Maintenance release of the Drupal 7 series. Includes bug fixes and small API/feature improvements only (no major, non-backwards-compatible new functionality).
No security fixes are included in this release.
This release is the first where D7 core's test suite passes tests in PHP 8.0. However, there may be remaining problems with PHP 8 in core, and it's very likely that there are problems in contrib. Please test, and report any problems in the appropriate issue queue.
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!

Posts and pages feel faster, thanks to lazy-loaded images.
Images give your story a lot of impact, but they can sometimes make your site seem slow.
In WordPress 5.5, images wait to load until they’re just about to scroll into view. The technical term is ‘lazy loading.’
