Icon font changes in UT Drupal Kit 2.5

For those updating to the new UT Drupal Kit 2.5 — the icon font in the Forty Acres theme has been renamed in this release, so if you have a STARTERKIT-based subtheme from an older version of the Drupal Kit, you may need to make some minor adjustments in your subtheme.

Documentation for this issue is available on the wiki.

UT Drupal Kit 2.5 Release

ITS is happy to announce the immediate availability of UT Drupal Kit 2.5, the fifth maintenance release for our University distribution since the inclusion of the Forty Acres theme and the Page Builder module.

This release includes an update to Drupal core 7.53, as well as a number of contrib module updates, enhancements to custom functionality, and small bug-fixes.

Update on UT Drupal Kit Release Cycle

In October 2015, we outlined a more predictable UT Drupal Kit Release Cycle to include bi-monthly maintenance releases, which would be released on or around the first Tuesday of the month.

We are updating this target release schedule just slightly to make sure that the regular Drupal core bugfix release window on the first Wednesday of the month has passed before we test and package the Drupal Kit for release. Instead, we will release on or around the second Tuesday of the month.

The updated target release schedule going forward looks like this:

  • December 13, 2016 – UT Drupal Kit 7.x-2.5
  • February 14, 2017 – UT Drupal Kit 7.x-2.6
  • April 11, 2017 – UT Drupal Kit 7.x-2.7

Any further adjustments to this schedule will be announced on this blog and on the UT Drupal users mailing list.

If you have questions or concerns about the UTDK release cycle, please feel free to email us at drupal-kit-support@utlists.utexas.edu.
