Updates to support dates and preparing for Adobe Commerce 2.4.4
Releasing in March 2022, Adobe Commerce 2.4.4 will help future-proof your business with the latest technologies and features. Built on the newest version of PHP (8.1), it delivers a significant performance boost, rich B2B and B2C capabilities, and enhanced headless support. Moving forward, you’ll be able to spend fewer resources on platform maintenance — as new features are delivered as independent services and upgrades to the core codebase become lighter — and more time on curating exceptional experiences for your customers.
To ensure that you are fully supported to transition to 2.4.4, Adobe Commerce has:
- Shifted the Adobe Commerce 2.3 End of Support (EOS) date to September 8, 2022 to provide additional time to upgrade to 2.4.4. Customers who stay current with the latest Adobe Commerce versions are best protected against security vulnerabilities, remain PCI compliant, and benefit from the latest features.
- Added two security patch releases in August – 2.3.7-p4 and 2.4.3-p3 – to our 2022 release calendar to help customers on those versions stay secure and PCI compliant as they transition to 2.4.4.
- Created paid extended support options for customers on Adobe Commerce versions that use PHP 7.4 (versions 2.3.7, 2.4.0-2.4.3) who need more time to upgrade to 2.4.4 or higher. These options will extend support for one year after the version EOS date and will allow customers to contact our Support team for quality fixes and receive security patches to address vulnerabilities discovered. Please note, customers may still need to take additional measures to stay PCI compliant while on extended support.

Adobe Commerce 2.4.4 provides a strong foundation for the future of your commerce business. Now is the time to start working with your partner or development team to plan your transition. Our 2.4 Upgrade Guide walks through the steps and best practices to follow when upgrading to an Adobe Commerce 2.4 version, and our Upgrade Compatibility Tool will help you analyze and visualize the potential incompatibilities of any upgrade in just minutes, making the planning process much easier and less time-intensive.
Managed Services customers can work with our Customer Engineering team for assistance with several components of the upgrade process, including analysis, upgrading cloud services, quality and user acceptance testing, and production launch.
In addition, we will be hosting a 2.4 Upgrade Workshop on January 26 (8-9:30am PST) in partnership with LiveArea, a Merkle company. This interactive workshop will be technical in nature and will guide you through the 2.4 upgrade process. We welcome and encourage you and your teams to register and join us to prepare for the upcoming 2.4.4 release. The recording will also be available on demand shortly after the event under the Adobe Experience League Tutorials section.
