I've had a couple of days with windows 10 on my laptop and there are a few things I like:

1. Virtual Desktops are great
2. They didn't break anything super important
3. They did a good job of hiding Internet Explorer.  I'm reasonably certain that people who aren't trying to launch it won't ever launch it.
4. I can hit the windows button and search my list of apps again.
5. And yea, there's a start button.

I don't think I'm really picky when it comes to leveraging my decades of windows experience.  Just don't surprise me.  Things like Virtual Desktops are a surprise but it's a nice surprise.  Things like taking my start button away is definitely a surprise. A walk out of the movie, through the book across the room, turn the computer off and send it back kind of surprise.  

Thanks for fixing that MS.

This is a wonderful podcast by +Brian Lewis and +Mike Potter, I especially like the part where you talked about how the Features module is changing in Drupal 8.

Key takeaways:
1. Features in Drupal 8 will be able to provide guidance on how configuration can be bundled up in exportable features.  The Assignment plugins that do this work can be overridden by the astute developer to allow a lead developer to control how features should be bundled together.

So if you want to asset a project-level rule like, all field bases should be always be exported together and never be included in a feature for a content type, it sounds like you could do that.

I bet +beth binkovitz was happy to hear that.
see her excellent article on strategies of working with features over the lifetime of a project here:
https://www.palantir.net/blog/git-workflow-2-features-boogaloo

The idea of namespacing features Mike talks about is interesting.   But it's mainly interesting because that kind of granular level of control is possible. I wonder what more will be possible with Features over Drupal 8's lifetime.

With smartcache almost a real thing, it's important to understand one the key technolgies that drive it: cache contexts.

Smartcache is smart because it knows a lot about the structures that Drupal 8 manages.  It knows about how content is interrelated, it knows about the cascade of influence on small change can ripple through the system.  So that when you do make a change, you don't have to generate a list of all possible pieces of content, no matter what kind of content it may be, in order devalidate them all in the cache and rebuild them. Instead, you access the contents' context and tags.

https://www.drupal.org/developing/api/8/cache/contexts
Cache contexts are analogous to HTTP's Vary header. Why? Cache contexts provide a declarative way to create context-dependent variations of something that needs to be cached. By making it declarative, code that creates caches becomes easier to read, and the same logic doesn't need to be repeated in every place where the same context variations are necessary. Examples:

As you can see from drupalreleasedate.com, we are very close to having single digit blockers for a drupal 8 release candidate.

https://drupalreleasedate.com/

We have 11 blockers at the time of writing this.  What's even more exciting is that four of the 11 issues are really placeholders for actions that need to be finalized and taken when the release candidate is ready to ship. Policy things like making sure our release candidate checklist is completed, making sure we have a working update path (specifically), making sure we have a good way to profile performance.

All of these issues could be ironed out if we had a series of face-to-face discussions.  It just so happens that the Drupal community has a pretty big event coming up that could facilitate having these face-to-face discussions: https://events.drupal.org/barcelona2015

So it appears I may lose my bet to +Larry Garfield and Drupal 8 might see a release candidate coming out of Drupalcon Barcelona.  After years of optimism that we could get it done "this year", I was guardedly pessimistic that we would finish D8 this year (was thinking February 2016).  I will be very happy to be wrong.

read it, interesting approach, but seems like you would wind up with a lot of templates for a site of moderate complexity.

Minor update to +PhpStorm hits the streets today

http://blog.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/2015/07/phpstorm-9-0-1-eap-141-2204/

Please let me know if you have any issues with your saved settings.  A coworker had some major issues when upgrading from phpstorm 8 to 9.  Did anyone else lose their custom templates they setup?
