Maintenance and security release of the Drupal 7 series.
This release fixes security vulnerabilities. Sites are urged to upgrade immediately after reading the notes below and the security advisories:
Drupal core - Moderately critical - Third-party library - SA-CORE-2020-002
Drupal core - Moderately Critical - Open Redirect Vulnerability - SA-CORE-2020-003
No other fixes are included.
Important update information
This release provides a backwards compatibility layer to minimize disruptions in this security release. However, some sites may experience disruptions in jQuery code for certain edge cases. See the security advisory for more information.
Visiting update.php is required for this update in order to ensure a site cache clear. (There are no changes to database schemata.)
No changes have been made to the .htaccess, web.config, robots.txt, or default settings.php files in this release, so upgrading custom versions of those files is not necessary if your site is already on the previous release.
