Post From: Confused about "new contracts" and System Notification message at SC startup

I've been SC user now about 2 months. The SC version I started with was 997. Now it seems to be 1077. I have not updated my software version myself, so how this may have happened? It's just fine, I guess, but weird as I didn't do it myself.

Recently there's been a lot of mentioning about changing to new CME contract symbols etc. on Startup screen (System Notification Message). I've ignored it as my setup has been working just fine, I guess. Now I started to hesitate as I've noticed more and more messages to upgrade to latest version (why??) and new parallel sets of CME/Nymex contracts in the Chart list.

Ok, I now use SC 1077, CTS T4 and trade Crude Oil (CME/Nymex), symbol CL.CME_20140500_CLK4.CME_NY. Is this setup still OK???? I'm thoroughly confused... do I HAVE TO switch to some new CL symbol and upgrade my SC to something latest version? Or am I fine with my current setup? I don't use any continuous contract. I simply trade the CL contract that has the biggest volume at any given day.

And yes, I've read a lot of messages since March 10 on SC support board about some CME (serious?) contract issues with CTS etc, and the more I read the more confused I got as I have no idea if that was relevant to my setup. Or was it?
