The much awaited Magento 2.0 is now made public for general availability. Post launch of the anticipated version, we find everything one has to know about it, its upgrade, maintenance of the Magento 1.x support till upgrade, and, etc. If you are an early adopter, it is the right time to upgrade, or else you may have to wait for some more time to know about the bugs and its fixation before opting for its upgrade. However, the Magento people would discontinue the updates for Magento 1.x after 15th November 2015, but will continue its support. Either way, it is better to upgrade the website by 2016, and of course, not in 2017.
