The Drupal Security Team will be coordinating a security release for Drupal 7 and 8 this week on Wednesday, May 8th, 2019.
We are issuing this PSA in advance because according to the regular security release window schedule, May 8th would not typically be a core security window.
This release is rated as moderately critical.
The Drupal 7 and 8 core release will be made between 16:00 – 21:00 UTC (noon – 5:00pm Eastern).
May 8th also remains a normal security release window for contributed projects.
