Drupal 9 was launched on June 3rd, 2020. For those who already chose the Drupal website to represent their business, it means they’ll have to upgrade to D9 at some point. For those who are looking at Drupal as a potential framework for their website, it means improved functionality options. And at last, for those who have never considered this technology, it means there is still a chance you’ll choose it for your next product.

Even though these two versions are quite similar, Drupal 8 won’t be supported after the last update that is scheduled for November 2021. And that’s it – after that, you will eventually need to move to Drupal 9, so might as well begin getting ready for this change now.

In general, Drupal 9.0 core code matches the Drupal 8.9 core. The main differences between Drupal 9.0 and Drupal 8.8 or 8.9 are:

  1.  the removal of deprecated code;
  2.  required upgrades to third-party dependencies.

So to sum up, you should start migrating your website because it will be painless and it will increase the overall quality of your product both for you and for the users. And there are literally zero reasons not to do it.

We believe that anyone out there either using Drupal 7 or 8 will benefit from the upgrade to Drupal 9. We also recommend starting upgrading as soon as possible to not compromise your website safety and functionality.

If you aren’t familiar with Drupal console and you have no idea how to install Drupal, we recommend you hire a specialist – someone like us. We can consult you on how to upgrade your website to the latest option or we can do it for you. Feel free to contact us for a free consultation.
