Dries committed
3
- major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
4
    * 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.

drupal 2.00, 15/03/2001
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
46 47
-----------------------
- rewrote the comment/discussion code:
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
48 49 50
    * comment navigation should be less confusing now
    * additional/alternative display and order methods have been added.
    * modules can be extended with a "comment system": modules can embed the existing comment system without having to write their own, duplicate comment system.
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
51
- added sections and section manager:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
52
    * story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
53
    * 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 committed
54
- multiple vhosts + multiple directories:

56
- added "user ratings" similar to SlashCode's Karma or Scoop's Mojo:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
57 58
    * all rating logic is packed into a module to ease experimenting with different rating heuristics/algorithms.
- added "search infrastructure":
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
59
    * improved search page and integrated search functionality in the administration pages.
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
60
- added translation / localization / internationalization support:
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
61
    * 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
62 63 64
- added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
    * users can be granted access to specific administration sections.  Example: a FAQ maintainer can be given access to maintain the FAQ and translators can be given access to the translation pages.
- added FAQ module
