The first commercially supported version of the open source content management system Drupal, codenamed Carbon, is planned for release in the second half of 2008 by Acquia, a startup firm founded by Drupal's creator Dries Buyaert.

The product, which includes paid-for support and maintenance services, will be based on the recently released Drupal 6.0. The source code will, however, still be licensed under GPLv2. A new service called Spokes will inform Carbon users about updates and security patches.
