Welcome Drupal 6Published on the 13th February, 2008
Drupal 6 was released today! After having a play with the beta and release candidates...well, I don't have to say; this really is a phenomenal release! Here are some of my favourite new features which I'm looking forward to using:
- Extended logging - You can set Drupal for OS level logging
- Batch API - A progress bar can track tasks running in the background through multiple HTTP requests
- Scripting from the command line - This is really cool! You can now run Drupal code through the command line
- Forum improvements - Granular permissions can allow more control over forum moderation
- Sticky table headers - Does what it says on the tin
- Drag and drop features - Again, the tin...
- CSS only theming - Define regions etc. in .info files without writing any php code, then set styles in CSS
Well done to everyone who has been clearly working hard on this!
