Drupal 6.0 is no longer supported as of today (February 24th, 2016).
If your site runs on Drupal, it’s time to prepare to migrate your site if you need to, or if you think you might need to! If you’re uncertain, today is a good day to speak with your site administrator(s), or web development partner, about a potential migration.
So what does Drupal 8.0 bring to the table?
It will take some time to truly assess the new additions. But what it clear right out of the gate is that 8.0 offers vastly improved admin themes that are (finally!) responsive. There’s also a number of features that should help make Drupal more application-development friendly. This is what remains to be seen. But, if true, could help make Drupal a more cost-effective solution for custom development.
It’s going to be interesting to open the box and see how these new changes work in practice. But there’s reason to believe that this new launch could help open the door for more would-be Drupal adopters.
