Drupal 8 and older Drupal versions are now officially unsupported. If you're still on one of these versions, your site is vulnerable to security risks. And you're missing out on huge improvement opportunities with Drupal 9.

Drupal 9 is no longer the new kid on the block with the launch of Drupal 10 in December 2022.
Drupal 9's end of life date is now set for November 2023, after which point it will no longer be supported. The key reason for upgrading is that Drupal uses a lot of Symfony code, and Symfony 4 reaches its end of life in November 2023.
We're working through upgrade paths with multiple clients - as well as our own site - so are ready to support you on your journey to Drupal 10.
Upgrading from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9
Drupal 8 is officially 'end of life' and unsupported. Stay on the platform and you'll miss out on new features and put your site and data at serious risk.
The good news is that upgrading from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 is relatively easy. And not much different from a regular version upgrade.
The key areas to consider are checking all your modules are compatible with D9, and ensuring any customisations are too.
Don't delay. Secure your Drupal website today.
Upgrading from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9
If you're on Drupal 7, then migrating straight to Drupal 9 is your best upgrade route to ensure maximum expected life for your site.
Yes, migrating from Drupal 7 to Drupal 9 is a full rebuild of your site. But the move to Drupal 9 ensures that you benefit from new innovation and capabilities each year. Drupal 9 has hundreds of extra capabilities, with more on the horizon. Once you've migrated, all future updates will be much easier.
Digital platform migrations are rarely straightforward, and that's why we recommend speaking with one of our experienced consultants to get the full picture.
