drupal 3.00, 15/09/2001
-----------------------
- 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.
- removed FAQ and documentation module and merged them into a "book module".
- removed ban module and integrated it into account.module as "access control":
* access control is based on much more powerful regular expressions (regex) now rather than on MySQL pattern matching.
- rewrote watchdog and submission throttle:
* improved watchdog messages and added watchdog filter.
- rewrote headline code and renamed it to import.module and export.module:
* added various improvements, including a better parser, bundles and better control over individual feeds.
- rewrote section code and renamed it to meta.module:
* supports unlimeted amount of nested topics. Topics can be nested to create a multi-level hierarchy.
- 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.
- added caching support which makes Drupal extremely scalable.
- added access.module:
* allows you to setup 'roles' (groups) and to bind a set of permissions to each group.
- added blog.module.
- added poll.module.
- added system.module:
* moved most of the configuration options from hostname.conf to the new administration section.
* added support for custom "filters".
- added statistics.module
- added moderate.module:
* allows to assign users editorial/moderator rights to certain nodes or topics.
- added page.module:
* allows creation of static (and dynamic) pages through the administration interface.
- added help.module:
* groups all available module documentation on a single page.
- added forum.module:
* added an integrated forum.
- added cvs.module and cvs-to-sql.pl:
* allows to display and mail CVS log messages as daily digests.
- added book.module:
* allows collaborative handbook writing: primary used for drupal documentation.
- removed cron.module and integrated it into conf.module.
- removed module.module as it was no longer needed.
- various updates:
* added "auto-post new submissions" feature versus "moderate new submissions".
* introduced links/drupal tags: [[link]]
* added preview functionality when submitting new content (such as a story) from the administration pages.
* made the administration section only show those links a user has access to.
* made all modules use specific form_* functions to guarantee a rock-solid forms and more consistent layout.
* improved scheduler:
+ content can be scheduled to be 'posted', 'queued' and 'hidden'.
* improved account module:
+ added "access control" to allow/deny certain usernames/e-mail addresses/hostnames.
* improved locale module:
+ added new overview to easy the translation process.
* improved comment module:
+ made it possible to permanently delete comments.
* improved rating module
* improved story module:
+ added preview functionality for administrators.
+ made it possible to permanently delete stories.
* improved themes:
+ W3C validation on a best effort basis.
+ removed $theme->control() from themes.
+ added theme "goofy".
- collaboratively revised and expanded the drupal documentation.
drupal 2.00, 15/03/2001
-----------------------
- 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:
* you can setup multiple drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.
- 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:
* 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.
- 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
* improved headline module:
+ improved parser to support more "generic" RDF/RSS/XML backend.
* improved module module
* improved watchdog module
* improved database abstraction layer
* improved themes:
+ W3C validation on a best effort basis
+ added theme "example" (alas "Stone Age")
* added new scripts to directory "scripts"
* added directory "misc"
* added CREDITS file
