Congratulations on Drupal 9 🎉

Drupal 9 release

Congratulations to the Drupal community on today’s release of Drupal 9! It’s another amazing milestone in the 20-year story of Drupal. Drupal 9 is set up to make migration from Drupal 8 easy, and is very much an incremental step, incorporating newer versions of Symfony and modernizing Drupal with a cleaner, leaner codebase. Thank you to all the contributors of every stripe who lent their time, expertise, and enthusiasm to making and sharing Drupal 9!

Join in the worldwide Drupal 9 celebrations at Celebrate Drupal. You’ll find music and art and just a general good time connecting with Drupalists from around the world. It’s good to see everyone 🙂

Ready to take Drupal 9 for a spin in a local development environment? As of today, you can start up Drupal 9 in DDEV-Local using this simple recipe:

mkdir my-drupal9-site
cd my-drupal9-site
ddev config --project-type=drupal9 --docroot=web --create-docroot
ddev start
ddev composer create "drupal/recommended-project"
ddev composer require drush/drush
ddev launch

or see the DDEV-Local docs for the official Drupal 9 quickstart guide.

Have fun exploring, or even contributing, and we look forward to seeing what you build with Drupal 9 and DDEV!
