Last updated October 8, 2013.
We are hard at work on the next version of Drupal. Some of the great things planned include better HTML5 and mobile support, improved multilingual features, and setting up Drupal 8 on a modern web development framework. But we can't do any of it without your help!
Core development structure
Drupal 8 is the first development cycle introducing official Core initiatives. These are areas with named leads to improve Drupal core in certain areas. However, this does not limit core development to these main areas, there are many community initiatives as well.

- Post feature-freeze update posted here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/286108
- Global sprint weekend was a big success for WSCCI. We got a lot done during the sprints and we are now able to start the conversion process for page callbacks. We can start crowdsourcing now for this conversion issues as they are easier to pick up than many of the previous WSCCI issue that required a real expertise. Conversion issues are tagged "WSCCI Conversion", here's a list of them: http://drupal.org/project/issues/search/drupal?issue_tags=WSCCI-conversi...

- : Work on this is happening in #1845402, this has turned into a meta-issue. A spin-off for action links has been created:
- : Need someone to pick this up! This is priority!
- : Needs work. Katbailey is working on this.
- : Cosmicdreams has broken this patch into smaller parts and is currently working on part 1. He and Dawehner have made some progress and posted a new patch.
- : Needs work. Mostly comes down to simple test, needs some unraveling (at least as much as possible)
- : Latest patch failed testing, needs work. It’s priority as it is blocking .
- : Blocked on #1668866.
- : Patch is failing testing and needs work.
- : New patch posted, needs review.

Scrum notes from Meeting #45 - 7/17/2013
Do a survey of various style guides to see what others have named these components and build a list of possible components in a Google drive spreadsheet at: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AvR7gnIrX0ckdDgzNDI0blZVSnF...
As components are identified, create an issue for each component and then try to come to consensus based on the survey data. Add that new issue to the issue summary of #1995272: [Meta] Refactor module CSS files to use component-style selectors
Jesse has been driving a lot of front end work in improving the Accessibility of Drupal.
She will be speaking at Drupal Gov Days next week about accessibility
