It’s soon time to say farewell to Cobalt, the “transfer-pump” of files, that will be replaced with a new solution. Cobalt has already served nine (9) years with ultimate robustness and easiness of file transfers which is an excellent lifespan for any IT -solution. Old Cobalt only supports .NET Framework, where Microsoft has announced the end-of-life.

But no worries, Frends already has new modules. So if you are using old Cobalt, this is something that concerns you. There’s no hurry to migrate, but a strong recommendation is to start utilizing the new way to do the same thing.
