  • DKAN’s initial v1.0 release was in 2014 (this code is still available on the 7.x-1.x branch, although no longer supported).
  • In the fall of 2017, CivicActions took over sponsorship and maintenance of DKAN.
  • In May 2020 CivicActions released a completely rewritten version of DKAN to support Drupal 8, then 9 and 10. This new version (v2) was a complete ground up rebuild of the platform, integrating architectural insight from DKAN v1 and many new capabilities.
