Backdrop 1.1 Released!

The first minor release version delivered on May 15, 2015 and it's full of great features!

It's been 4 months since our the 1.0 release. According to our Roadmap, that means it is time for our first minor version: 1.1.0!

Backdrop Branched for 1.0.x

When Backdrop was released a little over a month ago, we decided to concentrate our resources on stabilization. We've hammered out those inevitable first-release bugs, and we have a steady-stream of pull-requests coming in against Backdrop for the 1.1.0 version. It's now time to branch the project to separate the new features from the bug fixes. Since this is the first branch we've created in the Backdrop project, it's a good time to recap how we're handling branch management.

Drupal and Backdrop meet Drush and Drupal Console

Tonight I was reading up on the history of the Drupal Console. It started after seeing a tweet that seemed to indicate that the Drupal Console project is headed towards full command-line abilities to control Drupal. Up until recently, the Drupal Console has been described mostly as a "scaffolding tool" for Drupal 8, which would help save developers from boilerplate code.

One-month retrospective on Backdrop CMS

Exactly one month ago, we made the final release tag on Backdrop CMS 1.0.0. Backdrop has been the effort of more than 50 contributors over the span of 16 months, and I am positively thrilled with the product that we've delivered. Now that things have calmed down a little bit, I'd like to recap and check on the progress we've made.
