    * Support for primary/replica replication, transactions, multi-insert
      queries, and other features.
    * Added support for the SQLite database engine.
    * Default to InnoDB engine, rather than MyISAM, on MySQL when available.
      This offers increased scalability and data integrity.
- Security:
    * Protected cron.php -- cron will only run if the proper key is provided.
    * 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.
    * Transformed the "Update status" module into the "Update manager" which
      can securely install or update modules and themes via a web interface.
- Usability:
    * 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.
    * Improved installer requirements check.
    * Improved support for integration of WYSIWYG editors.
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for input format listings.
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for language listing.
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for poll options.
    * Provided descriptions and human-readable names for user permissions.
    * Removed comment controls for users.
    * Removed display order settings for comment module. Comment display
      order can now be customized using the Views module.
    * Removed the 'related terms' feature from taxonomy module since this can
      now be achieved with Field API.
    * Added additional features to the default installation profile, and
      implemented a "slimmed down" profile designed for developers.
    * Added a built-in, automated cron run feature, which is triggered by site
      visitors.
    * Added an administrator role which is assigned all permissions for
      installed modules automatically.
    * Image toolkits are now provided by modules (rather than requiring a
      manual file copy to the includes directory).
    * Added an edit tab to taxonomy term pages.
    * Redesigned password strength validator.
    * Redesigned the add content type screen.
    * Highlight duplicate URL aliases.
    * Renamed "input formats" to "text formats".
    * Moved text format permissions to the main permissions page.
    * Added configurable ability for users to cancel their own accounts.
    * Added "vertical tabs", a reusable interface component that features
      automatic summaries and increases usability.
    * Replaced fieldsets on node edit and add pages with vertical tabs.
- Performance:
    * Improved performance on uncached page views by loading multiple core
      objects in a single database query.
    * Improved performance for logged-in users by reducing queries for path
      alias lookups.
    * Improved support for HTTP proxies (including reverse proxies), allowing
      anonymous page views to be served entirely from the proxy.
- Documentation:
    * Hook API documentation now included in Drupal core.
- News aggregator:
    * Added OPML import functionality for RSS feeds.
    * Optionally, RSS feeds may be configured to not automatically generate feed blocks.
- Search:
    * Added support for language-aware searches.
- Aggregator:
    * Introduced architecture that allows pluggable parsers and processors for
      syndicating RSS and Atom feeds.
    * Added options to suspend updating specific feeds and never discard feeds
      items.
- Testing:
    * Added test framework and tests.
- 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; for example, 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
      corrected at admin/config/regional/settings.
    * 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.
    * User-configured time zones now serve as the default time zone for PHP
      date/time functions.
- Filter system:
    * Revamped the filter API and text format storage.
    * Added support for default text formats to be assigned on a per-role basis.
    * Refactored the HTML corrector to take advantage of PHP 5 features.
- 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
      previous functionality in the user module for restricting certain email
      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.
- OpenID:
    * Added support for Gmail and Google Apps for Domain identifiers. Users can
      now log in with their user@example.com identifier when example.com is
      powered by Google.
    * Made the OpenID module more pluggable.
- Added code registry:
    * Using the registry, modules declare their includable files via their .info file,
      allowing Drupal to lazy-load classes and interfaces as needed.
- Theme system:
    * Removed the Bluemarine, Chameleon and Pushbutton themes. These themes live
      on as contributed themes (https://www.drupal.org/project/bluemarine,
      https://www.drupal.org/project/chameleon and
      https://www.drupal.org/project/pushbutton).
    * Added Stark theme to make analyzing Drupal's default HTML and CSS easier.
    * Added Seven as the default administration theme.
    * 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.
    * Added Bartik as the default theme.
- 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_*().
    * Rewrote file handling to use PHP stream wrappers to enable support for
      both public and private files and to support pluggable storage mechanisms
      and access to remote resources (for example, S3 storage or Flickr photos).
    * 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().
    * Added the hook_file_url_alter() hook, which makes it possible to serve
      files from a CDN.
    * Added a field specifically for uploading files, previously provided by
      the contributed module FileField.
- Image handling:
    * Improved image handling, including better support for add-on image
      libraries.
    * Added API and interface for creating advanced image thumbnails.

- Added RDF support:
    * Modules can declare RDF namespaces which are serialized in the <html> tag
      for RDFa support.
    * Modules can specify how their data structure maps to RDF.
    * Added support for RDFa export of nodes, comments, terms, users, etc. and
      their fields.
- 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.
- Field API:
    * Custom data fields may be attached to nodes, users, comments and taxonomy
      terms.
    * Node bodies and teasers are now Field API fields instead of
      being a hard-coded property of node objects.
    * In addition, any other object type may register with Field API
      and allow custom data fields to be attached to itself.
    * Provides most of the features of the former Content Construction
      Kit (CCK) module.
    * Taxonomy terms are now Field API fields that can be added to any fieldable
      object.
- Installer:
    * Refactored the installer into an API that allows Drupal to be installed
      via a command line script.
- Page organization
    * Made the help text area a full featured region with blocks.
    * Site mission is replaced with the highlighted content block region and
      separate RSS feed description settings.
    * The footer message setting was removed in favor of custom blocks.
    * Made the main page content a block which can be moved and ordered
      with other blocks in the same region.
    * Blocks can now return structured arrays for later rendering just
      like page callbacks.
- Translation system
    * The translation system now supports message context (msgctxt).
    * Added support for translatable fields to Field API.
- JavaScript changes
    * Upgraded the core JavaScript library to jQuery version 1.4.4.
    * Upgraded the jQuery Forms library to 2.52.
    * Added jQuery UI 1.8.7, which allows improvements to Drupal's user
      experience.
- Better module version support
    * Modules now can specify which version of another module they depend on.
- 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
- 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.

    * Added queue API support to cron API.
    * Added a locking framework to coordinate long-running operations across
      requests.

    * 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 set up 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 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.

  409. - Security:
  410. * Protected cron.php -- cron will only run if the proper key is provided.
  411. * Implemented a pluggable password system and much stronger password hashes
  412. that are compatible with the Portable PHP password hashing framework.
  413. * Rate limited login attempts to prevent brute-force password guessing, and
  414. improved the flood control API to allow variable time windows and
  415. identifiers for limiting user access to resources.
  416. * Transformed the "Update status" module into the "Update manager" which
  417. can securely install or update modules and themes via a web interface.
  418. - Usability:
  419. * Added contextual links (a.k.a. local tasks) to page elements, such as
  420. blocks, nodes, or comments, which allows to perform the most common tasks
  421. with a single click only.
  422. * Improved installer requirements check.
  423. * Improved support for integration of WYSIWYG editors.
  424. * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for input format listings.
  425. * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for language listing.
  426. * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for poll options.
  427. * Provided descriptions and human-readable names for user permissions.
  428. * Removed comment controls for users.
  429. * Removed display order settings for comment module. Comment display
  430. order can now be customized using the Views module.
  431. * Removed the 'related terms' feature from taxonomy module since this can
  432. now be achieved with Field API.
  433. * Added additional features to the default installation profile, and
  434. implemented a "slimmed down" profile designed for developers.
  435. * Added a built-in, automated cron run feature, which is triggered by site
  436. visitors.
  437. * Added an administrator role which is assigned all permissions for
  438. installed modules automatically.
  439. * Image toolkits are now provided by modules (rather than requiring a
  440. manual file copy to the includes directory).
  441. * Added an edit tab to taxonomy term pages.
  442. * Redesigned password strength validator.
  443. * Redesigned the add content type screen.

  449. automatic summaries and increases usability.
  450. * Replaced fieldsets on node edit and add pages with vertical tabs.
  451. - Performance:
  452. * Improved performance on uncached page views by loading multiple core
  453. objects in a single database query.
  454. * Improved performance for logged-in users by reducing queries for path
  455. alias lookups.
  456. * Improved support for HTTP proxies (including reverse proxies), allowing
  457. anonymous page views to be served entirely from the proxy.
  458. - Documentation:
  459. * Hook API documentation now included in Drupal core.
  460. - News aggregator:
  461. * Added OPML import functionality for RSS feeds.

  469. items.
  470. - Testing:
  471. * Added test framework and tests.
  472. - Improved time zone support:
  473. * Drupal now uses PHP's time zone database when rendering dates in local
  474. time. Site-wide and user-configured time zone offsets have been converted
  475. to time zone names; for example, Africa/Abidjan.
  476. * In some cases the upgrade and install scripts do not choose the preferred
  477. site default time zone. The automatically-selected time zone can be
  478. corrected at admin/config/regional/settings.
  479. * If your site is being upgraded from Drupal 6 and you do not have the
  480. contributed date or event modules installed, user time zone settings will
  481. fallback to the system time zone and will have to be reconfigured by each user.
  482. * User-configured time zones now serve as the default time zone for PHP
  483. date/time functions.
  484. - Filter system:
  485. * Revamped the filter API and text format storage.
  486. * Added support for default text formats to be assigned on a per-role basis.
  487. * Refactored the HTML corrector to take advantage of PHP 5 features.
  488. - User system:
  489. * Added clean API functions for creating, loading, updating, and deleting
  490. user roles and permissions.
  491. * Refactored the "access rules" component of user module: The user module
  492. now provides a simple interface for blocking single IP addresses. The
  493. previous functionality in the user module for restricting certain email
  494. addresses and usernames is now available as a contributed module. Further,
  495. IP address range blocking is no longer supported and should be implemented
  496. at the operating system level.
  497. * Removed per-user themes: Contributed modules with similar functionality
  498. are available.
  499. - OpenID:
  500. * Added support for Gmail and Google Apps for Domain identifiers. Users can
  501. now log in with their user@example.com identifier when example.com is
  502. powered by Google.
  503. * Made the OpenID module more pluggable.
  504. - Added code registry:
  505. * Using the registry, modules declare their includable files via their .info file,
  506. allowing Drupal to lazy-load classes and interfaces as needed.
  507. - Theme system:
  508. * Removed the Bluemarine, Chameleon and Pushbutton themes. These themes live
  509. on as contributed themes (https://www.drupal.org/project/bluemarine,
  510. https://www.drupal.org/project/chameleon and
  511. https://www.drupal.org/project/pushbutton).
  512. * Added Stark theme to make analyzing Drupal's default HTML and CSS easier.
  513. * Added Seven as the default administration theme.
  514. * Variable preprocessing of theme hooks prior to template rendering now goes
  515. through two phases: a 'preprocess' phase and a new 'process' phase. See
  516. http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
  517. * Theme hooks implemented as functions (rather than as templates) can now
  518. also have preprocess (and process) functions. See
  519. http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
  520. * Added Bartik as the default theme.
  521. - File handling:
  522. * Files are now first class Drupal objects with file_load(), file_save(),
  523. and file_validate() functions and corresponding hooks.
  524. * The file_move(), file_copy() and file_delete() functions now operate on
  525. file objects and invoke file hooks so that modules are notified and can
  526. respond to changes.
  527. * For the occasions when only basic file manipulation are needed--such as
  528. uploading a site logo--that don't require the overhead of databases and
  529. hooks, the current unmanaged copy, move and delete operations have been
  530. preserved but renamed to file_unmanaged_*().
  531. * Rewrote file handling to use PHP stream wrappers to enable support for
  532. both public and private files and to support pluggable storage mechanisms
  533. and access to remote resources (for example, S3 storage or Flickr photos).
  534. * The mime_extension_mapping variable has been removed. Modules that need to
  535. alter the default MIME type extension mappings should implement
  536. hook_file_mimetype_mapping_alter().
  537. * Added the hook_file_url_alter() hook, which makes it possible to serve
  538. files from a CDN.
  539. * Added a field specifically for uploading files, previously provided by
  540. the contributed module FileField.
  541. - Image handling:
  542. * Improved image handling, including better support for add-on image
  543. libraries.
  544. * Added API and interface for creating advanced image thumbnails.
  545. * Inclusion of additional effects such as rotate and desaturate.
  546. * Added a field specifically for uploading images, previously provided by
  547. the contributed module ImageField.
  548. - Added aliased multi-site support:
  549. * Added support for mapping domain names to sites directories.
  550. - Added RDF support:
  551. * Modules can declare RDF namespaces which are serialized in the tag
  552. for RDFa support.
  553. * Modules can specify how their data structure maps to RDF.
  554. * Added support for RDFa export of nodes, comments, terms, users, etc. and
  555. their fields.
  556. - Search engine optimization and web linking:
  557. * Added a rel="canonical" link on node and comment pages to prevent
  558. duplicate content indexing by search engines.
  559. * Added a default rel="shortlink" link on node and comment pages that
  560. advertises a short link as an alternative URL to third-party services.
  561. * Meta information is now alterable by all modules before rendering.
  562. - Field API:
  563. * Custom data fields may be attached to nodes, users, comments and taxonomy
  564. terms.
  565. * Node bodies and teasers are now Field API fields instead of
  566. being a hard-coded property of node objects.
  567. * In addition, any other object type may register with Field API
  568. and allow custom data fields to be attached to itself.
  569. * Provides most of the features of the former Content Construction
  570. Kit (CCK) module.
  571. * Taxonomy terms are now Field API fields that can be added to any fieldable
  572. object.
  573. - Installer:
  574. * Refactored the installer into an API that allows Drupal to be installed
  575. via a command line script.
  576. - Page organization
  577. * Made the help text area a full featured region with blocks.
  578. * Site mission is replaced with the highlighted content block region and
  579. separate RSS feed description settings.
  580. * The footer message setting was removed in favor of custom blocks.
  581. * Made the main page content a block which can be moved and ordered
  582. with other blocks in the same region.
  583. * Blocks can now return structured arrays for later rendering just
  584. like page callbacks.
  585. - Translation system
  586. * The translation system now supports message context (msgctxt).
  587. * Added support for translatable fields to Field API.
  588. - JavaScript changes
  589. * Upgraded the core JavaScript library to jQuery version 1.4.4.
  590. * Upgraded the jQuery Forms library to 2.52.

  597. modules with similar functionality are available:
  598. * Blog API module
  599. * Ping module
  600. * Throttle module
  601. - Improved node access control system.
  602. * All modules may now influence the access to a node at runtime, not just
  603. the module that defined a node.
  604. * Users may now be allowed to bypass node access restrictions without giving
  605. them complete access to the site.
  606. * Access control affects both published and unpublished nodes.
  607. * Numerous other improvements to the node access system.
  608. - Actions system
  609. * Simplified definitions of actions and triggers.
  610. * Removed dependency on the combination of hooks and operations. Triggers
  611. now directly map to module hooks.
  612. - Task handling

  1351. * Story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
  1352. * 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.
  1353. - Multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
  1354. * You can set up multiple Drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.

  1360. * 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.
  1361. - Added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
  1362. * 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.
  1363. - Added FAQ module
  1364. - Changed the "open submission queue" into a (optional) module.
