX, XeTeX, TeXworks, MetaPost, BibTeX, ...)
October 2010: MiKTEX 2.9 (general availability release)
December 2010: Yap enhancements
PS: A special thanks to all who have donated to the MiKTeX project. You make it possible!
