Instructions on Drupal.org for installing Drupal with composer provides the following example:

composer create-project drupal/drupal my_site_name 8.3.*@dev --no-dev

This provides me with the latest DEV version of Drupal. How do I get the lasted stable release?

composer create-project drupal-composer/drupal-project:8.x-dev \
  --stability dev \

    Edited for readability - note that \ continues the command in cli.

  • It is my understanding that there are two different templates for a Drupal 8 site - 1- drupal/drupal (docroot is repo root) 2- drupal-composer/drupal-project (docroot is subdir) I'm trying to install the latest version of Drupal using option #1 and am a little confused about the correct syntax for that.
