It's most certainly not EOL/EOS.  Prime Collaboration Provisioning 10.5 
was just released earlier this year, most of the earlier versions have 
been EOLed, but not 10.0 and 10.5.  10.0/10.5 do support CUCM 8.6, but 
one thing you might want to seriously consider is that the Standard 
version of CPCM which supports a single 10.X cluster is included with 
CUCM 10.X.  The Advanced version supports multiple clusters, but for 
basic MACD work, the Standard version included with 10.X would work.  
Might be worth considering financially the costs of upgrading to 10.X to 
get CPCM Standard for free instead of the large price tag to get 
Advanced to be able to stay on 8.6.
