Shortly after DrupalSouth in November, Drupal 8 will be end of life. For those still on Drupal 7, it might seem like the 'new kid on the block', but actually Drupal 8 is already 6 years old. In fact, Drupal 9 is fast approaching its 2nd birthday. With Drupal 7 and 8 we became accustomed to long major release cycles for Drupal core, but this wasn't always the case. With this in mind we look to our next major release, Drupal 10, which will be released next year, around two years after Drupal 9. So why are the major release cycles getting shorter? Is this something we can expect to continue? What's driving these shorter cycles? These questions and more will be addressed in this session, as well as a look to what we can expect to see in Drupal 10... and beyond!
