Drupal 7’s end of life is scheduled for November 2022, just one year from now. CALI is moving it’s D7 website to Drupal 9 by June 2022. I’m hoping Drupal becomes more like WordPress where major version updates are mostly point and click affairs with little or no need to rebuild a site.
The first feature release of Drupal 9 includes the new experimental Olivero frontend theme and various additions to the Claro administration theme. Installer performance is improved 20% and full Composer 2 and PHP 8 support is available. Images with known dimensions are set to lazy-load by default to improve frontend performance.

In a fast moving industry like ours, it is imperative that we have tools that allow us to build environments (front and back-end), quickly, while providing consistency all across.

This looks intriguing. While the demo highlights generating a Drupal 8 theme the underlying tool chain is general enough that it should adaptable for other platforms or straight web theming. Best of all, no Ruby required, making it a bit easier to run on Windows and elsewhere.
