We updated all our D8 and D9 sites to use Composer 2. Composer 2.0 was released on 24 October, 2020. It is so much faster and uses far less memory. It's a big relief to remove Composer wait time from our development process not to talk of making sure there is enough high memory for Composer on our machines.
We just upgraded one of our Drupal 7 websites to Drupal 8 in our first major version migration experience. It was a friendly and seamless experience. We did not need any extra tool other than the migration tools in Drupal core. We migrated the content with the tools, created a new Drupal 8 theme, recreated the views (views are not migrated) and that was it!
With Drupal adopting the use of Composer to manage code as from Drupal 8 upwards, this has also affected the installation of Drush. Now all you need is to run a single Composer command to install it. Composer installs Drush inside the 'vendor' directory and makes it available at vendor/bin/drush, but you want to use the traditional drush command and not vendor/bin/drush. What are ways you can achieve this? Check in and get the info.
As from version 8, Drupal recommends using Composer to manage dependencies. This has thrown off users who are not comfortable working in the command line. But using Composer to manage packages in Drupal is not explicitly required, it is only a recommendation. You can still manage Drupal version 8 and upwards just the way you managed version 7 being downloading and installing from tarball or installing with Softaculous - these methods are still valid with Drupal. But what if you started manually and now you want to switch over to Composer? Hop on the link and get the info on this.
Drupal 9 was released on June 3, 2020 as scheduled. This is the first major version release of Drupal that 'the big deal about it, is that it is not a big deal' because of the easy version 8 to 9 upgrade. 8 to 9 is the easiest Drupal upgrade in a decade and there is a commitment to easy upgrades going forward so Drupal will not replatform again.

Since 1989 when Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, the Web has spun off so immense and never-seen-before level of collaboration, invention and creativity. The Web has progressed from the early days of static websites (Web 1.0) to the time of interactive dynamic content (Web 2.0) which saw the emergence of CMSes. Now at Web 3.0, we are beginning to hear about headless CMS. What are these and how is Drupal keeping up with the new developments? Hop in and get the info.
Drupal 9 is scheduled to be released June 3, 2020, less than 5 months from now! What will the upgrade experience be like? How does this major version change differ from the past ones? How about Drupal 7 and 8? Hop in and get the info.
Drupal 8 recommends using Composer to manage Drupal sites. From initiating projects, installing Drupal core, contributed modules and themes; to updating and managing them, Composer is recommended. What about installing Drupal 8 on Cpanel using the new recommended template?
Drupal 8 is the newest version of the Drupal CMS released in 2015. With the release came major changes in Drupal, it is a complete rewrite and lots of things changed (for the better). Drupal has been known for being so brave to break things in order to make giant leaps forward. So with version 8, the amazing and all-time successful Drupal 7 was broken (one would think this was unimaginable), I mean who will break such a successful CMS like Drupal 7 and what better product could you possibly make? But Drupal 8 has proven to be superior indeed, something better than Drupal 7, amazing!
