As you may be aware, core support for ColdFusion 10 will end on the 16th of May, 2017. 

This post is to give you a heads-up that post 31st May 2017, the upgrade pricing to upgrade from ColdFusion 10 to ColdFusion (2016 release) will no longer be available. You must pay the full price to procure licenses for ColdFusion (2016 release) if you only have licenses for ColdFusion 10 or below, post 31st May 2017. 

Please note that if you are already subscribed to a Maintenance and Support (M&S) Plan or an Upgrade Plan you already would have access to the latest version and will continue to have access to the latest version till you are subscribed, irrespective of the version of ColdFusion that you are running on production. For instance, you may still be on ColdFusion 10 in production, but are already under an M&S Plan. In this scenario, you have access to the latest version anyway and this has no direct relevance to you even after 31st May 2017.

I made a post last week regarding this and now would like to pass this on to wider audience, as well.

The “Core Support” for ColdFusion 10 ends on May 16, 2017. That means, no more Security patches/updates by Adobe for this version of ColdFusion after mid of May 2017. The detailed timelines are mentioned here in the EOL Matrix.

What is Core Support then? Core support is the time frame wherein the product and the support programs are available. This provides, five years of product support from the general availability date of a product.

General availability  is the date when the product and the support programs are announced and available for purchase.

Extended support provides an additional two years of Platinum Maintenance and Support services after the end of Core Support. Extended Maintenance and Support provides the extra time you may need, to plan your migration to Adobe’s latest technology. Here is the source.

So, if you are on version 10 or prior then, its the correct time for you to upgrade. This will ensure your eligibility of getting Security updates and patches timely from Adobe, for the supported versions of ColdFusion, as and when released.
