'Drupal 7, which was first released in January 2011, will reach end of
life (EOL) in November of 2021, the Drupal Association said today.
What this means for your Drupal 7 sites is, as of November 2021:
1. Drupal 7 will no longer be supported by the community at large. The
community at large will no longer create new projects, fix bugs in
existing projects, write documentation, etc. around Drupal 7.
2. There will be no more core commits to Drupal 7.
3. The Drupal Security Team will no longer provide support or Security
Advisories for Drupal 7 core or contributed modules, themes, or other
projects. Reports about Drupal 7 vulnerabilities might become public
creating 0 day exploits.
4. All Drupal 7 releases on all project pages will be flagged as not
supported. Maintainers can change that flag if they desire to.
5. On Drupal 7 sites with the update status module, Drupal Core will
show up as unsupported.
6. After November 2021, using Drupal 7 may be flagged as insecure in
3rd party scans as it no longer gets support.
7. Best practice is to not use unsupported software, it would not be
advisable to continue to build new Drupal 7 sites.
8. Now is the time to start planning your migration to Drupal'
