Adobe just announced today some changes to those dates and some other pieces worth noting. Don’t worry, as always, ATF has you covered on the basics and will cover everything you need to know here.
New End of Life Date for Magento 2.3
Today, Adobe announced they are extending the End Of Support (EOS) date for Adobe Commerce 2.3.x from April 8, 2022 to September 8, 2022, giving Adobe Commerce merchants additional time to prepare for the new release, and ultimately extra time to schedule an upgrade.
Security Patches 2.3.7-p4 and 2.4.3-p3
Adobe also announced that they have released two new security patches that aim to keep merchants secure and PCI compliant until they can transition to 2.4.4. The two new patches, 2.3.7-p4 and 2.4.3-p3, will be available on Adobe’s 2022 release calendar in August of this year. With these two new patches, Adobe will be providing paid extended support options for customers on these versions to continue to receive security updates and support, giving them even more flexibility to make the leap to 2.4.4.
