373
------------------------
Dries's avatar
   
Dries committed
374
- major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
Dries's avatar
   
Dries committed
375
    * 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.
Dries's avatar
   
Dries committed
376
- rewrote submission/moderation queue and renamed it to queue.module.
Dries's avatar

385
    * supports unlimited amount of nested topics.  Topics can be nested to create a multi-level hierarchy.
Dries's avatar
   
Dries committed
386
- rewrote configuration file resolving:
Dries's avatar
   
Dries committed
387
    * 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
   
Dries committed
388
- added caching support which makes Drupal extremely scalable.
Dries's avatar
   
Dries committed

    * allows you to setup 'roles' (groups) and to bind a set of permissions to each group.

438
    * comment navigation should be less confusing now.
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
439
440
    * additional/alternative display and order methods have been added.

Dries's avatar
   
Dries committed
442
    * story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
443
    * 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 committed
444
- multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
Dries's avatar
   
Dries committed
445
    * you can setup multiple Drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.

Dries committed

Dries's avatar

- added translation / localization / internationalization support:
Dries's avatar
   
Dries committed
451
    * 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
452
453
454
- added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
