Yii 1.1 end of life was scheduled on 2023-12-31, however through support from our community we are pleased to announce extended support until 2026-12-31. This still only applies to security and compatibility fixes. Going forward, we may drop support for outdated PHP versions in order to stay compatible with currently supported PHP versions.
