Unlocking the Future with Drupal 10: Here's What to Know

Embracing the future often means navigating change

In the ever-evolving world of open-source solutions, Heavy Penguin remains committed to bringing forth clarity. Drupal, a cornerstone of our focus, is about to transition from Drupal 9 to the much-anticipated Drupal 10. So, what does this shift entail?

1. An Upgraded Experience

Drupal 10 isn’t just a version upgrade; it's a step-up in user experience. The new version is expected to bring better performance, enhanced media management, and an improved layout builder, making it more user-friendly and efficient.

2. Symfony and CKEditor Progress

Drupal 9 users are familiar with Symfony 4 and CKEditor 5. But with Drupal 10, expect a transition to Symfony 5/6, ensuring a more secure, speedy, and optimized web experience. Similarly, the CKEditor is set to receive updates enhancing content editing capabilities.

3. Embrace the New, But Stay Rooted

While Drupal 10 promises numerous enhancements, it's rooted in the same ethos of community-driven improvements that Drupal has always championed. This means the transition, while introducing new features, retains the familiarity that users have grown to love.

4. Extension and Module Readiness

One of the concerns with transitions is module compatibility. The good news? Drupal 10 aims for a smoother transition, with many modules designed to be compatible with both Drupal 9 and 10, ensuring fewer disruptions.

5. Plan, Don't Panic
