What will happen to CI3 once CI4 is released to production? - zurtri - 11-13-2018

I understand there is not a brilliantly easy upgrade path from CI3 to CI4.

What will happen to CI3 - will it continue to be developed or will an End of Life date be declared?

I have a major project due to start in the new year and this will help my decision on which CI version to use - I'm currently leaning towards CI4 even though it is still in pre-release.

@zurtri,

I know that there is a post about this question somewhere in the forums. Once I find it, I will add it here.

Here is the link that I found... https://forum.codeigniter.com/thread-70912.html

That is correct - CI3 will be around for a while once CI4 reaches a stable release.

Thanks!

So it looks like CI3 will be supported for about 2 yrs.

That is great.
