As everyone in the Drupal community knows, Drupal 8 was a major shift in the way the software was built and will be developed into the future. Prior to Drupal 8, each major release essentially caused major rewrites for core and all of the contributed modules. Drupal 8 aimed to fix this; moving forward, Drupal upgrades will be easy and fast.
