Today we released new versions of many Drupal 8 media modules. This release is specially important for Entity browser and Entity embed modules since we released the last planned alpha version of those modules. If there will be no critical bugs reported in next two weeks we'll release first beta versions of those modules.
List of all released modules:
Today I am very excited! A while ago I asked my friend David Ličen to help me improve appearance and UX for my personal blog. He carefully observed my desires and added some of his own ideas. When we agreed on the initial mock he proceeded with the theme implementation.
He finished his part a while ago. I needed to tweak few other things on the back-end too, which took me way too long to do. Today I finally decided to finish this and deployed the changes to the live website.
How do you like it?
As you may already heard a big free software conference, Open camps happened at the United nations headquarters in New York last week. As part of the NYC Drupal camp, which was just one of the many camps that happened during it, a week-long Drupal 8 media sprint was held.
Media team had great time there and I would like to share our impressions with you.
My friend and a long time member of the Drupal media team has published a blog post where he thinks about media in Drupal core and possible ways forward.
I am very happy to see mature debate evolving in this area. We need more of that!
In the past few months I gave many talks about the modules that we created as part od Drupal 8 media initiative.
He also wrote a blog post where he explains more technical details.
He wrote an introduction blog post. I'd like to invite you to read it, say hi and follow his work as it progresses through the summer.
Welcome in the Drupal community Vijay!
More than two years ago I gave a session about the future of media at DrupalCon Prague. The outcome of that session was a planning sprint that happened two days after it. One of the ideas that was born on that sprint was Media entity, storage layer for media-related information built with simplicity and support for remotely hosted media in mind.
