- major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
Dries's avatar

Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
511
- rewrote configuration file resolving:
512
    * 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's avatar

Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
577
- added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
