Drupal 9 was released on June 3, 2020, and that’s already a year behind us. Drupal 10’s target date is June 2022! As long as 2020 was, 2022 seemed a long way away, but it definitely is not. As Drupal continues to progress, Drupal users and developers get more used to the consistent framework Drupal is built on. Planning ahead for everything from new features, to software upgrades, is faster and simpler than ever before. ## Listening to the Symfony November 2023 is the target end of life (EOL) date for Symfony 4. Drupal versions have to keep up with supported versions of Symfony. Drupal 8’s end of life (EOL) is determined by Symfony 3’s EOL date, which is part of why the EOL date for D8 was not extended, even though Drupal 7’s was. Drupal versions have to keep up with supported versions of Symfony. Compatibility with later Symfony versions may come sooner, to ensure cross-compatibility in Drupal. ## Ease of upgrades Drupal 8 to 9 was probably the easiest major version upgrade in the history of Drupal, because Drupal 9 was built on the same framework, only removing deprecated code.

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. You get a great return on investment upgrading to D9 because you can seamlessly upgrade to Drupal 10, then 11. Development is looking forward to newer versions, not looking back. This is great news if you want to upgrade to Drupal 9. Over half of the top 50 D7 contrib modules have versions which are Drupal 9 compatible or have compatible releases in progress. Many or all of the features you rely on are ready to go in the new versions. Upgrading modules to Drupal 8 or greater has been an iterative process, like previous versions. Issue trackers, sprints, and focused sessions helped move many of the major modules into readiness for later versions. There aren't many sprints for Drupal 7 development anymore, but there are people working to upgrade D7 modules to D8 and D9. ## What does...</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/are-my-favorite-modules-ready-d9" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Wed, 09/01/2021 - 07:49</span> Wed, 01 Sep 2021 14:49:12 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 390 at https://www.tag1consulting.com What's in your open source toolbox? https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/whats-your-open-source-toolbox <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Many of us in open source communities tend to be proponents of not only the primary project we’re working with (like Drupal), we also tend to be pretty big proponents of other types of open source software. These may be projects that benefit us in our day to day work, libraries that we leverage to build on our main project, or software we end up using in our personal lives, for projects that we do strictly for our own purposes. Tag1, being a company based on using open source software, uses a variety of software based on the day to day work of our team, and the needs of our clients. This software ranges from Drupal itself, to the underlying software it uses, to the testing software, and IDEs and plugins we use to help create quality code and content. ## Drupal We all know Drupal is open source, and one of the largest CMS projects out there. It relies on a variety of other open source software as well - MySQL, PHP, Composer, Symfony, and so on. Some parts of Drupal make use of additional libraries that fulfill needs that would otherwise go unmet. ## Load testing No well-trafficked...</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/whats-your-open-source-toolbox" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/lynette-miles" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" content="lynette@tag1consulting.com">lynette@tag1co…</span></span> <span>Tue, 08/10/2021 - 11:36</span> Tue, 10 Aug 2021 18:36:22 +0000 lynette@tag1consulting.com 389 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Tag1 Joins the Rust Foundation as the First Silver Member https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/tag1-joins-rust-foundation-first-silver-member <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Open Source software is the foundation of Tag1 Consulting’s business, and it is essential to our core values that we contribute to and support the open source communities we benefit from.

His announcement started, “I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional…)”. Three decades later, the top 500 supercomputers are all running Linux, as are over 70% of all smartphones. Linux is clearly both big and professional.</p><div class="more-link"><a href="/blog/interview-linus-torvalds-linux-and-git" class="more-link" hreflang="en">Read more</a></div></div> <span><span lang="" about="/user/jeremy-andrews" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Jeremy</span></span> <span>Wed, 04/28/2021 - 06:29</span> Wed, 28 Apr 2021 13:29:57 +0000 Jeremy 357 at https://www.tag1consulting.com Tag1's Upcoming Talks at DrupalCon NA & Summits - Spring 2021 https://www.tag1consulting.com/blog/tag1-upcoming-talks-spring-2021 <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p>Looking to expand your Drupal knowledge?
