Release notes

This is a beta release for the next release of Drupal 8. Betas are good testing targets for developers and site builders who are comfortable reporting (and where possible, fixing) their own bugs. Beta releases are not recommended for non-technical users, nor for production websites. More information on beta releases.

This minor release provides new improvements and functionality without breaking backward compatibility (BC) for public APIs. There may be changes in internal APIs and experimental modules that require updates to contributed and custom modules and themes per Drupal core's backwards compatibility and experimental module policies.

For a full list of other API and feature additions included in the 8.4.0 beta compared to 8.3.x, see the 8.4.0-alpha1 release notes.

The following important issues have been resolved since 8.4.0-alpha1 (in addition to the numerous fixes listed at the end of this post).

Known issues

Drupal 8.4.0-alpha1 includes major version updates for two dependencies: Symfony 3.2 and jQuery 3. Both updates may introduce backwards compatibility issues for some sites or modules, so test carefully. For more information, see the "Third-party library updates" section of the 8.4.0-alpha1 release notes and the "Updated third-party libraries" section below.

Important fixes in this release

The following critical and major bug fixes resolve several problems that affected file usage tracking and translated content, prevented content creation in the Content Moderation module, affected user experience in multiple interfaces, and triggered race conditions in the Batch system, among others.

User and developer experience improvements

The following improvements have been added to this beta (in addition to those that were already included in 8.4.0-alpha1).

Experimental module improvements

This beta release includes several improvements for the experimental modules in 8.4.0-alpha1.

Migrate

Workflows and Content Moderation

The Workflows and Content Moderation modules include numerous fixes since 8.4.0-alpha1. Workflows has now entered the release candidate phase. We expect that Workflows may be available as stable modules in Drupal 8.4.0 unless we identify serious bugs or architectural issues. Content Moderation remains beta stability, as we have identified a critical feature gap because there is no way to find moderated content that requires added views integration for Content Moderation as well as a feature addition to Views itself.

Settings Tray

The 8.4.0-beta release includes numerous Settings Tray fixes since 8.4.0-alpha1. Settings Tray remains at alpha stability but only three unresolved issues remain that block beta stability:

Settings Tray improvements since 8.4.0-alpha1 include:

Updated third-party libraries
