UT Drupal Kit 2.23 Release

ITS is happy to announce the immediate availability of UT Drupal Kit 2.23.0, the latest maintenance release for our University distribution of the Drupal web content management system. This release includes an update to the latest version of Drupal core, and marks the retirement of the UTLogin module.

DRUPAL CORE UPDATE

The 2.23 release incorporates the most recent release of Drupal Core, bringing it up to the latest version (7.71).

UTLOGIN MODULE RETIREMENT

With the upcoming retirement of the UTLogin service in favor of Enterprise Authentication, the UTLogin module for Drupal is no longer supported and has been removed from the UT Drupal Kit download package.

Site owners who may have previously used the UTLogin module should uninstall the module before updating their site to UT Drupal Kit 2.23.0, in order to avoid missing module warnings.

For assistance uninstalling a module, please email drupal-kit-support@utlists.utexas.edu to open a support ticket.

HOW TO UPDATE THE UT DRUPAL KIT

Complete instructions and download links for updating a UT Drupal Kit site are available on the documentation wiki. Pantheon site dashboards that use the UT Drupal Kit distribution should see the upstream updates available now; see the Pantheon documentation for more information on applying upstream updates.

Please review the changelog thoroughly, and always make backups of your code, files, and database before proceeding with an update!

NEXT RELEASES

The 2.x (Drupal 7) branch of the UT Drupal Kit is updated on a bi-monthly maintenance release schedule, with releases targeted for the second Tuesday of even-numbered months. The next planned release is UT Drupal Kit 7.x-2.23, due on August 11, 2020. Please see 2020 Release Schedule for UT Drupal Kit for more details.
