Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
503
- major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
504
    * 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
515
- rewrote configuration file resolving:
516
    * 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's avatar

Dries's avatar
 
Dries committed
581
- added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
