I have learned that Microsoft is phasing out (has terminated?) support for ActiveX controls in their Edge internet browser.

Are there any plans to phase out or terminate support for the COM technologies that underpin ActiveX controls? Do Windows programmers need to eliminate or replace use of COM objects and interfaces in our code?

If so, please provide links to sites with more details re. the time-line of the phase-out and recommended replacement technologies. If not, please send links to sites that indicate Microsoft's ongoing support for COM technologies.

Thank you.
