This (two!) weeks in Drupal Core: October 30, 2013

What's new with Drupal 8?

Greetings! We took a week off last week to attend BADCamp. There was sprinting-o-plenty, as well as tons of sessions on Drupal 8.

In the meantime, a lovely new Drupal 8 landing page has launched, which includes a list of major new features, information about the current state of the release, and a nice, big, green, demo button!

There's also been movement to create and centralize expanded Drupal 8 developer API documentation on Drupal.org, including sections on the new routing system and the new entity API.

And speaking of Drupal.org, don't forget to get your patches downloaded in advance of the Drupal.org D7 launch, when d.o will be down for 24 hours. Please take the opportunity to go outdoors in the sun and otherwise step away from the computer. :)
