They delivered their ultimatum well before that, true. They could have carried it out at any time. That they didn't until after Phoenix was released should tell you quite a lot. They knew for quite a while that Phox wasn't giving in, and that we were working to release Phoenix.
Though presumably if LL announced that they were blocking older versions, possibly even sending out an email to everyone (as they do for far more trivial matters) more people would get to know. It's a bullet they and you are going to have to bite sooner or later, after all, as you argued back in December.
Is it? What makes you think they're going to do anything other than just what they've said: let older versions continue to run, but not allow new versions with that function in it?
