Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ends on 12th April 2016. This means that Microsoft will no longer be producing security updates for this product. Not sure how many Agresso customers are still running SQL Server 2005 but imagine there are still a few. We have dealt with other customers recently that still have some SQL Server 2005 instances.

SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 still have plenty of life left in them with the extended support running until 2019, although mainstream support for them did stop in 2014. However, some software vendors (including UNIT4) have dropped support for 2008 and 2008 R2 for their latest software releases.
