The last 4 months, we have been busy getting the MVP for Rules in Drupal 8 ready. Thanks to the funding by Acquia, drunomics & epiqo - fago and klausi were able to dedicate 316 hours on implementing the most critical features to complete milestone 2 (of 3) for #d8rules.
So what has been done:
We are proud to announce completion of milestone 1 for the #d8rules initiative. After a year of intense working on porting the Rules module to Drupal 8, we can now officially close the first round of implementation.
Curious why the Rules module still isn't finished, even when our initial milestone planning aimed to ship Rules 8.x by 2014? The bad news is we are a bit delayed, but that pretty much aligns with the state of Drupal 8 core. And we are working hard on solving problems in a generic way for entire Drupal core instead of having to fork APIs in Rules.
DrupalCon Amsterdam is coming close and we are working hard to get Milestone 1 for porting the Rules module to Drupal 8 done. Here's an outline where you can join fago, klausi, nico and many others for updates on the initiative, discussions and hands-on during the sprints!
