VANCOUVER, BC (March 26, 2015) – Appnovation today announced that it will commit $30,000 to support the D8 Accelerate project efforts to help move Drupal 8 from the initial beta to a full release. This directly relates to the Drupal Association's mission: uniting a global open source community to build and promote Drupal.

D8 Accelerate is a pilot program from the Drupal Association to put $250,000 of community funds toward accelerating the release of Drupal 8; due to the strategic impact this work has on the entire Drupal ecosystem. Drupal 8 is the latest release on the Drupal journey, that is substantially more powerful than previous versions and provides new ways to tailor and deploy content that looks great on any device.

“We’re excited to support the latest and greatest Drupal release to benefit the whole open source community,” said Arnold Leung, CEO of Appnovation. “We also want to accelerate the development of this release and join the more than 2200 passionate people who have contributed to Drupal 8’s success so far.”

Since Appnovation’s founding in 2007, Drupal remains a cornerstone of the company’s development, design and consulting efforts today. Appnovation is proud to continue to give back and collaborate with the communities that make open source technologies so successful and truly innovative.

The fundraiser for D8 Accelerate has already raised over $130,000. To learn more about the Drupal Association and support the D8 Accelerate project, please visit
