You can continue to use old Lunchpage until 2015/05/10. It is supported.

- You can run both launchpage and launchpad in parallel
- If you have not modified UI code, new UI works as out of the box with additional role assignment, etc. Backend configuration is still same.
- If you have modified UI code, you should migrate your code changes in UI extension project using UI extension points. Please see Extensibility.
