At Drupal Europe, I announced that Drupal 9 will be released in 2020. Although I explained why we plan to release in 2020, I wasn’t very specific about when we plan to release Drupal 9 in 2020. Given that 2020 is less than 13 months away (gasp!), it’s time to be more specific. Shifting Drupal’s Six-Month Release Cycle We shifted Drupal 8’s minor release windows so we can adopt Symfony’s releases faster.
