Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
452
- major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
453
    * everything is based on nodes: nodes are a conceptual "black box" to couple and manage different types of content and that promotes reusing existing code, thus reducing the complexity and size of Drupal as well as improving long-term stability.

    * supports unlimited amount of nested topics. Topics can be nested to create a multi-level hierarchy.
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
464
- rewrote configuration file resolving:
465
    * Drupal tries to locate a configuration file that matches your domain name or uses conf.php if the former failed. Note also that the configuration files got renamed from .conf to .php for security's sake on mal-configured Drupal sites.
Dries's avatar

466
- added caching support which makes Drupal extremely scalable.

Dries's avatar

Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed

Dries's avatar
Dries committed
521
    * story sections make the open submission more adaptive in that you can set individual post, dump and expiration thresholds for each section according to the story type and urgency level: stories in certain sections do not "expire" and might stay interesting and active as time passes by, whereas news-related stories are only considered "hot" over a short period of time.
Dries's avatar

Dries's avatar
Dries committed
528
- added translation / localization / internationalization support:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
529
    * because many people would love to see their website showing a lot less of English, and far more of their own language, Drupal provides a framework to setup a multi-lingual website or to overwrite the default English text in English.
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
530
- added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
531
