Is there a centralized location Salesforce show planned timelines for interfaces and products to be deprecated?

In particular, we're discussing whether to start working toward "Salesforce1" mobile app(s), whereas rumor has come that Salesforce1 is on track to be deprecated. I cannot seem to find a place that discusses this clearly.

Lightning confuses matters more. We have no near term desire to touch it given so many areas not covered by it yet, including all our current SF plugins.

  • I've asked around ins a few different circles and I've not had anyone yet say they've also heard this. Where did you hear this? Jun 21, 2017 at 9:11
  • I'm beginning to think the local SF "admins" I've talked to confused SF1 with Visualforce versus Lightning, since SF1 itself (also vague understanding to me since Lightning is far to immature for us to contemplate yet, plus NONE of our plugins support it yet, like Rootstock) is apparently going to (or does?) support Lightning and the apparent Apex replacement I ALSO vaguely know about. I'm finding I'm pretty much entirely Classic on my end due to plugins primarily, so I'm pigeonholed.

  • Classic is CLEARLY the Windows XP in a Windows 7/10 world, and I'd like to think there was a timeline at LEAST for when that is no longer supported (I know that not much actual development happens there now as it is). (shrug) Classic-only orgs could find themselves in the next 1? 2? 3 years?... in a pickle if they don't plan accordingly, especially all of their custom work, old plugins, and extensive VF usage (unless a VF-to-Lightning translator happens..? Has happened?)

  • Would not worry too much. There are still orgs chugging along on the original ui. They won't force a move by deprecating just a reduction in new features. If what you have works stick with it

Googling around, I found this Lightning roadmap: https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=lex_roadmap.htm&type=0

  • Link only answers are brittle, as links can go dead over time. Can you find the information in your linked document which is relevant and edit your answer to include it?

  • I would say no in this case. It's far too much information to summarize. EITHER WAY, it's not an accurate answer, unfortulately. Helpful. it shows when things are being replicated in Lightning, not when they are being deprecated in Standard.
