Planet Drupal - 5 September 2017 - 2:49am

It’s impossible to create a system which is absolutely safe but Drupal developers try. Thanks to the big community of developers there is a lot of documentation and useful examples of the proper configuration of Drupal website security and keeping this configuration up-to-date.

This article focuses on discussing common server settings, the configuration of a web server, PHP, and a database, and, of course, Drupal. It provides clues which should help the server and website administrators to audit the security of the entire system.

Commerce Single Price Formatter

New Drupal Modules - 5 September 2017 - 1:20am

This module came in as an idea while trying to display a column containing only the discount components of a price in the commerce cart view page. I first tried using the Commerce Extra Price Formatters which had a very good logic in it but the implemented formatters didn't do exactly what I needed. This module, instead of predefining a set of formatters, defines only one formatter which tries to fit all needs.

Entity Mapper Service

New Drupal Modules - 4 September 2017 - 1:17pm

The entity mapper service defines a pattern in which content entities can be mapped into associative arrays in a hierarchical manner.

New Drupal Modules - 4 September 2017 - 12:36pm

Consumers is a module that does not do much on its own. Instead it's used by other modules to provide functionality for decoupled scenarios. Use this module as a dependency in your custom module to provide per-consumer variations of a feature. Or write a general purpose contrib module like Simple OAuth or Consumer Image Styles.

Structure Sync

New Drupal Modules - 4 September 2017 - 3:12am

Some websites might contain elements that are considered content by the Drupal CMS while they might not only be used as content. For example custom blocks might be used for a footer that is shared between all environments. Structure sync tries to give you a tool to get around this issue by allowing you to synchronize taxonomy terms, menu links and custom blocks through the configuration. The module will prevent you from having to create content multiple times and also decrease the risk of some elements being out of sync between environments, the main menu for example.

Aegir on Docker - Develop, Test, With Easier Deployment.

Aegir with Docker would be one of the brilliant option for Better Drupal Development and Faster Deployments.
Docker, which solves the overhead of virtualization layer. And Aegir, which gives the best possible Drupal Multisite hosting.

Components Combo

New Drupal Modules - 2 September 2017 - 9:54am

Several people asked me if I have ready to use paragraph configurations, with styling and so on. It became apparent to me that a lot of small projects would like to have some components ready for them, so I went on and started this project.

The Components Combo module defines ui_patterns and paragraphs, and includes a submodule to tie them both together.

At the moment, the project provides 3 modules:

Drupal core announcements: 8.4.0 release candidate phase begins week of September 4; no Drupal 8.3.x or 7.x patch release planned

Planet Drupal - 1 September 2017 - 4:41pm
Drupal 8.4.0 release candidate phase

The release candidate phase for the 8.4.0 minor release begins the week of September 4. Starting that week, the 8.4.x branch will be subject to patch release restrictions. Closer to the 8.4.0 release on October 4, we will limit the changes to critical bugfixes and other high-priority changes. You can help by ensuring that the issue priority is set correctly for major-priority issues, and that the branch field is set to 8.5.x (for disruptive changes) or 8.4.x (for patch-release-safe bugfixes) as appropriate.

8.4.0 provides stable, production-ready releases for several modules that were previously experimental, including Workflows, Datetime Range, Layout Discovery, Media, and Inline Form Errors. The release also includes several critical bug fixes and many other improvements for REST, content moderation, authoring experience, performance, and automated testing. You can read a detailed list of improvements in the announcement of alpha1.

Minor versions may include changes to user interfaces, translatable strings, themes, internal APIs like render arrays and controllers, etc. (See the Drupal 8 backwards compatibility and internal API policy for details.) Developers and site owners should test the release candidate to prepare for these changes.

8.5.x will remain open for new development during the 8.4.x release candidate phase.
Drupal 8.4.0 will be released on October 4th, 2017.

No Drupal 8.3.x or 7.x releases planned

September 6 is also a monthly core patch (bug fix) release window for Drupal 8 and 7, but no patch release is planned. This is also the final bug fix release window for 8.3.x (meaning 8.3.x will not receive further development or support aside from its final security release window on September 20). Drupal 8 sites should plan to update to Drupal 8.4.0 on October 4.

For more information on Drupal core release windows, see the documentation on release timing and security releases, as well as the Drupal core release cycle overview.
