Acquia Readies Support for Drupal 10
Products for developers, designers, and marketers prepared for the most powerful version of Drupal to date
CHICAGO, November 17, 2022 – Digital experience company Acquia is set to support Drupal 10 when the open source community releases it on December 14. Acquia will be the first Drupal company to support migration for organizations upgrading to Drupal 10. The company made the announcement at its customer and partner event, Acquia Engage, in Chicago.
Acquia’s many products are ready for the newest version of the popular open source framework for building digital experiences. These include Acquia Code Studio and Cloud IDE developer tools, low-code Acquia Site Studio and Site Factory solutions for building and managing experiences, Acquia CMS and Acquia DAM for managing and publishing content, and Acquia Personalization for one-to-one experiences. Many customers are already beta testing Drupal 10 on Acquia Cloud Platform. They can also begin upgrading their sites on their Acquia Cloud Enterprise or Acquia Cloud Next development environments.
Acquia is the largest contributor to Drupal 10, and has contributed all updates required to make Acquia CMS compatible with Drupal 10 back to the Drupal community.
Dries Buytaert, co-founder and CTO of Acquia and creator of Drupal, commented: “The community has made Drupal 10 the most powerful version to date, with features that enhance the developer, editor, and designer experience. Acquia products will support these features as soon as the Drupal Association and community release Drupal 10. We look forward to its release and to guiding our customers as they upgrade to take full advantage of the newest capabilities.”
After Drupal 10’s release, companies will have 11 months to update their applications from Drupal 9 to 10 to avoid potential unmaintained third-party dependencies. A timely upgrade reduces this risk, and allows their technical and marketing teams to take advantage of the innovative features that the open source community has contributed to Drupal 10.

"Drupal 10 will be a milestone for the marketer experience: Between the new rich text editor and the complete overhaul of the editorial theme, Drupal has never been as easy to use,” said Justin Emond, CEO and founder, Third and Grove. “We’re excited to be the top agency contributor to Drupal 10 and look forward to supporting customers migrating to it when released by the community."
