The Drupal upgrade timeline

The way Drupal handles its upgrade policy has changed dramatically since Drupal 8. The first release of Drupal 9 was published on June 3, 2020. That was also immediately the last anticipated update to Drupal 8, which was End Of Life in November 2021. But there is a good reason for this. Historically, major Drupal releases were relatively far apart, but this is no longer the case since Drupal 8. The main reason is that Drupal 8 (and also D9 and beyond) uses the fantastic Symfony PHP framework, and Drupal chooses to keep the version of this framework up to date all the time as well. In short, when Symfony drops its support for an older version, Drupal does the same.

Did you know?

Drupal 10 will be available as early as June 2022? Like D8->D9, the upgrade to version 10 will be back to being an update with a small footprint. It also brings new improvements, such as clearer interfaces and a richer page-editing experience.

So, what does this mean in a nutshell?

Well, Drupal is a very good choice to start a new project with today, because you have certainty about the smooth upgrade possibilities. Choosing a good Drupal partner is even more important today than it was before, because you need to be able to rely on a party that makes the best choice between Drupal modules, writes maintainable code and ensures your website is always up to date. In any case, there is a bright future ahead with Drupal 9!
