A new release for the Magento 1 version is available. The new release provides the installer for the latest Magento versions.
We also added PHP 7.2 syntax check to the travis build pipeline to be prepared for the next Magento 1 release which will be read for PHP 7.2 out of the box.

Magento can distinguish between two types of content:
Private – private content is stored client side and is specific to an individual customer.
There are the cacheable and non-cacheable pages. It’s pretty simple with non-cacheable pages. Such pages are not cacheable and can provide dynamically generated private content, unique for one user.
