It seems that we are nearing an exciting day as we are getting closer to the full release of Drupal 8 with the assistance of a pilot program called Drupal 8 Accelerate. This program was designed by Drupal association to put the community funds of $250,000 in order to eradicate the 50 critical issues (release blockers). Drupal association has been an extraordinary leader in the effort to release Drupal 8.
What’s new with Drupal 8 Accelerate?
- Drupal could do a lot more to charge up the project. It had announced that D8 Accelerate is getting a great boost from seven anchor sponsors who have pledged to amplify the donations and accelerate community’s investment in Drupal 8.
- Phase2, Appnovation, Acquia, Palantir, Lullabot, Wunderkraut and PreviousNext have pledged almost $62,500 in order to match the Drupal Association’s matches of community donations. This is really an all-in-one community effort to get Drupal 8 out of the door. Their goal is make it a total of $250,000 and they are almost more than half the way now.
Why Drupal 8 should be successful?
- With several amazing features, Drupal 8 enables us to use it in the way that we wanted from several years. We can see the improved API layer, theming, multilingual capabilities and also the editor experience. It has made it much powerful for developers.
- Earlier, it was a challenge to integrate different front end elements or several libraries without lot of work; but with Drupal 8 it can be done with ease as it offers flexible implementations and software integration through Symfony routing.
- We will also be able to seamlessly incorporate mobile apps into the digital strategies developed as it has rectified one of the major weak points of the previous releases.
Phase2 and Drupal 8:
- At Phase 2, everybody needs Drupal 8 to be succeeded because their clients have huge requirements and they believe that Drupal 8 will be able to address those issues. Hence investing on Drupal 8 has been made a priority; not only in the Drupal 8 Accelerate program, but also in the form of contributed codes.
- Early implementations of Drupal 8 has enabled the direct support and are providing the group of advanced scouts to report back from the front lines.
But still Drupal 8 needs a strong push to get over the finish line. So we need to ask the support of our fellow Drupalers yet again. We all have an important role to be played in the success of the project; so that it can be brought out of the door easily. Even the smallest donation makes a big difference when every dollar which you donate is matched.
