Microsoft has just published their SHA1 deprecation policy, according to which Windows will stop accepting SHA1 signed ceritficates in SSL by 2017. In short, Windows will stop accepting certificates signed with SHA1 in SSL starting from 1 January 2017, which means that most CA should stop issuing them one year earlier. Code signing certificates without</strong timestamp will be blocked starting from 1 January 2016, but those timestamped will continue to be accepted.
