Build something amazing.
With over 200 new features and improvements.
The world’s favorite open source content management platform just got better. Drupal 8 is the new standard for creating incredible digital experiences—for small businesses, global enterprises, and everything in between.
Tools for systems
Meet Drupal 8, a powerful new suite of tools, and the strongest link in your new content supply chain. Interact with countless applications, thanks to REST-first native web services. Use progressive decoupling to break free from back-end restrictions without sacrificing security and accessibility. Deliver faster, with enhanced entity caching and better integration with CDNs and reverse proxies. With Drupal 8, you can build almost any integrated experience you can imagine.
Simplicity for editors
Turn great ideas into great experiences. Leave your desktop behind and create compelling content on more modern devices than ever. Work efficiently with better previews and drag-and-drop image uploads. And when you need to make quick changes, choose in-context editing and use only the tools you need.
Power for administrators
It's easier to customize components—views, lists, blocks, admin tools, and more—than ever before. Control how data is displayed without using a single line of code. Structure content with more field types, and add SEO-friendly meaning with native Schema.org markup. Make creating and managing content a great experience too.
Accessibility for everyone
Drupal 8 ships with extensive support for accessibility standards, and not only for color contrast and font sizes. Semantic HTML5 helps you create interactions—even ones with dynamic content—that are more usable. Plus, Drupal now adopts more WAI-ARIA practices. You can make content structures easier to understand for people with disabilities.
Harmony in deployment
Fine-tune your configuration management with an all-new system. It's now much easier to move configuration changes between environments. That means better deployments and more sophisticated maintenance are at your fingertips. Build with precise control over the integrity of views, content types, user roles, and more. Store configuration data consistently, in a central place. The power to unleash it all is now a standard Drupal feature.
Languages for anyone
Choose any one of a hundred languages at the first step of installation. Translate any component of the software—taxonomy, comments, configuration, image styles, and more. Enjoy better browser language detection, easier right-to-left styling, and built-in transliteration support. You can build unique, customized localizations. And you can use them to create amazing internationalized experiences.
Proudly found elsewhere
Maximize Drupal’s flexibility with object-oriented code and the latest PHP standards. Some of the best-known technologies are now part of Drupal 8. It depends on dozens of external libraries—like Composer, Guzzle, and Symfony2—so you can write and debug code faster, with more confidence. Say goodbye to PHPTemplate; rely on much more readable code when theming with Twig. And use simpler, more unified APIs to add power to your modules and themes.
