Hi, with the recent announcement of the fixed March/Sept relelase cycles and the fixed 18 month support period, has the 60 day grace period at the end of the suport lifecycle been dropped or is it included in the 18 month period?

Solution
The 60-day grace period was necessary when the end date was less predictable. With the changes to a predictable release schedule and a fixed support duration, there's no need for this any more. (Effectively, the 60 days is already included in the 18 months.)
