It was nice to get a mention for the work I've been helping with for Migrate in Drupal 8 core.
The Migrate in Core team had their first core patch land! This provides the underlying architecture for migrations, as well as a variable-to-CMI migration as a proof of concept. Drupal 8 will provide migrations from Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 both. If you're curious to see how it works, read the change notice for a quick overview, and the excellent documentation for more details. BIG congrats to mikeryan, chx, marvil07, bdone, jessehs, mpgeek, BTMash, fastangel, mongolito404, Moshe Weitzman, eliza411, YesCT, dawehner, and cosmicdreams!
