Drupal Urges Swift Move to Version 10.2.1 Amid PHP 8 End of Support

PHP has recently declared the end of support for version 8, a development highlighted in a blog post from Drupal VIP. This declaration has prompted Drupal to recommend a swift transition to version 10.2.1, which is designed to be more reliable and successful. This updated version seamlessly works with PHP 8 and above and continues to receive ongoing fixes and improvements. 

The announcement serves as a crucial heads-up for websites hosted on shared storage servers, as many will be upgrading their PHP to 8.1 or higher, potentially causing site disruptions without proper preparation. PHP's standard support structure ensures that each release branch receives active support for two years, addressing bugs and security issues. Following this period, critical security issues are addressed for an additional year, with releases made on an as-needed basis.
