On the Horizon

The Campus Web Solutions team is continuously working on improvements to the Drupal offering. The following list is a guide to what is "On the Horizon". Please note that release dates are tentative as new projects and other issues arise. The team has to fully test new modules and changes to make sure everything works as intended. This can be an extensive, lengthy process. Drupal sprint releases are typically scheduled once per month.
