Predictions for 2016

Drupal - Mon, 01/18/2016 - 13:02

Without a doubt, 2015 was one of the Drupal community's best years. We continued to grow and change from being on an island to more of a peninsula. We also released the best Drupal version ever.

If you look back at our predictions for 2015, the Drupal 8 release was one of the most predicted events for the year. Now the question is: what we will be doing in 2016?

Will we have a decoupled Drupal? Will Drupal 9 be released? Will we see a "Drupal 6 Legacy Support" program? It is that time of year when you—yes, you—can predict the future of Drupal; take a look at your crystal ball and describe what you see. Share your deepest thoughts on what will happen for us as a community, what will happen to our code, and the difference our work might make.
