UT Drupal Kit 3.6.0/3.6.1 release

NOTE: Due to a minor visual regression error introduced in the 3.6.0 release, the 3.6.1 bugfix release was created prior to the 3.6.0 release announcement.

 

This serves as the release announcement for both 3.6.0 and 3.6.1. For details about the 3.6.1 bugfix, please see the release notes.

UT Drupal Kit 3.6.0 is a bi-monthly maintenance release for the University of Texas at Austin’s custom distribution of the Drupal web content management system. In addition to core and contrib module updates and the usual mix of bugfixes and visual improvements, the 3.6.0 release contains two new features: a “Hero Carousel” component, and a “Calendar of Events” display option in the Event add-on.

Callouts for the most impactful changes follow below. For full details of all issues included in this release, please refer to the changelog on the release notes, which links to the corresponding GitHub issues.

Recent UT Drupal Kit 3 hotfix releases

Since the release of UT Drupal Kit 3.5.0 on March 25, there have been multiple interim hotfix releases for various components of the Kit, including the main installation profile and all three of the add-on features (Events, News, Profiles).

The release notes for the 3.5.1 and 3.5.2 hotfixes detail all of the issues which have been addressed in these releases.

UT Drupal Kit 2.30.1 Release

ITS has posted a patch-level release of the UT Drupal Kit in order to address a regression introduced in the 2.30.0 release (announced yesterday, August 11, 2021) which could cause sites to fail after applying the updates.

UT Drupal Kit 3 – Beta 10.2 Release

ITS has posted a hotfix for the most recent beta release of UT Drupal Kit 3.0 (UTDK 3).

The 3.0.0-beta.10.2 release fixes a bug that prevents JavaScript from being loaded in certain circumstances. The only observed regression was that pages that use Search API facets with checkboxes would no longer display.

Once a site is updated to version 3.0.0-beta.10.2, JavaScript on pages should load normally.

UT Drupal Kit 3 – Beta 8.1 Release

ITS has posted a hotfix for the most recent beta release of UT Drupal Kit 3.0 (UTDK 3).

The 3.0.0-beta.8.1 release resolves a bug introduced in the 3.0.0-beta.8 release, which was made publicly available on November 10, 2020.

Specifically, the bug would cause an unrecoverable white screen on pages that contained Promo Units that were configured to use any display other than the default.

This is resolved in 3.0.0-beta.8.1. Sites that already updated to 3.0.0-beta.8 should update to 3.0.0-beta.8.1 to fix this issue.
