At least they gave a little more warning this time. Anyways, it looks like the Support Timeline matrix has been updated and R65 will stop being supported in March of 2011. That date is still a ways off, but it might be good to start planning for an upgrade. We are already seeing that some of the newer Open Server hardware is not supported under R65. If you are purchasing newer hardware for SPlat, there is a good chance it will only be supported in R70. Now is probably a good time to take a look if you will stay with Open Servers, or move to Check Point Power-1 or UTM appliances.
