Unsupported Platforms. The following platforms have not been verified to work. Platforms listed for version 6.3.x and later should also work with 7.1.3, but we did not receive explicit confirmation of such at the time this list was compiled. We include these here to let you know that these platforms could be supported if given some attention.
