A critical component of improving the experience for all users is accessibility. In this episode of Tag1TeamTalks, Michael Meyers (Managing Director, Tag1) talks with Kat Shaw (Senior Front-end Developer, Lullabot), a CPACC-certified accessibility expert working on both initiatives.
Join us for a tour and overview of both themes, get unique insight into the development process and inner workings of strategic initiatives, learn about the accessibility improvements, and find out how all these benefit you and your Drupal sites (hint: your sites become a lot more accessible, for free, with little effort on your part).
Both initiatives carry over from D8 and have been under development for some time. In Drupal 9.0, Claro, the new admin theme, is available in beta as an optional theme you can enable today. It is slated to become the default admin theme in the upcoming D9.1 release. You can also try the new front-end theme, Olivero, hands-on, by downloading and installing it from Drupal.org. It will likely be part of Core in the upcoming D9.1 release as an optional theme that you can enable, and will hopefully be the default theme in Drupal 9.2.
