Drupal 10 will be released on 14th December 2022.

It's time for Drupal 10! Even though Drupal 9 was just released last summer, your business should be ready for the latest features that Drupal 10 has to offer. December will be an important month in the Drupal world as the official Drupal community has planned two major releases.

Drupal 9.5 and Drupal 10 will be available in December 2022. Drupal 9.5 will be Drupal 9's final release, including the majority of new features of Drupal 10. The most significant difference is that Drupal 10 will remove all deprecations from Drupal 9. Instead of conducting a complete rebuild, project owners can gradually update their custom code for Drupal 10 and distribute it to their Drupal 9 production sites.

All About Drupal 10: New Features

There are going to be various new features available in version 10. Of course, the critical change that somewhat launches the production of Drupal 10 is the latest version of Symfony, just as it was with the shift from version 8 to version 9. Drupal 10 will be built on Symfony 5.4. However, version 6 is already in the works.

In short, all of these main components, such as CKEditor 4 to CKEditor 5, Symfony 4 to Symfony 5, Composer 1 to Composer 2, and PHP 7 to PHP 8, will be upgraded to the following version.

Drupal 10 Key Features are:

  • Default Theme Olivero (Replacing Bartik)
  • Administration Theme - Claro (Replacing Seven)
  • CKEditor 5 provides a better authoring experience as well as more current editing capabilities (replacing CKEditor 4)
  • Better decoupled developer and site builder experience, especially when it comes to menu and URL handling
  • Layout Builder and Media capabilities have been improved.
  • Theme Starterkit is a set of tools for creating custom themes.
  • Some jQuery will be replaced with modern JavaScript components.
  • Symfony 6 (replacing Symfony 4) and PHP 8.1 (for PHP 7) are necessary for security.
