The 3.15.0 release is part of the Drupal Kit’s normal, bi-monthly maintenance release schedule. There are no major changes in this release, just the usual mix of bugfixes and improvements. Please note three changes described below:
NOTE: Due to an update problem identified in the 3.14.0 release, the 3.14.1 bugfix release was created prior to the 3.14.0 release announcement.
This serves as the release announcement for both 3.14.0 and 3.14.1. For specific details about the 3.14.1 bugfix, please see the release notes.
The 3.14.0 release is part of the Drupal Kit’s normal, bi-monthly maintenance release schedule. There are two substantial enhancements included in this release: the ability to draft content prior to publication, and the ability to apply display styles through the rich text editor. These, along with other of-note changes, are described below.
NOTE: Due to a regression introduced in the 3.13.0 release, the 3.13.1 bugfix release was created prior to the 3.13.0 release announcement.
This serves as the release announcement for both 3.13.0 and 3.13.1. For details about the 3.13.1 bugfix, please see the release notes.
The 3.13.0 release is part of the Drupal Kit’s normal, bi-monthly maintenance release schedule. There are no major changes in this release, just the usual mix of bugfixes and improvements. Four changes of note are described below:
As previously reported in the post “Potential disruption to UT Drupal Kit’s Twitter feed functionality,” planned changes to the Twitter API (application programming interface) were anticipated to break the current implementation included in the UT Drupal Kit for embedding Twitter timelines into pages.
As of May 22, 2023, this change appears to have gone into effect (without prior announcement of a specific date), and the Twitter component included in the UT Drupal Kit is no longer working. Existing Twitter blocks on pages will simply show with the title of the block, but no Tweets below it.
At this time, we do not plan to replace the Twitter Feed component, but encourage the use of Twitter Publish as a substitute. This is a free, simple interface for users to create embeddable Twitter feeds that could be placed on any site by copying the
<iframe> code generated from https://publish.twitter.com to a block using the “Full HTML” text format.
This option works independently of the UTDK Twitter Feed component, does not require creating a Twitter developer account, and is available today for site owners to use. For examples of advanced options such as limiting the number of Tweets displayed, please see the Timelines documentation on https://developer.twitter.com.
Feedback from several UT Drupal Kit customers has been that Twitter Publish is easy to use, and the appearance of the resulting Twitter feeds is actually superior to that of the native Drupal component.
If you have additional questions about the Twitter Feed component and these changes, please open a support ticket by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
UT Drupal Kit 3.12.0 is a bi-monthly maintenance release for the University of Texas at Austin’s custom distribution of the Drupal web content management system.
This release is notable in that it includes a major version update from Drupal 9 to Drupal 10. Campus developers should carefully read the release notes below before updating. Site managers and content editors, on the other hand, should not expect any noteworthy changes: site display, behavior, and editing experience are not changing in any substantive way.
The 3.12.0 maintenance release of the UT Drupal Kit, which will include the update to Drupal 10, was originally scheduled for Tuesday, May 23, 2023.
In order to allow sufficient time for internal testing, this release is being delayed two weeks, to Tuesday, June 6, 2023.
We encourage site owners to use this additional time to ensure that their sites are prepared for the Drupal 10 update. Please review “February 2023 Update – UT Drupal Kit’s Roadmap to Drupal 10” for an overview of all necessary changes.
NOTE: The previous official release of the UT Drupal Kit was numbered 3.11.1. During the packaging process of this hotfix release, a version 3.11.2 was briefly available but immediately revoked due to an error in the packaging process. Please ensure that all sites are updated to 3.11.3 as the most recent version.
UT Drupal Kit 3.11.3 is an interim release outside of the normal bi-monthly maintenance release cycle. This release contains a Drupal core update and a patch to fix a fatal error in the XML Sitemap module (
xmlsitemap). This release also corrects metatag data that was incorrectly formatted during site migrations from Drupal 7.
There are no additional manual update steps required for this update.
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.
If you have integrated the University’s EID-based Enterprise Authentication (see documentation) on a UT Drupal Kit site, you will need to make a change to its the site’s Composer package requirements to be able to update to Drupal 10.
NOTE: Please see updated information on this issue at “Disruption to UT Drupal Kit’s Twitter feed functionality.”
The UT Drupal Kit team has become aware of the impending retirement of Twitter’s “V1.1” API (application programming interface). This API is used by the “Twitter Profile Widget” module for Drupal to retrieve data from Twitter and populate the Drupal Kit’s Twitter Feed component.
NOTE: Due to a regression introduced in the 3.11.0 release, the 3.11.1 bugfix release was created prior to the 3.11.0 release announcement.
This serves as the release announcement for both 3.11.0 and 3.11.1. For details about the 3.11.1 bugfix, please see the release notes.
UT Drupal Kit 3.11.0 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 the usual mix of bugfixes and visual improvements, there are several notable changes in this release including the update to PHP 8 as the default version of PHP for sites hosted on Pantheon, the update to CKEditor 5, and the addition of an Instagram feed component.
This release also continues to pave the way for the planned update to Drupal 10 in the next scheduled maintenance release. Please see below for a special note about base themes and an action item for site owners using a custom theme that is NOT a subtheme of Forty Acres.
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.
