Development freeze for external (non-WCMS team) developers – May 2020

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.
