Magnolia end-of-life policy
Magnolia International Ltd. supports each major release of Magnolia for at least two years after the release of the following major version. For example, Magnolia 4.4 is supported for at least two years after the release of 4.5.
When the supported life of a version ends, we announce end of life (EOL) on this page. We do not provide formal support, bug fixes or security fixes for Magnolia instances that run an EOL version of the product. However, we do our best to assist customers who encounter issues with EOL versions of Magnolia. Enterprise customers who run an EOL version can use their support contract to verify issues, ask questions about the product, and get help with migration to a newer, supported version of the product.

Deprecated Web browsers for Magnolia (March 16, 2016)
On January 12, 2016, Microsoft ended support for Internet Explorer versions 8, 9 and 10. Internet Explorer 11 is the last version of Internet Explorer, and will continue to receive security updates, compatibility fixes, and technical support. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/WindowsForBusiness/End-of-IE-support
Following Microsoft's decision, Magnolia ends support for IE 8, 9 and 10. This means we will not fix bugs related to these end-of-life browsers. IE 8, 9 and 10 are no longer supported on any Magnolia version.
While Magnolia will continue to work with these older browsers, we recommend that you follow Microsoft's advice and upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer for security reasons.
Magnolia will continue to support IE 11 and Microsoft's new browser Edge.
Check out the Certified stack page for the list of supported browsers.
