Yii 1.1 support was originally announced as "Dec 31, 2015 (may be extended further if needed)". In March we've conducted a survey and since December is close, it's time to officially announce our decision.

Yii 2.0 has been a great success and even though there are still a lot of projects using Yii 1.1 we have to make a decision as our resources are limited. We have been focusing on Yii 2.0 development in the past year and there was not much activity for Yii 1.1.

We have now decided to not accept any features or enhancements for Yii 1.1 anymore. We'll close feature request tickets and related pull requests soon. As we also obviously do not have enough time to fix all the reported bugs ourselves we will review the open tickets and only keep the critical ones open. Most of bugs are open for such a long time that probably affected projects had already implemented workarounds anyway.

So here is the timeline: Yii 1.1 will receive critical bugfixes and PHP 7 compatibility fixes till the end of 2016. After that we will only respond to and fix security issues if any will be found until at least the end of 2018. Even after security support has ended, all the code and documentation will be still available.

If you have any questions or concerns about this, feel free to get in touch with us by commenting here.

So long, Yii 1 - it has been good to know you.
But Yii 2 is so much better :D

I was actually getting worried for a while that Yii would end up like Python ;)

Jokes aside: great news.

thanks guys, this is great news, it gives my existing projects time to reach the point when i would naturally refresh them anyway, rather than having to rebuild them now just to get yii2 support!

Thank you team for the fantastic work and commitment to Yii Framework.
I share the same sentiment as weaverk, this extension will allow many Yii 1.1 projects to reach end of life and be ready for a planned upgrade instead of a forced upgrade for the sake of catching up with latest version.

Yii 1.1 works well but it's not supported anymore so it's a good idea to start with newer better 2.0. Yii 2 is not the same as 1.1. Concepts are similar, code is not.
