GovCMS D9 update 2.22.0 Oct 5, 2022 05:00 - Oct 7, 2022 10:00 AEDT
Advice
- Who is affected: GovCMS Drupal 9 (D9) community
- Distribution was updated on Tuesday 4 October 2022
- It addresses a recent security advisory issued by Drupal.org
- It impacts Drupal core’s code that extends the Twig third-party library for content templating and sanitization. For more information Twig has also released a security update and has rated the vulnerability as high severity.
- Nothing was added/removed from the distribution
- No outages are expected to websites during the deployment process.
- The D9 distribution will continue to be supported after this update.
- If you have any concerns, raise a ticket at https://www.govcms.support


Deployment schedule plan:
- Commence from 5am Wednesday 5 October 2022
- Conducted throughout the daytime and into the evening.
- Production branches completed by 10am Thursday 6 October 2022
- Non-Production branches completed by 10am Friday 7 October 2022

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 1: deployments during maintenance window
- During the scheduled maintenance window, ALL D9 SaaS deployments will be blocked while we deploy to the D9 Production branches.
- PaaS and D7 deployments schedules are not impacted.

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 2: update local environments
- Ensure you update your local environments to the latest release. Not rebasing your codebase results in mismatched database configuration causing errors in forklifts and deployments.

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 3: for customers with configuration management enabled
- The latest configuration from your production database has been created for you in GitLab in a branch called action-required/latest-config-export.
- You need to review and test the changes in the merge request. Once you are satisfied, please check the “Delete source branch” box and click “Merge”.
- This MUST be done before any new commits.
- All subsequent deployments will be blocked in the CI pipeline until this merge request branch is deleted
- Not merging the latest configuration provided could result in your new database configuration reverting to an older version when you next deploy, potentially causing issues for your website.
- If no merge request is lodged after a release then no configuration has changed and no further action is required.


Module updates
- Drupal Core from 9.4.5 to 9.4.7 (https://www.drupal.org/sa-core-2022-016 ; https://www.drupal.org/project/drupal/releases/9.4.7)


Information for PaaS customers
- If you use the GovCMS D9 distribution. You should aim to apply this update to your distribution as soon as possible.
- Updated files will be available from https://github.com/govCMS/GovCMS/releases/tag/2.22.0

❗ IMPORTANT NOTICE 4: copy default.services.yml prior to updating
- This release includes a change to default.services.yml.
- It adds a twig.config.allowed_file_extensions configuration setting to restrict file types that may be loaded with Twig for security.
- Site owners should make a copy of their default.services.yml prior to updating to ensure any custom modifications are retained.
- Following this release, by default, Twig may load the following file types: .css ; .html ; .js ; .svg ; .twig
- If your site, module, or theme must load additional file types via Twig, consult the documentation for twig.config.allowed_file_extensions in default.services.yml.
