Platform Improvements

Duplicate Pantheon Sites with Terminus Site Clone

The new Terminus Site Clone plugin makes it easier than ever to duplicate sites on Pantheon. For details, see Migrate Sites to Pantheon FAQs.

PHP 7.2 MS SQL Support

The platform-wide build of PHP 7.2 now supports connecting to an external Microsoft SQL server via sqlsrv functions. Your CMS should use Pantheon's default database, but this unlocks use cases that require connecting to an external MS SQL server.

Upgrade to PHP 7.1 or 7.2 before December

PHP 5.5 and 5.3 have reached end-of-life (EOL), and PHP 5.6 and 7.0 will reach EOL in December 2018 so upgrade to PHP 7.1 or 7.2 as soon as possible.

PHP Updates

PHP has been upgraded to 5.6.36, 7.0.30, 7.1.17 and 7.2.5 platform-wide.

WordPress Core Upgrade

WordPress 4.9.6 has been pushed to all site dashboards.
