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
48 49
-----------------------
- rewrote the comment/discussion code:
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
50 51 52
    * comment navigation should be less confusing now
    * additional/alternative display and order methods have been added.

Dries's avatar

53

Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
54
    * story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
55
    * 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
56

    * improved search page and integrated search functionality in the administration pages.
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
62
- added translation / localization / internationalization support:
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
63
    * 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
64 65 66
- 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.
