Drupal 7.50 released | Drupal.org

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 13:21 -- rprice

Yes, there is a version jump compared to the previous 7.44 release; this is to indicate that this Drupal 7 point release is a bit larger than past ones and makes a few more changes and new features available than normal.

Updating your existing Drupal 7 sites is recommended. Backwards compatibility is still being maintained, although read on to find out about a couple of changes that might need your attention during the update.

Yes, Drupal 8 is slower than Drupal 7 - here's why | Jeff Geerling

Thu, 03/31/2016 - 13:21 -- rprice

The image above illustrates how BigPipe can help even slow-to-render pages deliver usable content to the browser very quickly. If you have a block in a sidebar that pulls in some data from an external service, or only one tiny user-specific block (like a "Welcome, Jeff!" widget with a profile picture) that takes a half second or longer to render, Drupal can now serve the majority of a page immediately, then send the slower content when it's ready.

Safe cache_form Clear | Drupal.org

Thu, 03/10/2016 - 15:57 -- rprice

Safely remove a limited number of items from the cache_form table. This module provides a drush command drush safe-cache-form-clear that can be run at a high frequency, keeping the table at a reasonable size. It requires that you use the database cache back-end for the cache_form table. Drupal's core cron can have problems clearing out the cache_form table when it grows extremely large. This module works around this by limiting the number of items expired from the cache in a single run, dealing with a single manageable chunk at a time.
