The Magento 1 Platform Will Reach “End-of-Life” in June 2020

What to expect next?

Magento Commerce/ Enterprise Edition:
This range covers six Magento Commerce versions, originally released between 2010-2014.

The latest of these Magento Commerce versions (1.13 and 1.14) will be supported with security patches and potentially quality fixes too. Older versions (1.9, 1.10, 1.11 and 1.12) will benefit from software security patches until June 2020; with the sole intention for these versions to remain secure and compliant during phase-out, there will be no quality fixes supplied.

Magento Open Source/ Community Edition:
For those eCommerce retailers operating using Magento Open Source 1 (formerly known as Community Edition), versions 1.5-1.9, Magento will continue to provide security patches until June 2020. These security patches are a critical requirement, and will not be accompanied by any further quality fixes.

Views from JH

Jamie Huskisson, our CEO at JH, expresses his view that Magento have been ethical and empathetic to merchants in their support and clarity around end of life:

“It’s great to see Magento moving on from Magento 1, but at the same time providing ample support time to Magento customers to make the move. Nobody will be caught off guard by this, the dates have been rumoured for quite some time and they align with the already announced Magento Commerce dates. This means no merchant has to rush into decisions on their move to Magento 2, and can pick the right Solution Partner for them in the next phase of their website.”

Our Lead Ecommerce Solutions Specialist took to her YouTube channel with the clearest of end-of-life explanations we’ve seen.
