for store owners
Great opportunity for developers
Supporting and assisting in the development of Magento Community stores will become a troublesome task without any help. Adobe and extension developers will be providing limited assistance with their Magento 1 products. That’s why you need to consider the following:
OpenMage is the community project that will help you get your hands on stable Magento builds with fixed bugs and vulnerabilities. Adobe will be removing all documentation and download links for Magento 1.
We integrate improvements directly from the community, meaning that if you have fixed any bugs or have improvements ready - submit a pull request. After a review, your PR will be used to keep Magento CE alive in the new version.
Magento 1 has a chance to become a freeware platform developed and supported solely by the community and caring for the community needs. That’s one of the ideas behind starting this project and sharing it with the world.
Your expertise and skills as a Magento 1 developer, more than ever, can help shape the future of Magento 1. Make pull requests if you have bugs fixed or have any improvements to the latest Magento CE code. Even small things can make significant changes.
About the platform
Magento Community is one of the few Open Source ecommerce solutions on the market, which means that the code is open for anyone to use for free and apply any changes necessary. Combining it with the rich out of the box features available makes it an excellent start for a complex online store solution.
Product attribute management, complemented with customer details, topped up with the SEO tools, secure payments, and complete inventory management is what makes Magento a great starter tool. All the features can be further enhanced with the help of extensions - modules that are installed atop of Magento to provide additional functionality.
About the community
Magento community has over 800k members around the globe, including users at forums, developers, enthusiasts, and evangelists who have been with Magento since the beginning and can offer robust expertise. Yearly events in different parts of the world unite development agencies, Magento partners, and extension developers.
A special part of the Magento community belongs to the extension developers, which take Magento store experience to the level above with performance. Extension developers made Magento Marketplace possible, where store owners may find new looks for their stores, missing functionality, or discover powerful marketing solutions.
Magento 1 End Of Life
OpenMage LTS is designed to take place of Magento 1
and benefit its community
After its End of Life, Magento 1 will not be available for the general public. Adobe will remove all download links, links to the documentation and will stop releasing patches even for critical bugs and security issues. That’s where OpenMage comes in, keeping Magento CE healthy and up to the current standards.
End of Life also means that all Magento 1 extensions are removed from Magento Marketplace; however extension developers will still offer them, probably with great discounts. This developed infrastructure is another point towards staying with Magento CE.
