Drupal 6 LTS Until (at least) 2023 - and Thoughts on Drupal 7ES!

Drupal 6 just might live forever.

This isn't so much an announcement as it is a reminder: if you know of any sites out there running Drupal 6, they probably want to make sure we keep supporting it!

Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 End of Life (EOL)

by Elliot Christenson on June 2, 2021 - 8:41pm

What Does Drupal “End of Life” (EOL) Even Mean?

In the Drupal world, when a version reaches EOL status, the community comes to a consensus to not issue new free updates or offer free support for that version. The intention is to allow community resources to get focused on new versions. This means new features aren't added, modern standards don't get implemented, and bugs don't get fixed for the older versions. Drupal 6 is currently in this EOL status. Thousands of these D6 sites require Long Term Support from a vendor like myDropWizard or extreme vigilance by their owners.

Drupal 6 Long-Term Support Extended to 2023 - and What About Drupal 7?

One more year? Sure. Why not!?

When we originally announced that we'd be providing Drupal 6 Long-Term Support, we committed to supporting our customers until at least February 2017.

We've made pretty regular announcements in the past extending things far beyond that original end-date.

Today, we're announcing that we'll be extending our Drupal 6 Long-Term Support (D6LTS) until at least February 2023!

Two years ago, we had a blog post with the same title: So, When Do I REALLY Need to Upgrade From Drupal 7? A lot has changed in the past two years. In the world, of course, but also in Drupal.

Drupal 7 was released on January 5, 2011. It's nearly 10 years old and going strong!
Drupal 8 was released on November 19, 2015 which itself is nearly 5 years old!
