No – I have asked a few times but we emailed support and got told it was the case for some time. Would be good I agree to have an official response on it.

IE8 support is still mandatory as long as I know. Personally, I do not check IE8 option when submitting a new item because it just doesn’t look exactly same (good) in IE8 as in the modern browsers. But it is still completely functional and this is important.

IE8 is no longer mandatory.

Check threads here: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/when-was-the-ie8-rule-dismissed/105748?page=1 and here: http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/do-themes-still-need-to-support-ie8/108497#887919

No official response as of yet, but many themes published in last two months are not listing IE8 as supported and envato support also stated that IE8 support is not mandatory (reply to a user ticket).

Great. Old is gold is slogan is no more. We will not support those browser who are not updated at-all.IE-8 support really disgusting. For me I am getting 1.8% visitors who are using IE-8. So for 1.8% visitors we are doing a lot things. I think there need a official notice that IE-8 support is no longer mandatory. Thanks

Bootstrap 3 doesn’t support IE8 and it is already using for templates so how to expect IE8 support in that case. It is obvious that IE8 suport isn’t mandatory anymore.
