Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
438
- major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
439
    * 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
450
- rewrote configuration file resolving:
451
    * 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
507

Dries's avatar

- added translation / localization / internationalization support:
Dries's avatar

    * 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
516
- added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
