UT Drupal Kit 3 – Beta 2 release

ITS has posted the second beta release of UT Drupal Kit 3.0 (UTDK 3).

This release incorporates the 8.8.0-beta1 release of Drupal Core, along with a number of small bug fixes and improvements.

Please visit the UT Drupal Kit 3 documentation for complete release notes and instructions for updating an existing 3.0.0-beta.1 codebase using Composer. The Drupal 8.8.0-beta1 update does include database updates, so be sure to run database updates after updating the codebase.

A note about beta releases

This is a beta release for the next major version of the UT Drupal Kit. Betas are good testing targets for developers and site builders who are comfortable reporting (and where possible, fixing) their own bugs. Beta releases are not recommended for non-technical users, nor for production websites.

How do I get started with UTDK 3?

The first thing anyone interested in starting with UTDK 3 should do is to head over to our brand-new documentation site:

https://drupalkit.its.utexas.edu/docs/

The “What is the UT Drupal Kit?” chapter contains detailed explanations of what the Kit contains, as well as a list of differences between versions 2 and 3.

The “Getting Started” chapter includes technical requirements for running version 3, as well as detailed instructions for setting up an environment on your own local workstation, a LAMP server, or Pantheon.

If you run into problems or have questions, please check the “Support” page for available support options.

 

UT Drupal Kit 2.19.4 Security Release

ITS has posted a patch-level release of the UT Drupal Kit in order to address a critical security vulnerability in the SimpleSAMLphp library.

This release is only available via Pantheon upstream repository, as SimpleSAMLphp is not bundled with the standalone download version of the UT Drupal Kit.

It is recommended that all users of the UT Drupal Kit on Pantheon update their sites with this latest version as soon as practicable.

How to Update the UT Drupal Kit

Complete instructions for updating a UT Drupal Kit site are available on the documentation wiki.
