Get ready, Stanford! The Drupal 8 (D8) platform will soon be the new framework for Stanford Sites, Stanford's primary web content management service for over 2,000 websites. To continue to receive security updates and support, Drupal 7 websites will need to move to D8 by 2021. Stanford Web Services (SWS) is currently building and designing D8 on Stanford Sites and is scheduled to deliver the first release by February 2020.
