Understanding Drupal Versioning: Decode Update, Upgrade, and Migration Explained

A pictorial representation of the transition of a website from one CMS to Drupal

Yogesh Kushwaha recently shared an informative blog post shedding light on the intricacies of Decode Update, Upgrade, and Migration in Drupal. With Drupal boasting a dedicated security team issuing timely advisories, users are reminded of the importance of applying patches and utilizing correct versions of Drupal core, modules, themes, and profiles. The post delves into how these terms impact real-world projects, emphasizing Drupal's semantic versioning methodology, where the first digit signifies the major version and the second denotes the minor version. 

For instance, a version like 9.5.8 implies utilization of the Drupal 9.5 branch. Users are advised to follow the update procedure to navigate minor updates efficiently, while Drupal Upgrades involve transitioning from a minor to a major version, such as Drupal 9 to Drupal 10. Migration is also outlined as transferring data from external sources like MySQL, MongoDB, WordPress, and Laravel into a Drupal application, adding further clarity to Drupal's evolving ecosystem.
