Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 End of Life (EOL)

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.

You may have heard about the DRUPAL 6 FUNERAL at DrupalCon New Orleans. It's true! There certainly was a fun funeral for Drupal 6 - we even put together a montage of some of the highlights. Of course, we at myDropWizard joked that perhaps we should have dressed as "the ghost of Drupal 6".
