There is no reason to wait until Drupal 9

Why?

Because instead of building a radically new version of Drupal in a separate codebase, Drupal 9 is being built in Drupal 8.

You might be thinking… “Huh?!”

Well, what this means is that the upgrade experience will be as smooth as a babies bottom.

Drupal 9 will essentially be just like another minor core update in Drupal 8. 

What is a minor core update? Quite simply, it’s the middle number in the version of Drupal you are running.

Core updates come out roughly every 6 months and keeping your site up-to-date with these is critical in making sure it’s well maintained.
