Drupal 9.0 was launched earlier this month as a continuation of Drupal 8. This time around, the core update was more about updating the technology underlying Drupal's codebase and eliminating dependencies than introducing brand-new features, but fear not: we'll be getting some of those soon enough.
Drupal releases features on a semi-annual basis, and version 9.1 is expected to be rolled out around December this year.
At Evolving Web, we're committed to sharing our expertise and insights so that you can remain productive while working remotely.
Here are some things you can consider doing—and examples of how we've been doing them—to help your clients, your teams, and your community.
Originally from Winnipeg, MB, I moved to Fredericton, NB before beginning high school. I’ve always had interests in a variety of areas. I have a background as a musician, experience with content creation and design, and a fascination with computers. I was interested in learning more about web development, and working with an experienced agency seemed like an ideal way to gain those valuable skills.
The recent official launch of Drupal 9.0 represents 4 and a half years of improvements (and more than 4,500 individual contributors) to the open source CMS designed to support the most ambitious digital experiences. The official party line, so to speak, is that "the big deal about Drupal 9 is that it's not a big deal."
Use the web for a short amount of time and you'll no doubt bump into an accordion, one of those collapsible elements that, when clicking on the title, opens up to reveal more information. Click the title again, and it closes back up.
If you're a web developer, you've also probably had to code one of these, myself included. There are a few different ways you could build this, but I recently learned that there's a way built right into HTML5! But first, let's take a look at the ways I (and probably you) have done this before.
For higher education IT departments, it's a familiar scenario.
Your team is in charge of managing hundreds of websites that support different mission-critical areas of your organization. You are responsible for updating the sites, keeping them all up and running, and optimizing their performance. Additionally, each site has its own small team updating content, creating new features, and working within the Drupal admin system. They are predominantly non-technical users, and reach out to your team whenever they need help.
Today, we're excited to celebrate the launch of the most stable and mature version of Drupal to date. Drupal 9 is the culmination of the work of thousands of contributors around the globe, collaborating to create an innovative platform that's designed for everyone to use.
