Drupal 9 was released last month on drupal.org. Pantheon Co-Founder Matthew Cheney wrote on our blog about the significance of this release for the Drupal community.
Drupal 8.9.1, 8.8.8, and 7.7.2
Drupal 8.9.1, Drupal 8.8.8, and Drupal 7.7.2 are now available on the Pantheon platform. These are security releases; all sites are urged to update as soon as possible. Detailed information on applying and debugging core updates can be found in the Core Updates documentation. For more information, see the Drupal 8.9.1, Drupal 8.8.8, and Drupal 7.7.2 release notes.
WordPress 5.4.2 is now available on the Pantheon platform. As part of this release, Pantheon also rolled out a configuration change to block xmlrpc by default. If your site uses xmlrpc, re-enable it before deploying this release to production.
Although it places load on the platform, Pantheon now excludes traffic from Petalbot, which would otherwise count towards your website’s total traffic.
- New: Traffic Overages and the Site Plan offers a concise reference for understanding site traffic and site plans.
- Metrics in the Site Dashboard and Traffic Limits and Overages have been updated to help clarify what Pantheon counts as site visits and pages served, and to make Pantheon’s policies regarding overages more transparent.
- As part of our commitment to more inclusive language, Pantheon recently switched to using
allowlist, and pantheon.io/docs has renamed its default Git branch to
main. Learn more about inclusive language at Google’s Writing inclusive documentation guide.
