    Upcoming END OF LIFE announcement for WranglerView

    ===============================================================================

    Beginning with the 6.8 release, WranglerView will be entering a "sunset"
    phase. It will continue to ship until Qube v7.0.

    WranglerView will not have any major new features or functionality added to
    this or future versions, and any changes will be limited to bug fixes or
    minor feature additions necessary to facilitate customer needs
    until they can make the transition over to the new Qube UI.

    From Qube 7.0 onwards, all major functionality encompassed in WranglerView is
    anticipated to have been ported over to the framework that the current
    ArtistView is built on. With some additional features added along the way,
    this will be known as the new Qube UI.

    There may be new minor features added to the administration and
    wrangler-centric functionality of WranglerView as needed until such
    time as the new Qube UI achieves parity with current
    WranglerView functionality.
