InfoPath Being Retired

http://blogs.office.com/2014/01/31/update-on-infopath-and-sharepoint-forms/

The last project I was working on before I left my last job was a complex InfoPath “app” that had conditional forms, logic, workflows-the works. I was super proud of what I built because it really was a little application, and I built it, and I am no programmer. Since I work exclusively with internet-facing sites at my current gig, I have had to say bye to InfoPath, but hearing that it is being retired makes me a little sad. It will be interesting to see what new solution Microsoft is coming out with to take InfoPath’s place. What I really want to see in regards to SharePoint is a internet-only version with features that make sense for anonymous access sites. It is so painful to not be able to use so much of the power of SharePoint due to those features needing authentication.
