Magento announced today a long-term strategy for the Magento franchise.
According to the post:
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. Please review our Magento Software Lifecycle Policy to see how your version of Magento Commerce 1 is supported.
and regarding the open-source edition (formerly known as the Community Edition):
For Magento Open Source 1, we are providing software security patches through June 2020 to ensure those sites remain secure and compliant. Please visit our Legal Terms page and review our Magento Open Source Software Maintenance Policy to see which versions of Magento Open Source 1 continue to receive software security maintenance.
Therefore, it is of vital importance that e-commerce stores who are currently using Magento 1 begin the process of transitioning. This could be either via an upgrade to Magento 2, or via migration to another cart provider.
