Upgrading your existing Drupal 7 sites is strongly recommended. There are no new features or non-security-related bug fixes in this release. For more information about the Drupal 7.x release series, consult the Drupal 7.0 release announcement.

Security information

We have a security announcement mailing list and a history of all security advisories, as well as an RSS feed with the most recent security advisories. We strongly advise Drupal administrators to sign up for the list.

Drupal 7 includes the built-in Update Manager module, which informs you about important updates to your modules and themes.

Bug reports

Drupal 7.x is being maintained, so given enough bug fixes (not just bug reports), more maintenance releases will be made available, according to our monthly release cycle.


Drupal 7.20 is a security release only. For more details, see the 7.20 release notes.

A complete list of all bug fixes in the stable 7.x branch can be found in the git commit log.

Security vulnerabilities

Drupal 7.20 was released in response to the discovery of security vulnerabilities. Details can be found in the official security advisory:

To fix the security problems, please upgrade to Drupal 7.20.

Known issues

Due to the nature of the security fix, some sites will require extra testing and care when deploying this release of Drupal core, and several contributed modules require code changes in order to continue working correctly. See the release notes for more information.
