We have added lot of features and enhancements in 9.x platform releases. We
are pre-announcing end of support for 8.1 and 8.2. Here are the list of key
features you would get if you upgrade to 9.x.

64-bit server components: Windows Server Components (Server, Console, Web
Reports, FillDB, and BESAdmin) are now 64-bit Windows applications. This
improves performance for large IEM deployments

Enhanced Security: Disable SHA-1 signatures in favor of SHA-256, Support
for TLS 1.2 and root certificate key strength increased from 1024 to 4096

Common Criteria security certification:  Increased server audit logging and
configurable attributes for Console and Web reports

New agent inspectors: SSID for WiFi inspector, SQLite inspectors, JSON
inspectors, SHA-2 inspectors, TCP/UDP port inspectors (supported on Windows
7+, Windows Server 2008+), Inspectors for tracking long Fixlet evaluation
times, SHA-2 inspectors

Granularity of Access Control: This allows NMO users to manage actions
