Drupal 8.0.0 beta 1 released

Update: The latest Drupal 8 beta release is available with important security fixes.

Drupal 8.0.0-beta1 has just been released for testing and feedback! This key milestone is the work of over 2,300 people who have contributed more than 11,500 committed patches to 15 alpha releases, and especially the 234 contributors who fixed 177 "beta blocker" issues.

Drupal.org Maintenance: Sep 23rd 14:00 PDT (21:00 UTC)

Completed successfully!

Drupal.org will be affected by maintenance Tuesday, September 23rd 14:00 PDT, 21:00 UTC.

Switching version control systems for Drupal.org deployment will cause a short downtime as docroot files are migrated. We plan on a 30 minute window of potential instability.

Please follow the @drupal_infra Twitter account for any issues encountered during the maintenance window.

Thanks for your patience!
