Drop Guard’s successful Showdown with SA-CORE-2018-002

A lot of Drop Guard users faced their first Highly Critical SA-CORE-2018-002 update within the PSA-2018-001 release last week. We interviewed a bunch of them and want to share Drop Guard’s performance with you. This means that we will share its achievements, its flaws and its “should have performed better”.
 

The Good - hard data about Drop Guard's victory

Until today, Drop Guard performed 7370 updates for Drupal agencies and their clients all around the globe.

It's been a pleasure! #DrupalConDublin

Dublin, 27. Sept. 2016. “Describe the DrupalCon in just one word!” - “EXCITING!”

First of all, I want to thank everyone who made my first DrupalCon this awesome and extra special!

Our whole team enjoyed a week full of new experiences, great sessions and - of course - old and new friends! The place, Dublin, was perfect to “seal” a new friendship or strengthen an old one with a good morning coffee (thanks to Commerce Guys by actualys and Mailchimp, the two coffee break sponsors!) or a good cold Guinness (I tried to remember the bar names, but actually I guess I sealed a lot of new friendships..).

 

Drop Guard celebrates full Drupal 8 support

Drop Guard - your service for automated Drupal updates, just announced its full support of Drupal 8. This includes the Drop Guard service, client module and our friendly support, of course!
In case you’re up and running with latest and greatest Drupal release (or if you're just a Drupal and Drop Guard enthusiast), you'll enjoy this update support for your D8 projects.

You'll find a very short survey below. Your participation will help us to keep on rocking our Drop Guard optimization, so thank you very much in advance!

Starting projects with Drupal 8 - Our strategy in 4 steps

We are finally almost there to release Drupal 8 RC1. For us, the release candidate means that Drupal has a stable API, a feature freeze and "should" be free of critical bugs as far as there are no new ones found. That counts for Drupal8 core. We will start with Drupal 8 projects from the release of RC1. The question is only: How to create estimations for a system we, honestly spoken, don't know yet with the same depth of details as we know Drupal 7. There are so many pitfalls related to the decision making of Drupal 8 architectures. As we usually need many contrib modules in our Drupal applications, and this will not change in Drupal 8, they are not yet ready and stable enough for a bug free experience in our development team.
