I remember poking into Backdrop's code for the first time back in October 2014, when we tried to set it up on Drupion (the older incarnation of our company). According to a popular Russian proverb, "the first pancake is always wonky," so we ran into our first Backdrop problem right then. However, with the valuable input from the Backdrop community members we quickly made necessary changes and got it up and running.
Backdrop CMS turned 6 years on January 15, 2021 and on the same day the Backdrop community has proudly released version 1.18.0. Congratulations to all users and developers of Backdrop CMS - the open source CMS that helps you build websites for businesses and non-profits in the best traditions of Drupal 7!

As the global pandemic of the COVID-19 continues to develop, we wanted to reach out to our current and prospective customers and let you know how AltaGrade is dealing with the Coronavirus emergency.
As we are approaching the year 2020 we would like to thank you for entrusting your Drupal, Backdrop and WordPress websites to us. We appreciate your business with AltaGrade and assure you that we will deliver more convenient features to our hosting platform and better enhancements to our ticket processing and billing portal in 2020.
Update of June 5, 2019: We have to re-send this newsletter once again, because when contacted about migration some customers reported they didn't receive previous notifications about Drupion-AltaGrade transformation.
I am delighted to announce today that a hosting provider previously known as Drupion changes its jurisdiction from San Jose, California to Seattle, Washington and re-launches as AltaGrade LLC, a web-hosting company for everybody created by nerds who know the best of and love to support Drupal, Backdrop, WordPress, Joomla and thousands of other most popular web applications running on Linux.
