This week's Web Dev Rev notes were pretty short: we looked at what's next for core patches after the Drupal 8 release (fixing bugs, particularly those that prevent contrib modules from migrating; stabilizing and completing the migrate feature; and front end performance and testing), and we noted that WCMS bug fix release 1.12.2 would be out soon, with notice to be posted as per the usual process.

This week in Web Dev Rev notes, we looked at: the Upgrade Status module, which runs in Drupal 6 and 7 to tell you the status of your modules in Drupal 8; Microsoft's update to EdgeHTML 13 in Microsoft Edge, which improves its HTML5 test score by 56 points; Drupal.org's migration to Fastly, a custom distributed Varnish stack; how you can use Chrome's DevTools to throttle the network, simulating a slower connection; the new visual editing and memory management tools in Firefox Developer Edition 44; Google+'s move to responsive, with self-imposed limits of no more than 60k or HTML, 60k of JavaScript, and 60k of CSS at any one time; and the fact that the Lullabot Podcast is back.

There was also some big Drupal 8 news: Drupal 8 was released; Drush 8 was released (and it's only for Drupal 8); and one person celebrated the Drupal 8 release by installing every major version of Drupal back to 1.0.

This week in Web Dev Rev notes, we looked at: Drupal 8's release date, which happens to be on Dries Buytaert's birthday; Drupal 8's RC3 release, which contains a lot of fixes since RC2; Drupal Core's release schedule; the Wunderkraut's Drupal Gotcha Collection Volume 3; the Site Audit module; and the fact that BADCamp had just gone by, and that many (if not all) of the sessions have had their videos posted on BADCamp's YouTube channel.
