The developer announced that Classic Shell will be no longer developed because Windows 10 is updated too frequently and because Microsoft is making more difficult to customize Windows: http://www.classicshell.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8147 Last version, 4.3.1, released in August 2017, can be still downloaded from the official website, together with the source code.
The main features are:
Highly customizable start menu with multiple styles and skins
Quick access to recent, frequently-used, or pinned programs
Find programs, settings, files and documents
Start button for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 & Windows 10
Toolbar and status bar for Windows Explorer
Caption and status bar for Internet Explorer
The main Classic Shell package includes translations in 35 languages for things like the toolbar labels, the Explorer UI and the start menu items.
By default things like the settings UI, help files and the installer are only in English. However, also those areas of Classic Shell have been translated to 6 other languages: Chinese, French, German, Italian, Polish & Russian. You can download the installer for these 6 languages from http://classicshell.net/translations .
