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.
There has been a lot of discussion around the future of the Drupal front end both on Drupal.org and on Dries's blog posts. These all relate to Dries's concept of "progressive decoupling", in which some portions of the page are handed over to client-side logic after Drupal renders the initial page (not to be confused with "full decoupling"). The posts have drawn a variety of reactions.
