Issue 356 - September, 13th 2018
"I firmly believe this is the most significant Drupal 8 release to date. It is significant because we made a lot of progress on all twelve of Drupal 8 core's strategic initiatives. As a result, Drupal 8.6 delivers a large number of improvements for content authors, evaluators, site builders and developers."
..."includes two new easy ways to install Drupal, a cooking magazine demo, oEmbed media support, stable upgrades for monolingual Drupal sites, a new media library and workspaces experimental modules, significant layout improvements, various REST fixes and testing improvements."
The big highlight here is the announced migration of the Drupal.org developer tools to GitLab.

From Hestenet (https://www.drupal.org/u/hestenet), "I am privileged and humbled to have been asked to serve as interim Executive Director. I take on this new responsibility with great care - care that is at the core of who I am and how much I hope that I have demonstrated to you over the years as an active member of our community and staff. I also continue to have tremendous confidence that both Drupal itself and the Association are poised to do great things."
Long time community member Paul Johnson provides great photos and summary of the recent DA board meetings at Drupal Europe.
"This release fixes an upgrade path bug in Drupal 8.6.0 which was reported after the release. You should upgrade directly from Drupal 8.5.x (via restoring a backup if necessary) to Drupal 8.6.1 if you have experienced this issue."
