Software update: Drupal 8.6.1

Version 8.6 of Drupal has been released. Drupal is a php-written, user-friendly and powerful content management platform with which, for example, websites can be created. It is simple enough for a novice user, but powerful enough to build a more complex website. The program includes a content management platform and a development framework. Version 8.6 includes oEmbed, a new way to add media, and a demo that shows what Drupal is capable of. Version 8.6.1 should correct a critical error in the updater, which could lead to data loss.
