Once upon a time the authoring experience (AX) in Drupal left much to be desired. Content editors using Drupal 6 or Drupal 7 glanced longingly across at WordPress editing screens wistfully hoping for some of that ease of use. The flexibility of Drupal from a content management standpoint was never in doubt, but we all just wished that when the edit screen looked so much better and behaved in a manner we were accustomed to when using other modern digital products and services. Well, finally the wait is over!

If you’re reading this post, you’re likely familiar with the Platform.sh CLI, but did you know there is a PHP Client available as well?

This library is invaluable to us at Thinkbean as it allows us to integrate into our internal Symfony based devops application which among other things, we use to monitor application status and health.

In January 2019, there were critical security updates for both Drupal 8 and Drupal 7 made available. Some Drupal code (core, contrib, and custom) may be performing file operations on insufficiently validated user input, thereby being exposed to this vulnerability. Read the releases linked below for more information.

Congratulations! You have a beautiful, shiny new website that has many bells and quite a few whistles. It got launched on time and under budget! Phew, thankfully that is over and done with…

Er, not really.

You could let it sit on the world wide web and do its thing. “Build it and they will come” and all that – but seriously, your shiny new website does need to be maintained. It needs to be polished; it needs to be updated; it needs to be managed to ensure you are getting the best possible return on your investment.
