We've got a lovely mix of announcements for you today!
The Drupal project has a regular release cycle, with minor releases occurring every 6 months. Drupal's latest minor release, 10.2.x is now available. We've added a "Quick reference" to our tutorial, Update Drupal's Minor Version, and have given it a fresh review. Check it out to learn how to update your Drupal site to the latest minor version (within the same major version).
New major release schedule announced
Speaking of release schedules, on the Drupal blog, a new major release schedule was announced. Major versions will be released every 2 years, and will be actively supported for 2 years. When the next major version is released, the previous version will receive 2-year's of support and security releases. This means that site owners will have 4 years of long term maintenance and security releases for each major version of Drupal moving forward.
Don't miss one of the main takeaways: Site owners wishing to take advantage of Drupal 10's long-term support phase should ensure their platforms always use PHP versions supported by the PHP maintainers.
Read this announcement on the Drupal blog on Drupal.org:
New Drupalize.Me tutorial feature: "On this page"
You might have noticed a new feature in the navigation menu inside tutorials called "On this page". It contains "jump links" to each heading in the tutorial. We hope this feature will help you scan and navigate a tutorial with ease.
ICYMI: Video tutorials to tutorials in Routes and Controllers course
In case you missed it, we've added videos to the first 4 tutorials in our new course, Routes and Controllers in Drupal. Add the course to your queue and start the year with a solid understanding of how to code custom pages in Drupal.
We are officially closed December 25-January 1. That means that we'll see your support message when we get back in the office on January 2. Thanks for your patience! And we wish you a happy holiday season.
