In that time, we have made 99 releases (both Drupal core and contrib) for D6LTS!
Most of those were security releases, but there were also a handful of bug fixes, and most recently, updates to support PHP 7.2. (FYI: As of a couple days ago, PHP 5 has also reached it’s End-of-Life (EOL) – do you have a plan to update to PHP 7.1 or 7.2?)
When we were first talking to potential customers about D6LTS, I remember many people doubting that we’d be releasing anything at all!
They’d say something like “Drupal 6 has been around so long, aren’t all the security issues shaken out by now?” Almost 100 releases later, and I’d say there was plenty to be done. There still is! 🙂
In this article, I’m going to look back on Drupal 6 LTS, and also look forward to what that may mean for Drupal 7 extended support after it reaches its End-of-Life.
