Here is a bad news for InfoPath lovers who enjoying working in InfoPath and a good news for them who do not like to work in InfoPath. "Microsoft in retiring InfoPath".
According to Microsoft, In an effort to streamline our investments and deliver a more integrated Office forms user experience, we’re retiring InfoPath and investing in new forms technology across SharePoint, Access, and Word. This means that InfoPath 2013
is the last release of the desktop client, and InfoPath Forms Services in SharePoint Server 2013 is the last release of InfoPath Forms Services. The InfoPath Forms Services technology within Office 365 will be maintained and it will function until further notice.
If you’re an InfoPath customer, we want to reassure you that we’re working on migration guidance in parallel as we’re building our next generation of forms technology. Until we have more detailed technology roadmap and guidance to share with you, we encourage you to continue using InfoPath tools
. We also want to remind you that the InfoPath 2013 desktop client and InfoPath Forms Services for SharePoint Server 2013 will continue to be supported through 2023 as part of our Lifecycle support policy.
Some Key Points:
- There will be not any further version of the InfoPath desktop client or InfoPath Forms Services.
- The InfoPath 2013 client will be supported through April 2023. InfoPath Forms Services for SharePoint Server 2013 will be supported until April 2023. InfoPath Forms Services in Office 365 will be supported until further notice.

Bye Bye InfoPath !!!
