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.
Please note that we removed “mcrypt” from list of required PHP modules. This is also needed to be prepared for PHP 7.2.

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. The cacheable pages are being served by reverse proxies to more than one user. And it’s very important to avoid caching of the user-specific data on these pages.
