Drupal 8 Release Date Announced: November 19, 2015
Important news for Drupal users: Drupal 8 is finally coming. Not only does this news mean a new Drupal with new features, but it impacts Drupal 6 users significantly. Drupal only supports two major versions. For years those have been Drupal 6 and Drupal 7. With the release of Drupal 8, support for Drupal 6 is nearing its end.
Drupal's policy: Support for Drupal 6 will cease three months after Drupal 8 is released.
Drupal 6 was released in February, 2008. It's enjoyed a good, long run. If you have a Drupal 6 website, now's the time to start planning for your migration to Drupal 7 or Drupal 8.
