Drupal 8 Delayed

Drupal 8 Delayed

December 5th, 2012

The H Open has reported that the release of Drupal 8 will be delayed as developers complete new features. The Drupal 8 maintainers – Dries Buytaert, Nathaniel Catchpole and Angela Byron – have announced that the development team have decided to introduce a new "Feature Completion Phase" into the Drupal development cycle. According to Buytaert, this is necessary because "there are still incredible features for Drupal 8 that are heavily in progress, but not quite there yet".

 

The H Open states,
 
The new development phase is expected to last from 1 December 2012 to 18 February 2013. This means the code freeze for Drupal 8 will be pushed back three months to 1 July 2013. After that, the release schedule provides for a "Polish Phase" culminating in a Release Candidate and the eventual release. A fixed date for this has not been set. According to the developers, "Drupal 8 will be released when there are no release-critical issues remaining."
 
We're excited to see what Drupal 8 brings to the table! Is your website on Drupal? (Hint: if it isn't, it should be! Want to know more? We can help!)
