NOTICE: Update to Drupal 7 or 8; Drupal 6 no longer supported

Friday, February 26, 2016

This information is intended for U-M IT staff who are responsible for university websites that use the Drupal content management system.

If you are responsible for a university website that uses the Drupal content management system, please make sure that you are using version 7 or 8. Drupal ended support for version 6 on February 24, 2016. This means Drupal 6 has no community or infrastructure support, and there will be no security team support for D6 or D6 modules.

We ask that you not use unsupported software. Running software beyond its end-of-life date exposes university data and systems to risks.

If you are already running Drupal 7 or 8, be sure to apply the most recent updates after appropriate testing. Updated version were released on February 24.

  • Drupal 7.43. This release fixes several security vulnerabilities.
  • Drupal 8.0.4. This release fixes several security vulnerabilities.
