Business Client WD ABAP Smart Client No longer supported?


A while back I read about the smart client and how it uses XML to create smarter UI's. This sounded great! However, I just came across SAP NOTE 1157611 which says that this communication protocol is NO LONGER supported. Does anyone know if there is truth to this NOTE?

Excerpt from Note:

Reason and Prerequisites

smart client was only limited for eCATT and will not be used anymore in future releases.

It is not supported and not intended for productive usage.

The XBML protocol (prerequisite) from Web Dynpro was only supported in the following versions:

Web Dynpro Java:

From 7.10 Service Pack 05 only in context of SAP Business ByDesign.

Web Dynpro ABAP:

7.01 (7.00 EHP1) and NetWeaver 7.11 (NW 7.10 EHP1)has never left the "trial status".
