Drupal 7.0, xxxx-xx-xx (development version)
----------------------
5
6
7
- Database:
    * Fully rewritten database layer utilizing PHP 5's PDO abstraction layer.
    * Added query builders for INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MERGE, and SELECT queries.
8
    * Support for master/slave replication, transactions, multi-insert queries,
9
      delayed inserts, and other features.
10
11
- Security:
    * Protected cron.php -- cron will only run if the proper key is provided.
12
    * Implemented much stronger password hashes that are also compatible with the
13
      Portable PHP password hashing framework.
14
    * Implemented a pluggable password hashing API supporting alternative
15
      hashing and authentication schemes.
16
- Usability:
17
    * Improved installer requirements check.
18
    * Improved support for integration of WYSIWYG editors.
19
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for input format listings.
20
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for language listing.
21
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for poll options.
22
    * Provided descriptions and human-readable names for user permissions.
23
    * Removed comment controls for users.
24
25
    * Removed display order settings for comment module. Comment display
      order can now be customised using the Views module.
26
27
28
29
    * Added additional features to the default install profile, and implemented
      a "slimmed down" install profile designed for developers.
    * Image toolkits are now provided by modules (rather than requiring a manual
      file copy to the includes directory).
30
    * Added an edit tab to taxonomy term pages.
31
    * Redesigned password strength validator.
32
33
- News aggregator:
    * Added OPML import functionality for RSS feeds.
34
    * Optionally, RSS feeds may be configured to not automatically generate feed blocks.
35
- Search:
36
    * Added support for language-aware searches.
37
38
- Testing:
    * Added test framework and tests.
39
- Removed ping module:
40
41
42
    * Contributed modules with similar functionality are available.
- Refactored the "access rules" component of user module:
    * The user module now provides a simple interface for blocking single
43
44
      IP addresses. The previous functionality in the user module for restricting
      certain e-mail addresses and usernames is now available as a contributed module.
45
46
      Further, IP address range blocking is no longer supported and should be
      implemented at the operating system level.
47
- Removed throttle module:
48
49
    * Alternative methods for improving performance are available in other core and
      contributed modules.
50
- Added code registry:
51
52
53
    * Using the registry, modules declare their includable files via their .info file,
      allowing Drupal to lazy-load code as needed, resulting in significant performance
      and memory improvements.
54
55
- Theme system:
    * Converted the 'bluemarine' theme to a tableless layout.
56
57
58
59
60
61
62
63
64
65
- File handling:
    * Files are now first class Drupal objects with file_load(), file_save(),
      and file_validate() functions and corresponding hooks.
    * The file_move(), file_copy() and file_delete() functions now operate on
      file objects and invoke file hooks so that modules are notified and can
      respond to changes.
    * For the occasions when only basic file manipulation are needed--such as
      uploading a site logo--that don't require the overhead of databases and
      hooks, the current unmanaged copy, move and delete operations have been
      preserved but renamed to file_unmanaged_*().
66
67
- Added aliased multi-site support:
    * Added support for mapping domain names to sites directories.

     messages to various destinations.

     levels defined in RFC 3164.

119
120
121
    * Added .info files to themes and made it easier to specify regions and

  contributed module (http://drupal.org/project/site_network).
166

- Major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
    * 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.
- Rewrote submission/moderation queue and renamed it to queue.module.
- Removed FAQ and documentation module and merged them into a "book module".
- Removed ban module and integrated it into account.module as "access control":
    * Access control is based on much more powerful regular expressions (regex) now rather than on MySQL pattern matching.
- Rewrote watchdog and submission throttle:
    * Improved watchdog messages and added watchdog filter.
- Rewrote headline code and renamed it to import.module and export.module:
    * Added various improvements, including a better parser, bundles and better control over individual feeds.
- Rewrote section code and renamed it to meta.module:
    * Supports unlimited amount of nested topics. Topics can be nested to create a multi-level hierarchy.
- Rewrote configuration file resolving:
800
    * 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.

- Added caching support which makes Drupal extremely scalable.
- Added access.module:
803
    * Allows you to set up 'roles' (groups) and to bind a set of permissions to each group.

- Rewrote the comment/discussion code:
    * 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.
- Added sections and section manager:
    * Story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
    * 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.
- Multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
858
    * You can set up multiple Drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.

- Added "user ratings" similar to SlashCode's Karma or Scoop's Mojo:
    * All rating logic is packed into a module to ease experimenting with different rating heuristics/algorithms.
- Added "search infrastructure":
    * Improved search page and integrated search functionality in the administration pages.
- Added translation / localization / internationalization support:
864
    * 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 set up a multi-lingual website or to overwrite the default English text in English.
