Drupal 7, the reliable platform that’s been powering websites for quite a while, is getting ready to say goodbye. While Drupal 8 has already waved its farewell and Drupal 9 is counting down to its end in 2023, Drupal 7 is on the horizon with its end-of-life scheduled for January 5, 2025. So it would be wise to avail of Drupal migration services for better website performance.
In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at what it means for Drupal 7 to reach the end of its life, and explore the path ahead for users of this platform. But first, let’s understand what “end-of-life” exactly means.
End-of-Life: What Does That Mean For Software?
The term “end-of-life” (EOL) signals the conclusion of official support for a specific software or product. It means that the software is no longer actively promoted, sold, or maintained.
In the case of Drupal 7, this signifies that the Drupal community and its security team will cease to release security patches and updates after Drupal 7’s official EOL date in November 2022.
