Get ready for Drupal 9

Drupal 9 is the first major Drupal release that doesn’t require a rewrite of your applications. The big change is that deprecated parts of the CMS are simply being taken out. The Drupal ‘ecosystem’ has announced these deprecations in advance, which means almost all the code we write in Drupal 8 sites are also Drupal 9-ready.

What does this mean? When the Drupal project deprecates something in the Drupal core, it doesn’t always mean that piece of functionality is leaving Drupal. Instead, it often means there is a more modern way of accomplishing that outcome, so we choose to remove the old way to keep your Drupal project lean and clean.
