The monthly core patch (bug fix) release window is this Wednesday, August 02. Drupal 8.3.6 will be released with dozens of fixes for Drupal 8. Drupal 8.4.0-alpha1 will also be released sometime during the week to begin preparation for the upcoming minor release in October. There will be no Drupal 7 bugfix release this month.

To ensure a reliable release window for the patch release, there will be a Drupal 8.3.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 8.3.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 release, see the 8.3.x commit log.

Other upcoming core release windows after this week include:

  • Wednesday, August 16 (security release window)
  • Wednesday, September 06 (patch release window)
  • Wednesday, October 5 (scheduled minor release)
