It’s no secret that online harassment is a huge and growing problem for people trying to use the Internet. A 2014 Pew Research Center study found that 73% of adult Internet users in the United States have observed someone being harassed online and 40% have personally experienced harassment themselves. The same study found that women and minorities are disproportionately the targets of the most severe forms of harassment, such as sexual harassment and stalking.
The one big question I get asked over and over these days is: "How is Drupal 8 doing?". It's understandable. Drupal 8 is the first new version of Drupal in five years and represents a significant rethinking of Drupal.
So how is Drupal 8 doing? With less than half a year since Drupal 8 was released, I'm happy to answer: outstanding!
Although developed primarily for my own use, it is being made public in the hope that it may be of use already to other Drupal developers interested in assessments of the readiness of Drupal8 core and contributed modules. The site also already includes lots of external links to essential Drupal8 docs, reviews, tips, tutorials and reviews by other developers.
Today is another big day for Drupal as we just released Drupal 8.1.0. Drupal 8.1.0 is an important milestone as it is a departure from the Drupal 7 release schedule where we couldn't add significant new features until Drupal 8. Drupal 8.1.0 balances maintenance with innovation.
