Microsoft will stop publishing its developer-focused MSDN Magazine this November, after a 19-year run. The magazine, which started out as two separate titles -- Microsoft Systems Journal and Microsoft Internet Developer -- was first printed in 2000, with an issue devoted entirely to the Windows operating environment.

An announcement on the MSDN website asks "How far have we all come since then?" and notes that as is the case with many things nowadays, it's time for MSDN to move online. While the physical magazine will be retired, back issues will be digitally archived, and the title's role as a resource will continue through channels such as Microsoft Docs and The Visual Studio Blog. Subscribers, meanwhile, can expect a pro-rated refund check in the mail after the final issue arrives in November.
