Oops…Magento® (free version) is going to end of life, It’s kinda tricky to understand!
Let’s see how?
It’s since a topic in the discussion whether will Magento continue with the free open-source products or not. With this email, even we got confused if it’s connected to Magento 1 or Magento Free Open Source Approach. It may put you as a merchant or agency partner in worry.
Magento® had added
“A free version of Magento which will sunset in June 2020, and we want to ensure your business is prepared.”
Fortunately or maybe, unfortunately, it’s all about Magento 1 referencing Magento 1 community edition and Magento 1 commerce product. They have made it official announcement earlier that Magento 1 will no longer receive any new release updates or security releases after June 2020.
Let’s take a look at the Twitter post…

It’s more like a promotional email for Magento Commerce 2 so that merchants to subscribe & can check how Magento 2 Commerce solution can boost their E-commerce business. So there isn’t anything to worry about Magento open source approach nor has there been any official statement about the ending of the open source approach till now.
