Magento 1 to be run until June 2020
For the the past month some rumor were moving out in the air is that the magento 1 program will end this November. That was a false rumor which makes their customer goes crazy. But it was clear out by the company itself. This news was false which was based on the original based news such as November 2018 where the life of magento 1 is goes to end. This news was totally fake. Magento gave its customer relief y extending the date to 18 months later. It is the general policy that they will announce their customer 18 months before they end the magento 1 program.
Magento 1 is going to stay for long period of time.
Magneto doesn’t provide the customers a proper date for past 15 months. That was irresponsible attitude towards their users. All of them have the same questions that for how long the software remains/ and for how long they have to wait for it. As they have to cover the security patches and customer dealing. Magento open website clarify the whole issue by extending the date to june 2020. They published their news on the official page as;
“For Magento Commerce 1, we are providing software support through June 2020. Depending on your version, software support may include both quality fixes and security patches.
A best news for the previous magento 1 user
For Magento Open Source 1, they are providing software security patches through June 2020 to ensure those sites remain secure and compliant.
Please be aware that security maintenance applies only to Magento Open Source software and does not apply to third party extensions or customizations.
Maintenance of extensions, customization or other modifications to the Magento codebase, including compliance with security and privacy standards (PCI, SOC, ISO, etc.), are the express responsibility of the merchant.”
Many merchants will already have upgraded to Magento 2 and Magento continue to encourage migrating to their newest offering.
