UT Drupal Kit 3.0.0-beta.4 release notes
Release date - March 10, 2020
This is a beta release for the next major version of the UT Drupal Kit. Betas are good testing targets for developers and site builders who are comfortable reporting (and where possible, fixing) their own bugs. Beta releases are not recommended for non-technical users, nor for production websites.
March 2020 brings the next beta release of the UT Drupal Kit itself as well as newly available integrations: the Profile add-on, and Enterprise Authentication for Pantheon-hosted sites.
UT Drupal Kit 3.0.0-beta.4 largely consists of bugfixes and minor display enhancements related to consistency.
It also includes an update from Drupal 8.8.1 to 8.8.3.
Documentation for updating an existing UT Drupal Kit 3 site is available at Updating a site.

The March 2020 release of the UT Drupal Kit introduces its first add-on, the Profile (current release version: 1.0.0-alpha.1). The Profile is the successor to version 2’s Team Member add-on, rebranded to fit broader use cases. This release includes a fully-themed, templated content type, but does not include the ability to create listings of profiles. Full documentation: the Profile add-on.
Note that while the Kit itself is in beta status, the Profile add-on is still in alpha: ITS may still make backwards-compatibility breaking changes. Developers are welcome and encouraged to test the alpha release and provide feedback, but are advised not to use it for production content just yet.
Sites hosted on Pantheon can now leverage the university’s Enterprise Authentication service for EID-based sign-on. ITS has developed a Composer plugin that facilitates the scaffolding of code & configuration related to this functionality. Full documentation: Integrating Enterprise Authentication.
