Backdrop core developers and project leaders are frequently called upon to make important development decisions, with very little information about how site owners and administrators typically use Backdrop CMS and how they configure it. With the release of Backdrop 1.20.0 (and later versions), we hope that situation is getting better, but we need your help.
Though Backdrop 1.6.0 may be considered a minor release, it is packed with new features that improve the powerful content management tools and lays the groundwork for comprehensive file and media management in future releases.
Many Backdrop CMS contributors have been hard at work, and it’s now time to share the fruits of their labor with the rest of the community. Backdrop CMS is proud to announce its 9th on-time release: Backdrop 1.8!
