As we get closer to M1 End of Life (EOL) on June 30, 2020, we’d like to give our extension developers and Tech Partners some extension specific information to prepare for the changes.
M1 EOL Timeline for Magento Marketplace and Developer Portal
June 4, 2020 – Notifications on marketplace.magento.com and developer.magento.com will go up reminding all users of upcoming deadlines for M1 EOL.
June 17, 2020 – Developer Portal will stop accepting and publishing M1 extensions.
June 30, 2020 – Official M1 End of Life date.
July 7, 2020 – Removal of all M1 extension listings from marketplace.magento.com. Extension will be available on repo.magento.com until 8/6/2020.
August 6, 2020 – Removal of M1 extensions from repo.magento.com
What M1 EOL means for merchants and developers.
No quality fixes or security patches provided by Adobe for M1 after EOL.
M1 downloads will not be available.
M1 extensions will be removed from the Magento Marketplace store and M1 version selections will be removed from the store search.
M1 extensions will be removed from our Repository (repo.magento.com).
M1 documentation will be removed from Magento Documentation sites.
What Extension Developers can do now to prepare for M1 Extension removal.
Communicate with their users that M1 EOL is approaching and M1 extensions will no longer be available on Magento’s Marketplace and Repository.
Prepare for extension removal from the Marketplace store.
If you plan to support M1 clients and M1 extensions, make plans to host and sell the extensions outside of Magento’s Marketplace.
Sample communication to use with our customers:
“Magento 1 will reach end of life on 6/30/2020. This M1 extension will be removed from the Magento Marketplace store on 7/7/2020. If you plan to keep this extension, we recommend that you download it as it will not be available in the Magento Repository after 8/6/2020.”
