Release notes

Betas are good testing targets for developers and site builders who are comfortable reporting (and where possible, fixing) their own bugs, and who are prepared to rebuild their test sites from scratch when necessary. Beta releases are not recommended for non-technical users, nor for production websites. More information on beta releases.

An upgrade path will not be supported from this release to the next beta release, nor before all known upgrade path blockers are resolved.

Known issues

There are still 116 critical issues with this beta release that need to be resolved before we will create a release candidate.

Obvious user facing bugs

If you are testing the beta, be aware that there are obvious site visitor and site builder-facing bugs, please consult the list below to see if they already have an issue open:

Additionally, beta releases are every month, but critical bug fixes go into 8.0.x every day. If you find a bug in the actual beta release, please try the latest dev to see if it's still there in addition to searching the issue queue.

There are several outstanding API changes which will continue to be worked on during the beta releases, but which we do not expect to impact the majority of contributed module porting. These include changes to page rendering, SafeMarkup followups, Entity URI templates, Configuration dependency and schema corrections, theme templates, and other critical issues that need to be solved by making an API change.
