The EOL spells the demise of this once inspirational application, however, don't worry, you won't need to rush out and upgrade to SugarCRM Professional quite yet.
Here are facts you need to know:
SugarCRM CE – SugarCRM Community Edition is one of the longest standing Open Source CRM applications. In 2013/2014 it was announced that SugarCRM would no longer be releasing Open Source versions of the community edition, it would be a bug fix only. So, for the last 3 years there have been no new features, innovations or version releases, just security and bug fixes.
What does EOL mean? End-Of-life means that the specific version of the software will no longer be supported or maintained by its authors. Once the EOL date has passed (15th of July 2107) Sugar will no longer provide any updates or support for the product.
