We released new versions of Drupal 7 and Drupal 8 yesterday that fixed a highly critical security bug. All software has security bugs, and fortunately for Drupal, critical security bugs are rare. What matters is how you deal with security releases.

I have the utmost respect for how the Drupal Security Team manages a security release like this — from fixing the bug, testing the solution, providing advance notice, coordinating the release, to being available for press inquiries and more.

The amount of effort, care and dedication that the Drupal Security Team invests to keep Drupal secure is unparalleled, and makes Drupal's security best-in-class. Thank you!

Last month, Matthew Grasmick sparked an important conversation surrounding Drupal's evaluator experience and our approach to documentation. It's become clear that we need to evolve our documentation governance model, in addition to formalizing best practices.

After receiving a tremendous amount of support and feedback, Matthew has continued the conversation by publishing a Documentation Initiative Proposal. Matt's proposal includes an evaluation of our current state, a picture of what success could look like, and what you can do to get involved. If you are passionate about improving Drupal's evaluator experience, I would encourage you to read Matt's proposal!

Yesterday was Father's Day in Belgium. As a gift, Stan drew me this picture. In addition to the thoughtful gesture, I love learning more about the way our kids see us. For me, it's special that Stan understands two important communities in my life.
