Drupal 7.0, 2011-01-05
135
----------------------
136
- Database:
137
    * Fully rewritten database layer using PHP 5's PDO abstraction layer.
138
    * Drupal now requires MySQL >= 5.0.15 or PostgreSQL >= 8.3.
139
    * Added query builders for INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MERGE, and SELECT queries.
140 141
    * Support for primary/replica replication, transactions, multi-insert
      queries, and other features.
142
    * Added support for the SQLite database engine.
143 144
    * Default to InnoDB engine, rather than MyISAM, on MySQL when available.
      This offers increased scalability and data integrity.
145 146
- Security:
    * Protected cron.php -- cron will only run if the proper key is provided.
147 148 149 150 151
    * Implemented a pluggable password system and much stronger password hashes
      that are compatible with the Portable PHP password hashing framework.
    * Rate limited login attempts to prevent brute-force password guessing, and
      improved the flood control API to allow variable time windows and
      identifiers for limiting user access to resources.
152 153
    * Transformed the "Update status" module into the "Update manager" which
      can securely install or update modules and themes via a web interface.
154
- Usability:
155 156 157
    * Added contextual links (a.k.a. local tasks) to page elements, such as
      blocks, nodes, or comments, which allows to perform the most common tasks
      with a single click only.
158
    * Improved installer requirements check.
159
    * Improved support for integration of WYSIWYG editors.
160
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for input format listings.

163
    * Provided descriptions and human-readable names for user permissions.
164
    * Removed comment controls for users.
165
    * Removed display order settings for comment module. Comment display
166
      order can now be customized using the Views module.
167 168
    * Removed the 'related terms' feature from taxonomy module since this can
      now be achieved with Field API.
169 170
    * Added additional features to the default installation profile, and
      implemented a "slimmed down" profile designed for developers.
171 172
    * Added a built-in, automated cron run feature, which is triggered by site
      visitors.
173
    * Added an administrator role which is assigned all permissions for
174
      installed modules automatically.
175 176
    * Image toolkits are now provided by modules (rather than requiring a
      manual file copy to the includes directory).
177
    * Added an edit tab to taxonomy term pages.
178
    * Redesigned password strength validator.
179
    * Redesigned the add content type screen.
180
    * Highlight duplicate URL aliases.
181
    * Renamed "input formats" to "text formats".
182
    * Moved text format permissions to the main permissions page.
183

      automatic summaries and increases usability.
186
    * Replaced fieldsets on node edit and add pages with vertical tabs.
187 188 189
- Performance:
    * Improved performance on uncached page views by loading multiple core
      objects in a single database query.
190 191
    * Improved performance for logged-in users by reducing queries for path
      alias lookups.
192
    * Improved support for HTTP proxies (including reverse proxies), allowing
193
      anonymous page views to be served entirely from the proxy.
194 195
- Documentation:
    * Hook API documentation now included in Drupal core.
196 197
- News aggregator:
    * Added OPML import functionality for RSS feeds.
198
    * Optionally, RSS feeds may be configured to not automatically generate feed blocks.
199
- Search:
200
    * Added support for language-aware searches.
201
- Aggregator:
Dries's avatar
Dries committed
202
    * Introduced architecture that allows pluggable parsers and processors for
203
      syndicating RSS and Atom feeds.
204
    * Added options to suspend updating specific feeds and never discard feeds
205
      items.
206 207
- Testing:
    * Added test framework and tests.
208 209 210 211 212 213
- Improved time zone support:
    * Drupal now uses PHP's time zone database when rendering dates in local
      time. Site-wide and user-configured time zone offsets have been converted
      to time zone names, e.g. Africa/Abidjan.
    * In some cases the upgrade and install scripts do not choose the preferred
      site default time zone. The automatically-selected time zone can be
214
      corrected at admin/config/regional/settings.
215 216 217
    * If your site is being upgraded from Drupal 6 and you do not have the
      contributed date or event modules installed, user time zone settings will
      fallback to the system time zone and will have to be reconfigured by each user.
218 219
    * User-configured time zones now serve as the default time zone for PHP
      date/time functions.
220
- Filter system:
221
    * Revamped the filter API and text format storage.
222
    * Added support for default text formats to be assigned on a per-role basis.
223
    * Refactored the HTML corrector to take advantage of PHP 5 features.
224 225 226 227 228
- User system:
    * Added clean API functions for creating, loading, updating, and deleting
      user roles and permissions.
    * Refactored the "access rules" component of user module: The user module
      now provides a simple interface for blocking single IP addresses. The
229
      previous functionality in the user module for restricting certain email
230 231 232 233 234
      addresses and usernames is now available as a contributed module. Further,
      IP address range blocking is no longer supported and should be implemented
      at the operating system level.
    * Removed per-user themes: Contributed modules with similar functionality
      are available.
235 236
- OpenID:
    * Added support for Gmail and Google Apps for Domain identifiers. Users can
237
      now login with their user@example.com identifier when example.com is powered
238 239
      by Google.
    * Made the OpenID module more pluggable.
240
- Added code registry:
241
    * Using the registry, modules declare their includable files via their .info file,
242
      allowing Drupal to lazy-load classes and interfaces as needed.
243
- Theme system:
244
    * Removed the Bluemarine, Chameleon and Pushbutton themes. These themes live
245 246 247
      on as contributed themes (https://www.drupal.org/project/bluemarine,
      https://www.drupal.org/project/chameleon and
      https://www.drupal.org/project/pushbutton).
248
    * Added Stark theme to make analyzing Drupal's default HTML and CSS easier.
249
    * Added Seven as the default administration theme.
250 251 252 253 254 255
    * Variable preprocessing of theme hooks prior to template rendering now goes
      through two phases: a 'preprocess' phase and a new 'process' phase. See
      http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
    * Theme hooks implemented as functions (rather than as templates) can now
      also have preprocess (and process) functions. See
      http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
256
    * Added Bartik as the default theme.
257 258 259 260 261 262 263 264 265 266
- File handling:
    * Files are now first class Drupal objects with file_load(), file_save(),
      and file_validate() functions and corresponding hooks.
    * The file_move(), file_copy() and file_delete() functions now operate on
      file objects and invoke file hooks so that modules are notified and can
      respond to changes.
    * For the occasions when only basic file manipulation are needed--such as
      uploading a site logo--that don't require the overhead of databases and
      hooks, the current unmanaged copy, move and delete operations have been
      preserved but renamed to file_unmanaged_*().
267
    * Rewrote file handling to use PHP stream wrappers to enable support for
268 269
      both public and private files and to support pluggable storage mechanisms
      and access to remote resources (e.g. S3 storage or Flickr photos).
270 271 272
    * The mime_extension_mapping variable has been removed. Modules that need to
      alter the default MIME type extension mappings should implement
      hook_file_mimetype_mapping_alter().
273 274
    * Added the hook_file_url_alter() hook, which makes it possible to serve
      files from a CDN.
275
    * Added a field specifically for uploading files, previously provided by
276
      the contributed module FileField.
277 278 279 280 281
- Image handling:
    * Improved image handling, including better support for add-on image
      libraries.
    * Added API and interface for creating advanced image thumbnails.
    * Inclusion of additional effects such as rotate and desaturate.
282
    * Added a field specifically for uploading images, previously provided by
283
      the contributed module ImageField.
284 285
- Added aliased multi-site support:
    * Added support for mapping domain names to sites directories.
286 287 288
- Added RDF support:
    * Modules can declare RDF namespaces which are serialized in the <html> tag
      for RDFa support.
289 290 291
    * Modules can specify how their data structure maps to RDF.
    * Added support for RDFa export of nodes, comments, terms, users, etc. and
      their fields.
292 293 294 295 296 297
- Search engine optimization and web linking:
    * Added a rel="canonical" link on node and comment pages to prevent
      duplicate content indexing by search engines.
    * Added a default rel="shortlink" link on node and comment pages that
      advertises a short link as an alternative URL to third-party services.
    * Meta information is now alterable by all modules before rendering.
298
- Field API:
299 300
    * Custom data fields may be attached to nodes, users, comments and taxonomy
      terms.
301 302
    * Node bodies and teasers are now Field API fields instead of
      being a hard-coded property of node objects.
303 304
    * In addition, any other object type may register with Field API
      and allow custom data fields to be attached to itself.
305
    * Provides most of the features of the former Content Construction
306
      Kit (CCK) module.
307 308
    * Taxonomy terms are now Field API fields that can be added to any fieldable
      object.
309 310 311
- Installer:
    * Refactored the installer into an API that allows Drupal to be installed
      via a command line script.
312
- Page organization
313
    * Made the help text area a full featured region with blocks.
314
    * Site mission is replaced with the highlighted content block region and
315
      separate RSS feed description settings.
316
    * The footer message setting was removed in favor of custom blocks.
317 318
    * Made the main page content a block which can be moved and ordered
      with other blocks in the same region.
319
    * Blocks can now return structured arrays for later rendering just
320
      like page callbacks.
321 322
- Translation system
    * The translation system now supports message context (msgctxt).
323
    * Added support for translatable fields to Field API.
324
- JavaScript changes
325
    * Upgraded the core JavaScript library to jQuery version 1.4.4.
326
    * Upgraded the jQuery Forms library to 2.52.
327
    * Added jQuery UI 1.8.7, which allows improvements to Drupal's user
328
      experience.
329
- Better module version support
330
    * Modules now can specify which version of another module they depend on.
331 332 333 334 335 336
- Removed modules from core
    * The following modules have been removed from core, because contributed
      modules with similar functionality are available:
      * Blog API module
      * Ping module
      * Throttle module
337 338 339 340 341 342 343
- Improved node access control system.
    * All modules may now influence the access to a node at runtime, not just
      the module that defined a node.
    * Users may now be allowed to bypass node access restrictions without giving
      them complete access to the site.
    * Access control affects both published and unpublished nodes.
    * Numerous other improvements to the node access system.
344 345 346 347
- Actions system
    * Simplified definitions of actions and triggers.
    * Removed dependency on the combination of hooks and operations. Triggers
      now directly map to module hooks.
348 349 350 351 352
- Task handling
    * Added a queue API to process many or long-running tasks.
    * Added queue API support to cron API.
    * Added a locking framework to coordinate long-running operations across
      requests.
353 354

     messages to various destinations.
   * Expands the severity levels from 3 (Error, Warning, Notice) to the 8
     levels defined in RFC 3164.
   * The watchdog module is now called dblog, and is optional, but enabled by
363
     default in the default installation profile.
364 365
   * Extended the database log module so log messages can be filtered.
   * Added syslog module: useful for monitoring large Drupal installations.
366

367
  deleted.
368

- Major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
    * 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.
- Rewrote submission/moderation queue and renamed it to queue.module.

1088 1089
- Added caching support which makes Drupal extremely scalable.
- Added access.module:
1090
    * Allows you to set up 'roles' (groups) and to bind a set of permissions to each group.

1120

1136
------------------------
1137 1138 1139 1140 1141 1142 1143 1144
- Rewrote the comment/discussion code:
    * Comment navigation should be less confusing now.
    * Additional/alternative display and order methods have been added.
    * Modules can be extended with a "comment system": modules can embed the existing comment system without having to write their own, duplicate comment system.
- Added sections and section manager:
    * Story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
    * 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.
- Multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
1145
    * You can set up multiple Drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.
1146 1147 1148 1149 1150
- Added "user ratings" similar to SlashCode's Karma or Scoop's Mojo:
    * All rating logic is packed into a module to ease experimenting with different rating heuristics/algorithms.
- Added "search infrastructure":
    * Improved search page and integrated search functionality in the administration pages.
- Added translation / localization / internationalization support:
1151
    * 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 set up a multi-lingual website or to overwrite the default English text in English.

- 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.
- Added FAQ module
- Changed the "open submission queue" into a (optional) module.
- Various updates:
    * Improved account module:
        + User accounts can be deleted.
        + Added fine-grained permission support.
    * Improved block module
    * Improved diary module:
        + Diary entries can be deleted
