Drupal Innovation in 2024: the Contribution Health Dashboards

22 January 2024 @ 3:32 pm

2023 has been an eventful year, full of ideas, discussions and plans regarding innovation, where Drupal is heading, and, in our case, how the Drupal Association can best support. On top of that, you may have already heard, but innovation is a key goal for the Drupal Association. Drupal is nothing but a big, decentralized, community. And before we can even think of how we can innovate, we need to understand how contribution actually happens and evolves in our ecosystem. And one of the things we agreed early on was that, without numbers, we don’t even know where we are going.  For that reason in 2024 we want to introduce you to part of the work we’ve been doing during the last part of 2023 to make sure that we know where we are coming from, we understand where we are going and how the changes we are doing are affec

Introducing: the bounty program

16 January 2024 @ 1:29 pm

As part of my role in the Drupal Association, we are trying to find new ways to unleash innovation. Innovation as it happens is a key goal for the Drupal Association. What surprised me when I started with the Drupal Association was to meet companies that were contributors, (some of them known for being long-time contributors) or that are very interested in contributing, but then not knowing how they could maximize their contributions or even where they should be contributing to. I don’t think that these are a few isolated cases, as it’s not the first time I've seen this trend. Back when I was working for a 100+ developer consultancy firm there was a big corporate push to increase our contribution to open source. And contribute we did. We started “Pizza Fridays”, which meant we were spending Fridays c

Drupal 10.2 is now available

15 December 2023 @ 6:27 pm

New in Drupal 10.2 The second feature release of Drupal 10 improves content modeling, block management, menu and taxonomy organization, and permission administration. New options to sanitize file names make it possible to clean up the names of uploaded files, and media item revisions now have a dedicated user interface. Easier content management 10.2 improves the user experience for managing several types of content: Field types for new fields are visually listed instead of a simple select list.

Media items now have a dedicated user interface to review and m

Drupal 10 will be supported until the release of Drupal 12 in mid-late 2026

22 November 2023 @ 7:13 am

New major release schedule Beginning with Drupal 10, a new Drupal major version will be released every two years in even years (2022, 2024, etc.). Each major version will receive active support for about two years, followed by maintenance support and security coverage for about two more years. Each is supported until two more major versions have been released. Chart illustrating the overlapping support of Drupal minor and major versions from 2024 to 2027, explained below. This is an example. The exact schedule varies, and will be published on the Drupal core release schedule. Dru

Drupal 9 is end of life

1 November 2023 @ 7:09 pm

Drupal 9 is end of life as of November 1st, 2023 Drupal 9 relies on several other software projects, including Symfony, CKEditor, and Twig. With Symfony 4's end of life, CKEditor 4's end of life, and Twig 2's end of life all coming up soon, Drupal 9 went end of life on November 1st, 2023. There will be no further releases of Drupal 9.

Drupal 7 End of Life Officially Announced for 5 January 2025

14 August 2023 @ 10:36 am

The Drupal project has announced that Drupal 7 will officially reach its End of Life on 5 January 2025. This date marks the 14-year anniversary since Drupal 7 was released on 5 January 2011. This will be the final extension of support for Drupal 7, meaning that after this date, if your site still runs on Drupal 7 it may become more susceptible to security vulnerabilities if no action is taken. Thus, it is recommended to migrate your site as soon as possible. In order to assist Drupal 7 site owners in migrating their sites, we have established a resource center and encourages all site owners, support teams, and contractors to visit the site to learn about transition op

Roadmap for Drupal 10.2, 10.3, and beyond

19 July 2023 @ 4:31 am

Dries talked about our vision and strategy for Drupal 11 in DrupalCon Portland 2022. The vision Dries laid out was that we want to make Drupal the tool of choice for ambitious site builders on the open web. In order for us to accomplish this goal, we believe that Drupal needs to provide: Easy-to-use tools that guide site builders on the right path Site building tools for providing an enjoyable experience for content editors An inexpensive, easy, and secure way to maintain digital experiences over time New features will be built in the current major version of Drupal. This means that components of this plan will be released gradually in Drupal core minor releases, not in a big bang

GitLab CI is now enabled for every project hosted on Drupal.org

13 July 2023 @ 10:28 pm

Did you miss our announcement at DrupalCon Pittsburgh? GitLab CI is now available for every project on Drupal.org. If you maintain a project you can now configure GitLab CI for all of your testing needs.  The Drupal Association and community contributors have created a default testing template that will help you get started, and should be automatically kept up to date with new versions of Drupal Core and its system requirements. But if you're a CI power user, you can customize the testing in any way you please. In the short term, DrupalCI is still available so you can use the systems in parallel to make sure your GitLabCI setup is working for your project. But once it is working, we ask you to disable DrupalCI testing on your project to save testing resources.  Please read the
