Drupal 8.3.0-rc1 is available for testing

Drupal - Wed, 03/01/2017 - 08:50

The first release candidate for the upcoming Drupal 8.3.0 release is now available for testing. Drupal 8.3.0 is expected to be released April 5.

Download Drupal-8.3.0-rc1

8.3.x includes new experimental modules for workflows, layout discovery and field layouts; raises stability of the BigPipe module to stable and the Migrate module to beta; and includes several REST, content moderation, authoring experience, performance, and testing improvements among other things. You can read a detailed list of improvements in the announcements of alpha1 and beta1.

What does this mean to me? For Drupal 8 site owners

The final bugfix release of 8.2.x has been released. A final security release window for 8.2.x is scheduled for March 15, but 8.2.x will receive no further releases following 8.3.0, and sites should prepare to update from 8.2.x to 8.3.x in order to continue getting bug and security fixes. Use update.php to update your 8.2.x sites to the 8.3.x series, just as you would to update from (e.g.) 8.2.4 to 8.2.5. You can use this release candidate to test the update. (Always back up your data before updating sites, and do not test updates in production.)

For module and theme authors

Drupal 8.3.x is backwards-compatible with 8.2.x. However, it does include internal API changes and API changes to experimental modules, so some minor updates may be required. Review the change records for 8.3.x, and test modules and themes with the release candidate now.

For translators

Some text changes were made since Drupal 8.2.0. Localize.drupal.org automatically offers these new and modified strings for translation. Strings are frozen with the release candidate, so translators can now update translations.

For core developers

All outstanding issues filed against 8.2.x were automatically migrated to 8.3.x. Future bug reports should be targeted against the 8.3.x branch. 8.4.x will remain open for new development during the 8.3.x release candidate phase. For more information, see the release candidate phase announcement.

Your bug reports help make Drupal better!

Release candidates are a chance to identify bugs for the upcoming release, so help us by searching the issue queue for any bugs you find, and filing a new issue if your bug has not been reported yet.

Blender Used in Hydrographic Printing

Blender 3D News - Tue, 02/28/2017 - 05:15

In hydrographic or 'immersion' printing a layer of colored film floats on a water surface. The object to be printed is dipped in and the color transfers to it. It's a very good technology for simple objects, but once shapes get more complicated it's hard to prepare the film. That is - unless you can [...]
