Drupal 8.1.0, the first minor release of Drupal 8, is now available. With Drupal 8, we made significant changes in our release process, adopting semantic versioning and scheduled feature releases. This allows us to make extensive improvements to Drupal 8 in a timely fashion while still providing backwards compatibility. Drupal 8.1.0 is the first such update.
March brought new syntax highlighting, documentation usability testing, better communication channels, and more! Read our Roadmap to understand how this work falls into priorities set by the Drupal Association with direction and collaboration from the Board and community.
Last year, Drupal Association staff—in collaboration with Forum One—developed the content strategy for Drupal.org. One of the problems that surfaced early-on during that project was the problem of communicating with the community. Find out how we are starting to address that.
Update: Newer versions of Drupal 8 are now available. We will no longer post front page announcements for every monthly bugfix release, but you can always follow the Drupal project page to find the latest release.
Drupal 8.0.5, a maintenance release with numerous bug fixes (no security fixes), is now available for download.
Last week, we launched a new list of organizations on Drupal.org that shows every profile that has been created for an organization. This includes companies, universities, nonprofits, governments and more. These are our customers and community organizations that use Drupal to power their web experiences. By giving their developers time to contribute back code to the community, they are helping to ensure the project gets the best ideas from the most diverse group of makers and builders.
