392
------------------------
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
393
- major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
394
    * 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
395
- rewrote submission/moderation queue and renamed it to queue.module.
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
396

397
- removed ban module and integrated it into account.module as "access control":

Dries committed
404
    * supports unlimited amount of nested topics.  Topics can be nested to create a multi-level hierarchy.
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
405
- rewrote configuration file resolving:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
406
    * 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
407
- added caching support which makes Drupal extremely scalable.
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed

456
- rewrote the comment/discussion code:
Dries's avatar

Dries's avatar

458 459
    * additional/alternative display and order methods have been added.

Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
460

Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
461
    * story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
462
    * 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's avatar
 
Dries committed
463
- multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
Dries's avatar

Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
466 467

- added "search infrastructure":

Dries's avatar
Dries committed
469
- added translation / localization / internationalization support:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
470
    * 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
471 472 473
- 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.
