What is happening? Effective May 1, 2020, the WCMS will no longer be accepting new or changed features from external (non-WCMS team) developers for use with WCMS 2 (Drupal 7).
What is the impact? Custom development work affecting WCMS 2 sites will not be shipped to production as of this date. At that point, any future custom development will only be considered for WCMS 3 (Drupal 8 initially, then Drupal 9) and will be targeted to ship only when the affected sites have been moved to WCMS 3.
What is happening? All WCMS "FDSU", single page, conference and publication sites are being upgraded to WCMS 2.7.1. This release does not affect UWaterloo Scholar sites. Full release notes are available, which are subject to change.
When is this happening?
Pilot sites, wms-dev, and wms-profiles will be updated:
Thursday, May 30 from 7:00 p.m. to Friday, May 31 at 7:00 a.m.
All UWaterloo Scholar sites are being upgraded to UWaterloo Scholar version 1.6 and Open Scholar version 3.103.19. This upgrade is scheduled to be deployed to UWaterloo Scholar production sites overnight on Wednesday, May 8, 2019.
