The week we launched a new website for the Middlebury Institute. This is the first site we’ve launched on Drupal 8 and features many improvements over our Drupal 7 system including better caching, performance, responsive design, and an easier to use editing environment that lets you build pages using discrete components. We look forward to rolling this out to other other Drupal-based sites over the next couple years as part of the redesign project.

Fixes and Tweaks
- Following the launch of the new Institute website we have added a homepage feature to spotlight programs with quotes from alums. We also allowed profiles and events to be editable by all site editors. Profiles can now include Vimeo and Instagram links.
- Removed a module from the Drupal 7 archive copy of the Institute site that translated all relative URLs to absolute URLs, which was causing problems now that the hostname is changed.
- Creating a new automatically generated course catalog.
- Building out the configuration of our CAS servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal, WordPress, MediaWiki, GO, Omeka, and the Course Catalog services.
- Upgrading the Drupal sites for the Davis programs, Dining Menus, and Museum of Art to Drupal 8.
