Updates from Drupal 8 core initiatives for November 2016

Would you guess that Drupal 8 is already one year old? One of my favorite changes with the Drupal 8.0.0 release was that we also chose to turn to scheduled releases (to happen twice a year) as well as semantic versioning (to allow us to make backwards compatible additions and improvements). That meant that we don't need to wait until Drupal 9 to come out with new exciting things, and indeed, there are various exciting initiatives going on in core right now. Maybe so many that they are hard to follow. So we decided to revive regular posts about core's progress so you can see what is going on and where you may be able to help. And this is not even all the things happening, just a sampling.

Media sprints in 2016 in Berlin, Prague and Munich

Last week Dries Buytaert published our plan for media management in Drupal 8 which details at least the immediate plans. The inherent limitation of file based attachment/image management in core is it does not mix well with remote media (Facebook embeds, videos, Digital Asset Management, etc.) and there is no library of media to browse to reuse existing media on the site. Therefore our short term goal is to add a base to support a wide varierty of media as well as a media library and support for embedding such media in posts in general.

To support this plan, we host online meetings every Wednesday at 2pm GMT in #drupal-media on IRC, but without focused time on implementing these, we are unlikely to succeed before the feature deadline of Drupal 8.3 at the end of January 2017. Therefore we are planning the following sprints for this year.

Help steer Drupal 8, participate in key initiatives

Maybe you have seen Dries Buytaert's DrupalCon keynote and are looking forward to all the goodies coming in future Drupal 8 versions. The truth is none of those things will happen without people who want to make them happen to solve their own challenges with implementing Drupal solutions. Are you implementing decoupled solutions and have issues you are working on? In the middle of building up a suite of integrated media solutions? These core team meetings are ideal to bring in these issues and discuss solutions and to be part of shaping up where Drupal 8 is heading. Read on for details. (Last updated Nov 8th 2016).
