Technology is changing at the speed of light. Fuelled by the democratisation of innovation, the tempo of change and adoption is multiplying. Today, 5G is a major talking point in the industry. IoT is changing at scale. Data is becoming the centre of the IT universe with digital twins, spatial computing, artificial intelligence, deep analytics and new applied versions of technology all being dependent on data platforms. And, Hyperloop is leveraging magnetic levitation and big vacuum pumps to let those bus-sized vehicles zip along at speeds approaching Mach 1.
Drupal 9.0 was launched earlier this month as a continuation of Drupal 8. This time around, the core update was more about updating the technology underlying Drupal’s codebase and eliminating dependencies than introducing brand-new features, but fear not: we’ll be getting some of those soon enough.
The recent official launch of Drupal 9.0 represents 4 and a half years of improvements (and more than 4,500 individual contributors) to the open source CMS designed to support the most ambitious digital experiences. The official party line, so to speak, is that “the big deal about Drupal 9 is that it’s not a big deal.”
