Drupal core announcements: 8.7.0-alpha1 deadline moved to March 11

Planet Drupal - 11 February 2019 - 9:42am

Last fall, we adjusted our minor release date for Drupal 8.7.0 from March 6 to May 1. This was done as part of moving Drupal's minor release schedule toward a consistent schedule that will have minor releases in the first weeks of June and December each year. (See Plan for Drupal 9 for more information on why we are making this change.)

However, the change to the 8.7.0 release date means that DrupalCon Seattle now falls in the middle of important preparation phases for the minor release. In order to ensure community members have adequate time to prepare and test the release without interfering with DrupalCon Seattle events, we've moved the alpha and beta phases for the release one week earlier:

  • 8.7.0-alpha1 will now be released the week of March 11. The alpha phase will last two weeks until the release window for beta1.
  • 8.7.0-beta1 will now be released the week of March 25. The beta phase will now last three weeks (including the week of DrupalCon) instead of two. The beta phase will still end when the release candidate window begins.
  • The release candidate (RC) and release dates are unchanged. The RC window still begins April 15 and the scheduled release date is still May 1.

(Read more about alpha, beta, and RC phases.)
