I imagine Struts 2 is being used from the quantity of questions about it. There are migration strategies & tools described.

They are different enough that it's probably easiest learning one at a time.

Better go for Struts 2. I'm sure most of the legacy applications on older Struts versions will soon be migrated to Struts 2 because of it's excellent features and ease of use.
