How to update Drupal 8 core?

Let's see how to update your Drupal site between 8.x.x minor and patch versions. For example, from 8.1.2 to 8.1.3, or from 8.3.5 to 8.4.0. I hope this will help you.

  • If you are upgrading to Drupal version x.y.z

           x -> is known as the major version number

Batman: The Animated Series Dice Game Now Available

Tabletop Gaming News - 1 hour 58 min ago
The Batman: The Animated Series show was one of the highest quality cartoon products I feel I’ve seen. It really captured the dark, dense world of Gotham and the inhabitants thereof. Though we watched it as kids (or, at least, I watched it as a kid), it really was full of grown-up themes and situations. […]

There, Hitler’s occult researchers have come across things that man really shouldn’t be tempering with. Now, the new weapons that […]

Drupal Association News: DrupalCon Sprint Adjustments

Planet Drupal - 7 December 2016 - 12:50pm

As Drupal, the Project, keeps growing and changing, so does DrupalCon. As the Events Team at the Drupal Association, we are continually working to improve the event - to strengthen the programming and to better fit the needs of attendees. Over the past year, we've heard through both formal and informal conversations that DrupalCon sprints are ready for a change.

A consistent topic in those conversations was that Extended Sprints, held on weekends before and after DrupalCon, may be too much. While 9 days of sprinting at previous DrupalCons evolved informally, they were a key part of the hard push that got Drupal 8 out the door. Concerns were raised that it is not healthy for contributors to continue at this pace. Contributors said that they were a little burnt out and didn't need as many days of sprinting.

A few weeks ago, we met with some of the sprint leads to discuss DrupalCon sprints to really hear what the Project needs at this point in its life-cycle. What we heard was: "Shorter sprints, with greater support." Based on this conversation with sprint leads, informal conversations from community members, and some feedback from the attendee survey, DrupalCon staff will no longer be organizing weekend Extended Sprints at DrupalCon going forward.

We will continue to support full day sprints from Monday through Friday. There is a dedicated sprint room throughout the week at the convention center, open Monday through Friday, as well as a designated location at the host hotel for 24 hour sprinting sessions. Sprint mentors are available at the DA sponsored mentor table in the exhibit hall throughout the conference to answer any questions about the contribution process, help new contributors pick which sprint best fits them, encourage new mentors to join Friday, and help both new contributors and new mentors know what to do to prepare for the sprints on Friday. We will concentrate our support on providing sufficient quality sprint space, and lunch and coffee, sprint room signage, supplies, special t-shirts for mentors, etc. - things that will help everyone have a quality productive sprint experience.

With these changes, our main objectives for DrupalCon sprints are to support current contributors, bring in new contributors, and nurture those who've dabbled, but not fully jumped in. We believe this is an imperative for the health of Drupal.

If you've attended a sprint at DrupalCon in the past, we certainly hope you will join us again in Baltimore. Our full conference website launched this week - be sure to check out the call for papers, buy a ticket, or apply for a scholarship.

Upgrading websites off of legacy platforms and onto Drupal is a pretty common request. One of the most helpful contributor developed modules, Migrate, is now in Drupal 8 core, which really solidifies Drupal as a great choice when having to make the decision of which CMS to go with when upgrading.

Manage drupal 8 site configuration with features

There are several ways to manage the drupal site configuration in Drupal 8 either by keeping it in the database or managing it at from the file system or managing with features.

I have launched couple of sites with the combination of the following best practices with managing features and configuration in file system

User Roles and Permissions are being managed by the Configuration Management because features does not export the permissions with the Roles
Using features for managing the other entities and rest of the stuff.

Lullabot: Drupal as a Political Act

Planet Drupal - 7 December 2016 - 9:01am

Like so many of you, both here in the United States and elsewhere, I am deeply troubled by the incidents of hateful harassment and the threats to democracy that have spiked since November 8. My thoughts have been routinely consumed with the task of analyzing my work and motivations, trying to detect any positive impact that my contributions have on the world. Because of my involvement in the Drupal community, my thoughts are as much about Drupal as they are about me. I am a proud member of our community and I cannot help but reflect on how the organization of our community brings people together, discourages hate, and promotes democracy.

What it would mean to "make the world better" is up for debate. We cannot be experts in all subjects, and a group of Drupal developers might not fully understand, for example, the policies that allow tax havens, the economic implications of a $15 minimum wage, how to combat predatory lending, or the solutions to climate change. Perhaps we have strong opinions on these topics, but many of us would begrudgingly admit that we know more about dependency injection, re-rolling patches, or even the hook system. That is, we know how to build Drupal websites. More importantly, to succeed in the Drupal community we are required to be considerate, respectful, and collaborative. We, as a community, vigorously reject bigotry, racism, sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia. This, in my view, makes the world better.

What is more, I would argue that Drupal blurs traditional boundaries. While certainly there are market forces that determine how Drupal is constructed, powerful legal and cultural nonmarket forces push back. Some Drupal agencies exist to turn a profit, but do so working primarily with public sector or non-profit organizations. Drupal agencies can be seen as capitalist in the sense that they accumulate surplus value by "exploiting the working class," but socialist in the sense that they produce goods that are owned collectively. Some have stated goals to invest value back into the community and others are "benefit corporations," required to make the world a better place. While I am tempted to place new labels on the Drupal community, such as "post-capitalist," I find such terms to be of limited use, and I am far more interested in finding common ground that unites our community.

Drupal code has only limited value without the community, and our community stands for values that transcend our code. I participate in the Drupal community because I believe it represents ideals that are consistent with my own. One of the beliefs that we hold in high regard is "doing good." It would be difficult to convince me that people, such as George DeMet and Tiffany Farriss, Todd Ross Nienkerk, or Lev Tsypin, have anything but the best intentions in the way they run their businesses. More importantly, these individuals, like so many others in our community, actually do make the world a better place through their work, compassion, and advocacy.

In some respects, the well-intentioned subset of our community exemplifies what Luc Boltanski and Eve Chiapello describe as "the new spirit of capitalism." In their study of management textbooks, they find this "new spirit" is characterized by, among other things, a "high moral tone" (58), a belief that workers should "control themselves" (80), structures where managers are essentially replaced with customers (82), and where bureaucracy represents a kind of "totalitarianism and arbitrariness" that should be avoided (85). While Boltanski and Chiapello find many faults with this "new spirit," generally, I would suggest that is has become more important than ever to acknowledge the many benefits that the people and organizations in our community have for the world. While critique and criticism will surely be needed, we should also continue to celebrate the impact that our software and colleagues plays in efforts towards ending poverty, empowering independent journalists, defending the free and open Internet, and educating people. Even though Drupal has been used for nefarious purposes, and there are many reasons to critique the Drupal community, I feel emboldened knowing that when people came together to build websites for DeanSpace, the United Nations, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, Oxfam, the ACLU, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, National Public Radio, Free Press, and the White House, they choose Drupal.

More than just software, part of the reason we "stay for the community" is because we place such a high premium on human interaction. Drupal contributors create public goods (free software) that can be used by one person without reducing the availability to others. If the public relations departments of mega-corporations extol the value of business and markets, while criticizing government and fair labor, the Drupal community takes an alternative approach that values solidarity. In this sense, our democratic practices threaten unjust power. Throughout history people in power have pushed back against the democratizing effects of solidarity to defend their positions of power. In his 1776 magnum opus on political economy, Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith famously observed, "All for ourselves and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind." With every Drupal Camp, DrupalCon, code sprint, community summit, and user group meeting we gather together in solidarity. Let us not forget all we do to encourage hope and camaraderie.

If you are discouraged by a world that turns workers against each other and treats citizens as consumers, pushing them to the malls rather than the public library, remember that we as a Drupal community are pushing back against the "masters of mankind." In the 1970s, Buckley v. Valeo may have determined that money is a form of speech, but because we work together, Drupal becomes another kind of speech. Most of us (the working class) must sell our labor in return for a wage or salary. So what I am arguing is not for our community to become noncommercial or anti-commercial, but instead that we consider expanding our horizon of expectations to allow for a conception of Drupal as a political act. I want us to celebrate our community and stand up against hate, inequality, corruption, and depoliticization. If that idea makes you uncomfortable, then perhaps consider the words of the historian Howard Zinn and his suggestion that what matters are "the countless deeds of unknown people who lay the basis for the events of human history." I hope that we can find common ground, build on what we have accomplished, and organize against the forces that seek to divide us against ourselves.
