Nice simply overview of bit depth. I'd love to see an explanation of color sampling and bit depth combined given that 8 bit 4:2:2 is possible. How does that help compared to 8 bit 4:2:0 (or does it help at all) given the bit depth hasn't changed.
Funny thing, that headline. There was a time when a developer dropped software it meant it was no longer being developed. Never mind, I'm going to go bust an edit. ;)
