Drupal 9 officially reached its end of life on November 1st, 2023, marking a significant transition for Drupal enthusiasts. This event signifies the cessation of updates, security patches, and official support for Drupal 9, as the community and core maintainers shift their focus to the future. Drupal's reliance on software projects like Symfony 4, CKEditor 4, and Twig 2 aligns with this evolution.

The end of life for Drupal 9 holds implications for websites built on this version. While existing sites will continue to function, they become increasingly vulnerable to security risks and performance issues. The blog post by Symetris highlights the need to upgrade to Drupal 10, which offers improved content management, enhanced security, performance optimizations, personalization features, and a new front-end theme, among other benefits. It also encourages users to embrace the change and stay secure in the ever-evolving web development landscape.

For websites still running on deprecated Drupal versions, the blog post outlines options, including upgrading to Drupal 10, considering a rebuild, or seeking expert guidance. A resource hub is curated to assist users through the transition, providing step-by-step guides and resources to make the process more accessible. Read more here.
