UPDATE (Sept. 20, 2017): Drupal Commerce 2 has launched! Checkout our release day blog post and try a demo!
Hot off the press! Commerce Guys have announced the official launch date of Drupal Commerce 2.0, and it’s next week! That’s right, the first fully supported, stable release is upon us. When you ask? September 20, 2017. Put it in your calendar, grab a few wobbly pops, and get ready to celebrate!
A huge community effort
The development of Drupal Commerce 2 has been a major undertaking. The Commerce Guys and a huge number of individuals and agencies helped bring it to where it is today. Wow! That is an incredible community effort and really goes to show you just how strong the Drupal community is when focused together on a common goal.
To toot our horn a little bit, Acro has our developer hands in the pot too, and a lot of hands at that. As the Official North American Service Provider for Commerce Guys and North America’s #1 Drupal Commerce agency, our mission involves committing a ton of hours to help the development of Drupal Commerce. It’s our bread and butter, and we’re very excited to be at this point! Toot toot!
Celebrate with us!
We will definitely be geeking on the 20th with childish excitement! This has been a long time coming and it’s good to step back and enjoy the progress. If you’re in town, stop by! We’d love to show you around.

The Commerce Guys will be at DrupalCon Vienna later this month to show off the official release. So, if you’re in that area, or planning to attend, go see them! It’s taking place September 26-29, 2017.
A couple of our team will be there too. Our CTO, Shawn McCabe (smccabe) will be there. Feel free to contact us if you’d like to schedule in a meeting with him. We also have Vicki Spagnolo (quietone) and Rakesh James (rakesh.gectcr) there giving talks. Vicki and Rakesh will both be presenting on the topic of “Migrate Everything into Drupal 8,” which is now very relevant since both Drupal 8 and Commerce 2 will be officially released. Rakesh will also be giving a solo session on “Prophecise your phpunit tests”. Again, if you’re there, check it out!
