No Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 core release on Wednesday, August 5

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. A Drupal 7 bug fix/feature release during the September window is likely instead.

Upcoming release windows include:

  • Wednesday, August 19 (security release window)
  • Wednesday, September 2 (bug fix/feature release window)

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!

Drupal core security release window on Wednesday, July 15

Start: 
2015-07-15 (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, July 15.

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, August 5.

Drupal 8's minimum PHP version increased to 5.5.9

Pursuant to the discussion at [policy] Require PHP 5.5, the minimum PHP version of Drupal 8 has been raised to 5.5.9, and this change will be included in the next Drupal 8 beta (8.0.0-beta13).

(PHP 5.5.9 was chosen because it is also the same minimum version as Ubuntu's LTS, which in turn influenced Symfony 3.0, Travis CI, etc.)

This is a future-proofing move which buys us a few things:

API module seeking co-maintainer

For the past 8+ years, Neil Drumm (drumm) has been maintaining the API module, and I've been co-maintaining it for the past 3+ years. (This is the module that builds and displays the Drupal API reference site api.drupal.org). Both of us have "some" other responsibilities in the Drupal ecosystem, and we'd like to find a new co-maintainer.

Drupal 8 core updates for July 7th, 2015

Since the last Drupal 8 Core Update, DrupalCon Los Angeles took place, the proposed organizational structure for the Drupal project was approved and MAINTAINERS.txt was updated to reflect this (although it still needs to be updated in the Drupal 7 branch), and the Drupal Association announced updates to their 2015 financial plan.

What's new with Drupal 8?

Drupal 8.0.0-beta11 and 8.0.0-beta12 were released, a new category for issues, plan, was added to categorize meta issues, the Drupal 8 Security bug bounty program was launched, Angie "webchick" Byron analyzed Drupal major version adoption and walked us through the new DrupalCI testing infrastructure, hook_update_N() became required for core patches that introduce data model changes, the number of outstanding criticals was reduced to a new all-time low of 15, and for a while, every single critical was RTBC or being addressed!

Update: Drupal 8 beta 12 rescheduled for June 29; get ready for hook_update_N() in core

We've rescheduled Drupal 8 beta 12 for June 29, 2015 to provide a little more leeway time for Drupal 8 core issues that require an update function. Starting June 29, any Drupal 8 core issue that includes a data model change must include an update function and update path test. See the previously announced core policy on requiring hook_update_N() for more information.

Identify your data model changes now!

If you have any core patches that are currently under development, please start identifying the data model changes in those patches now. Tag any issue that requires a data model change with D8 upgrade path and document the specific data model changes in the issue summary. Or, help triage major issues with specific attention to the data model changes.
