I admit it. When looking at the calendar my eyes have been focused on November 19, 2015. This is the date that Drupal 8, under development since 2011, is expected to be released.

Within the past couple days, I've received emails and phone calls from TERMINALFOUR's marketing best encouraging me to cover the company's latest news. The announcement concerns new software from TERMINALFOUR, which the company believes will help universities drive students to register to attend through better online engagement. The company already works with leading universities across the United States including the University of Florida, Texas Woman’s University and Central Wyoming College.
I've included TERMINALFOUR's announcement below. TERMINALFOUR has incorporated a ‘Form Builder’ and automated migration tool into v8.1 to help increase engagement.

That's an impressive number as anyone that has ever worked on a migration project well knows. I've worked on some projects where the automation was "zero" due to the joys of an in-house customized CMS. It's one of the reasons I recommend CMSs like TERMINALFOUR instead of letting your IT shop build their own CMS.
