See February 2023 Update – UT Drupal Kit’s Roadmap to Drupal 10 for updates to this post.
- Drupal 10 is scheduled to be released in December 2022.
- Rollout of Drupal 10 to the UT Drupal Kit will be a gradual process over the course of the next four scheduled maintenance releases.
- Owners of customized UTDK sites have specific responsibilities to ensure that their sites will be ready for the final transition to Drupal 10.
- Work on these tasks should start immediately.
(This post includes discussion of the Drupal project’s release cycle and version numbers. For more information, see “Drupal core release cycle: major, minor, and patch releases.”)
Drupal 10 is scheduled to be released on December 14, 2022, with a simultaneous release of Drupal 9.5 as the long-term support (LTS) version of Drupal 9. The end of security support for Drupal 9 is scheduled for November 2023.
As it was with the update from Drupal 8 to 9, the UT Drupal Kit will include the Drupal 10 update as part of a standard maintenance release. But due to the large scope of changes involved in Drupal 10, we plan to make the journey from Drupal 9 to 10 through a series of steps spread over six months, to allow site owners sufficient time to prepare.
Here is an overview of the high-level roadmap through the eventual update to Drupal 10, followed by more detailed discussion of each step.
|Date||UTDK version||Planned change|
|November 2022||3.9.0||Update Drupal Core to 9.4|
|January 2023||3.10.0||Update Drupal Core to 9.5|
