End of 5.1(x) signature support

I'm planning my 5.x to 6.0 migrations for the year and was looking for any official Cisco statements on the End of Life/End of Sale for 5.1(x) without success. How much longer can we expect to receive 5.x signature support?

Re: End of 5.1(x) signature support

Cisco has not yet announced an End of Life or End of Sale (EOL/EOS) dates for 5.1(x).

What this means is that End of Signature support is longer than a year away.

End of signature support will be at least a year after Cisco announces EOL/EOS.

So you still have at least 1 year and possibly longer before you are forced to upgrade to 6.x for signature updates.

Thanks, we were wondering about this also. I hate being forced to upgrade just because Cisco has something "new & OMG magically better".
