We met again today to discuss critical issues blocking Drupal 8's release (candidate). (See all prior recordings).

SafeMarkup::set(), SafeMarkup::checkPlain(), and other methods are removed from Drupal 8 core

Before the release of the first Drupal 8 beta, Twig's autoescape functionality was enabled in Drupal 8 core. At the time, the SafeMarkup class was added in order to integrate Drupal core's own filtering and escaping APIs with Twig's.

No Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 core release on Wednesday, September 2

The monthly Drupal core bug fix/feature release window is scheduled for this Wednesday. However, there have not been enough changes to the development version since the last bug fix/feature release to warrant a new release, so there will be no Drupal core release on that date. (I had hoped to get a release done, but scheduling issues plus the work involved in putting out a large security release in August made it impossible.) A Drupal 7 bug fix/feature release during the October window is likely instead.

Drupal core security release window on Wednesday, August 19

Start: 
2015-08-19 (All day) America/New_York
Organizers: 
Event type: 
Online meeting (eg. IRC meeting)

The monthly security release window for Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 core will take place on Wednesday, August 19.

This does not mean that a Drupal core security release will necessarily take place on that date for either the Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 branches, only that you should prepare to look out for one (and be ready to update your Drupal sites in the event that the Drupal security team decides to make a release).

There will be no bug fix/feature release on this date; the next window for a Drupal core bug fix/feature release is Wednesday, September 2.

Drupal 8 core updates for July 27th, 2015

Since the last Drupal 8 core update, the API module maintainers started looking for co-maintainers, and Two-Factor Authentication was rolled out to anyone with the Community role on Drupal.org (among other improvements).

What's new with Drupal 8?

Drupal 8's minimum PHP version increased to 5.5.9, and minimum PostgreSQL version increased to 9.1.2. Also, tim-e handed off co-maintainership of the Contact module to Jibran Ijaz and Andrey Postnikov; and Frando stopped being a maintainer of the Entity, Form, and Render systems — special thanks to both tim-e and Frand for their amazing contributions!
