I certainly hope these new
changes do not require Windows 10?
AND why did I not receive an
email about the changes?

I never email people about future changes to
JTAlert, apart from the Test team.
Sometimes I will drop hints, in this group, about upcoming new
features, changes or fixes.
I don't normally publish the release notes for a new release
ahead of time. Today's announcement of the NET5 requirement and
publishing of the release notes was done due to the large amount
of changes and to give people a chance to install the NET5
runtime ahead of time.
If you're still using Win 7 (why?) and don't have Extended
Security Updates installed then you're likely out of luck and
will have to stay with JTAlert 2.16.17. Info on getting Extended
Security Updates for Win7 can be found here...
The list of .NET 5 supported Operating Systems can be found
The NET 5 requirement for JTAlert 2.50.0 and all future versions
is a done deal, there is no going back. There is a lot of new
code that is dependent on NET 5 functionality.
