The monthly core patch (bug fix) release window is this Wednesday, February 01. Drupal 8.2.6 and 7.54 will be released with fixes for Drupal 8 and 7.

Also, Drupal 8.3.0-alpha1 will be released during the window.

To ensure a reliable release window for the patch release, there will be a Drupal 8.3.x and 8.2.x commit freeze from 12:00 UTC Tuesday to 12:00 UTC Thursday. Now is a good time to update your development/staging servers to the latest 8.2.x-dev or 7.x-dev code and help us catch any regressions in advance. If you do find any regressions, please report them in the issue queue. Thanks!

To see all of the latest changes that will be included in the releases, see the 8.2.x commit log and 7.x commit log.

Other upcoming core release windows after this week include:

  • Wednesday, February 15 (security release window and beta window for 8.3.x)
  • Wednesday, March 01 (patch release window and release candidate window for 8.3.x)
  • Wednesday, April 5 (scheduled minor release)

Drupal 6 is end-of-life and will not receive further releases.
