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.

While none of these issues addressed in these releases were security-related, we do recommend staying up to date with the latest versions of the Drupal Kit packages when possible. Some of the bugs addressed in these releases were only visible under certain conditions, and updating now will prevent those conditions from arising in the future.

Updating an existing codebase

Please visit the UT Drupal Kit 3 documentation for complete release notes and instructions for updating an existing codebase using Composer. Always be sure to check for available database updates after updating the codebase.

Next releases

The 3.x (Drupal 9) branch of the UT Drupal Kit is updated on a bi-monthly maintenance release schedule, with releases targeted for the second Tuesday of odd-numbered months. The next planned release is UT Drupal Kit 3.6.0, due in May 2022. Please see Release Schedule for UT Drupal Kit for more details.
