Composer 2

We have added support and security coverage for Composer 2.

Breaking changes

We've done some necessary housework and tidied up WYSIWYG templates behind the scenes.

To finish tidying up, you'll need to add the following to the repositories section of your composer.json

   "ckeditor-plugin/templates": {
      "type": "package",
      "package": {
          "name": "ckeditor-plugin/templates",
          "version": "4.14.0",
          "type": "drupal-library",
          "dist": {
              "url": "",
              "type": "zip"

You will also need to add the following to the require section of your composer.json

"ckeditor-plugin/templates": "4.14.0"


We have removed the following dependencies from Sector:

If you need these, they can be added on a per-site basis using Composer.

We have also removed zaporylie/composer-drupal-optimizations - this is no longer needed with Composer 2. However, if you are using Composer 1, you should add this back in.

What now?
