How is Drupal 8 doing?

Republished from buytaert.net

The one big question I get asked over and over these days is: "How is Drupal 8 doing?". It's understandable. Drupal 8 is the first new version of Drupal in five years and represents a significant rethinking of Drupal.

Drupal 8.1.0 is now available

Drupal 8.1.0, the first minor release of Drupal 8, is now available. With Drupal 8, we made significant changes in our release process, adopting semantic versioning and scheduled feature releases. This allows us to make extensive improvements to Drupal 8 in a timely fashion while still providing backwards compatibility. Drupal 8.1.0 is the first such update.

What's new in Drupal 8.1.x?

Drupal 8.1.0 comes with numerous improvements, including CKEditor WYSIWYG enhancements, added APIs, an improved help page, and two new experimental modules. (Experimental modules are provided with Drupal core for testing purposes, but are not yet fully supported.)

State of Drupal 2016 survey

Reposted from buytaert.net

I've been writing a lot about what I believe is important for the future of Drupal, but now it is your turn. After every major release of Drupal I do a "product management survey" to get your ideas and data on what to focus on for future releases of Drupal (8.x/9).

A new design system for Drupal.org

As mentioned in our previous post, one of the initiatives we are working on this year is building a new visual system for Drupal.org.

Drupal 8.1.0 RC1 is available for testing

The first release candidate for the upcoming Drupal 8.1.0 release is now available for testing. With Drupal 8, we made major changes in our release process, adopting semantic versioning and scheduled releases. This allows us to make significant improvements to Drupal 8 in a timely fashion while still providing backwards compatibility. Drupal 8.1.0 will be the first such update, expected to be released April 20.

Restructuring Drupal.org

In this post I'd like to talk about one of our major projects for 2016, which comes as a follow up to the content strategy project of 2015.

Examples of how to make Drupal outside-in

The authoring experience improvements we made in Drupal 8 appear to be well-received, but that doesn't mean we are done. With semantic versioning in Drupal 8, we can now make more UX changes in follow-up releases of Drupal 8. So now is a good time to start moving Drupal's user experience forward.

Top 10 contributing customers

We spent a lot of time thinking about how to highlight the organizations in our Marketplace that are actively contributing to the project. There are some awesome Drupal shops and hosting partners out there that are making a huge difference.
