Drupal 6 End-of-Life Is Here

As promised, as of today, three months after the release of Drupal 8, the Drupal community will no longer support Drupal 6. The Drupal 6 end of life is upon us.  What this means for organizations with websites built in D6:

  • The Drupal community will no longer create new projects, fix bugs in existing projects, or write documentation, etc. for Drupal 6.
  • There will be no more core commits to the official tree on Drupal 6.x.
  • Drupal.org’s security team will no longer provide support or Security Advisories for Drupal 6
  • All Drupal 6 releases on project pages will be flagged as not supported.
  • At some point in the future update status may stop working for Drupal 6 sites.
  • Hosting providers such as BlackMesh will no longer provide any support to D6 sites.

Kanopi studios will continue to provide limited support to clients with Drupal 6 sites as they evaluate a path to upgrade to Drupal 7 or Drupal 8. Organizations with Drupal 6 sites should plan to upgrade their site as soon as possible.

For questions about upgrading to Drupal 7 or 8, please contact us.
