-----------------------
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
11
- major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
12
    * 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
23 24
- rewrote configuration file resolving:
    * Drupal tries to locate a configuration file that matches your domainname 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 committed
89 90 91
