82

    
83
Drupal 7.50, 2016-07-07 
84
-----------------------
85
- Added a new "administer fields" permission for trusted users, which is
86
  required in addition to other permissions to use the field UI
87
  (https://www.drupal.org/node/2483307).
88
- Added clickjacking protection to Drupal core by setting the X-Frame-Options
89
  header to SAMEORIGIN by default (https://www.drupal.org/node/2735873).
90
- Added support for full UTF-8 (emojis, Asian symbols, mathematical symbols) on
91
  MySQL and other database drivers when the site and database are configured to
92
  allow it (https://www.drupal.org/node/2761183).
93
- Improved performance by avoiding a re-scan of directories when a file is
94
  missing; instead, trigger a PHP warning (minor API change:
95
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2581445).
96
- Made it possible to use any PHP callable in Ajax form callbacks, form API
97
  form-building functions, and form API wrapper callbacks (API addition:
98
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2761169).
99
- Fixed that following a password reset link while logged in leaves users unable
100
  to change their password (minor user interface change:
101
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2759023).
102
- Implemented various fixes for automated test failures on PHP 5.4+ and PHP 7.
103
  Drupal core automated tests now pass in these environments.
104
- Improved support for PHP 7 by fixing various problems.
105
- Fixed various bugs with PHP 5.5+ imagerotate(), including when incorrect
106
  color indices are passed in.
107
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.43 that allowed files uploaded by
108
  anonymous users to be lost after form validation errors, and that also caused
109
  regressions with certain contributed modules.
110
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.36 which caused the default value
111
  of hidden textarea fields to be ignored.
112
- Fixed robots.txt to allow search engines to access CSS, JavaScript and image
113
  files.
114
- Changed wording on the Update Manager settings page to clarify that the
115
  option to check for disabled module updates also applies to uninstalled
116
  modules (administrative-facing translatable string change).
117
- Changed the help text when editing menu links and configuring URL redirect
118
  actions so that it does not reference "Drupal" or the drupal.org website
119
  (administrative-facing translatable string change).
120
- Fixed the locale safety check that is used to ensure that translations are
121
  safe to allow for tokens in the href/src attributes of translated strings.
122
- Fixed that URL generation only works on port 80 when using domain based
123
  language negotation.
124
- Made method="get" forms work inside the administrative overlay. The fix adds
125
  a new hidden field to these forms when they appear inside the overlay (minor
126
  data structure change).
127
- Increased maxlength of menu link title input fields in the node form and
128
  menu link form from 128 to 255 characters.
129
- Removed meaningless post-check=0 and pre-check=0 cache control headers from
130
  Drupal HTTP responses.
131
- Added a .editorconfig file to auto-configure editors that support it.
132
- Added --directory option to run-tests.sh for easier test discovery of all
133
  tests within a project.
134
- Made run-tests.sh exit with a failure code when there are test fails or
135
  problems running the script.
136
- Fixed that cookies from previous tests are still present when a new test
137
  starts in DrupalWebTestCase.
138
- Improved performance of queries on the {authmap} database table.
139
- Fixed handling of missing files and functions inside the registry.
140
- Fixed Ajax handling for tableselect form elements that use checkboxes.
141
- Fixed a bug which caused ip_address() to return nothing when the client IP
142
  address and proxy IP address are the same.
143
- Added a new option to format_xml_elements() to allow for already encoded
144
  values.
145
- Changed the {history} table's node ID field to be an unsigned integer, to
146
  match the same field in the {node} table and to prevent errors with very
147
  large node IDs.
148
- Added an explicit page callback to the "admin/people/create" menu item in the
149
  User module (minor data structure change). Previously this automatically
150
  inherited the page callback from the parent "admin/people" menu item, which
151
  broke contributed modules that override the "admin/people" page.
152
- Numerous small bug fixes.
153
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
154
- Additional automated test coverage.
155

    
156
Drupal 7.44, 2016-06-15
157
-----------------------
158
- Fixed security issues (privilege escalation). See SA-CORE-2016-002.
159

    
160
Drupal 7.43, 2016-02-24
161
-----------------------
162
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2016-001.
163

    
164
Drupal 7.42, 2016-02-03
165
-----------------------
166
- Stopped invoking hook_flush_caches() on every cron run, since some modules
167
  use that hook for expensive operations that are only needed on cache clears.
168
- Changed the default .htaccess and web.config to block Composer-related files.
169
- Added static caching to module_load_include() to improve performance.
170
- Fixed double-encoding bugs in select field widgets provided by the Options
171
  module. The fix deprecates the 'strip_tags' property on option widgets and
172
  replaces it with a new 'strip_tags_and_unescape' property (minor data
173
  structure change).
174
- Improved MySQL 5.7 support by changing the MySQL database driver to stop
175
  using the ANSI SQL mode alias, which has different meanings for different
176
  MySQL versions.
177
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.39 which prevented autocomplete
178
  functionality from working on servers that are not configured to
179
  automatically recognize index.php.
180
- Updated the Archive_Tar PEAR package to the latest 1.4.0 release, to fix bugs
181
  with tar file handling on various operating systems.
182
- Fixed fatal errors on node preview when a field is displayed in the node
183
  teaser but hidden in the full node view. The fix removes a
184
  field_attach_prepare_view() call from the node_preview() function since it is
185
  redundant with one in the node preview theme layer.
186
- Improved the description of the "Trimmed" format option on text fields
187
  (translatable string change, and minor UI and data structure change).
188
- Numerous small bug fixes.
189
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
190
- Additional automated test coverage.
191

    
192
Drupal 7.41, 2015-10-21
193
-----------------------
194
- Fixed security issues (open redirect). See SA-CORE-2015-004.
195

    
196
Drupal 7.40, 2015-10-14
197
-----------------------
198
- Made Drupal's code for parsing .info files run much faster and use much less
199
  memory.
200
- Prevented drupal_http_request() from returning an error when it receives a
201
  201 through 206 HTTP status code.
202
- Added support for autoloading traits via the registry on sites running PHP
203
  5.4 or higher.
204
- Allowed the user-picture.tpl.php theme template to have HTML classes besides
205
  the default "user-picture" class printed in it (markup change).
206
- Fixed the URL text filter to convert e-mail addresses with plus signs into
207
  mailto: links.
208
- Added alternate text to file icons displayed by the File module, to improve
209
  accessibility (string change, and minor API addition to theme_file_icon()).
210
- Changed one-time login link failure messages to be displayed as errors or
211
  warnings as appropriate, rather than as regular status messages (minor UI
212
  change and data structure change).
213
- Changed the default settings.php configuration to exclude private files from
214
  the "404_fast_paths" behavior.
215
- Changed the page that displays filter tips for a particular text format, for
216
  example filter/tips/full_html, to return "page not found" or "access denied"
217
  if the format does not exist or the user does not have access to it. This
218
  change adds a new menu item to the Filter module's hook_menu() entry (minor
219
  data structure change).
220
- Added a new hook, hook_block_cid_parts_alter(), to allow modules to alter the
221
  cache keys used for caching a particular block.
222
- Made drupal_set_message() display and return messages when "0" is passed in
223
  as the message to set.
224
- Fixed non-functional "Files displayed by default" setting on file fields.
225
- The "worker callback" provided in hook_cron_queue_info() and the "finished"
226
  callback specified during batch processing can now be any PHP callable
227
  instead of just functions.
228
- Prevented drupal_set_time_limit() from decreasing the time limit in the case
229
  where the PHP maximum execution time is already unlimited.
230
- Changed the default thousand marker for numeric fields from a space ("1 000")
231
  to nothing ("1000") (minor UI change: https://www.drupal.org/node/1388376).
232
- Prevented malformed theme .info files (without a "name" key) from causing
233
  exceptions during menu rebuilds. If an .info file without a "name" key is
234
  found in a module or theme directory, Drupal will now use the module or
235
  theme's machine name as the display name instead.
236
- Made the format column in the {date_format_locale} database table
237
  case-sensitive, to match the equivalent column in the {date_formats} table.
238
- Fixed a bug in the Statistics module that caused JavaScript files attached to
239
  a node while it is being viewed to be omitted from the page.
240
- Added an optional 'project:' prefix that can be added to dependencies in a
241
  module's .info file to indicate which project the dependency resides in (API
242
  addition: https://www.drupal.org/node/2299747).
243
- Fixed various bugs that occurred after hooks were invoked early in the Drupal
244
  bootstrap and that caused module_implements() and drupal_alter() to cache an
245
  incomplete set of hook implementations for later use.
246
- Set the X-Content-Type-Options header to "nosniff" when possible, to prevent
247
  certain web browsers from picking an unsafe MIME type.
248
- Prevented the database API from executing multiple queries at once on MySQL,
249
  if the site's PHP version is new enough to do so. This is a secondary defense
250
  against SQL injection (API change: https://www.drupal.org/node/2463973).
251
- Fixed a bug in the Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade path which caused the upgrade
252
  to fail when there were multiple file records pointing to the same file.
253
- Numerous small bug fixes.
254
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
255
- Additional automated test coverage.
256

    
257
Drupal 7.39, 2015-08-19
258
-----------------------
259
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2015-003.
260

    
261
Drupal 7.38, 2015-06-17
262
-----------------------
263
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2015-002.
264

    
265
Drupal 7.37, 2015-05-07
266
-----------------------
267
- Fixed a regression in Drupal 7.36 which caused certain kinds of content types
268
  to become disabled if they were defined by a no-longer-enabled module.
269
- Removed a confusing description regarding automatic time zone detection from
270
  the user account form (minor UI and data structure change).
271
- Allowed custom HTML tags with a dash in the name to pass through filter_xss()
272
  when specified in the list of allowed tags.
273
- Allowed hook_field_schema() implementations to specify indexes for fields
274
  based on a fixed-length column prefix (rather than the entire column), as was
275
  already allowed in hook_schema() implementations.
276
- Fixed PDO exceptions on PostgreSQL when accessing invalid entity URLs.
277
- Added a sites/all/libraries folder to the codebase, with instructions for
278
  using it.
279
- Added a description to the "Administer text formats and filters" permission
280
  on the Permissions page (string change).
281
- Numerous small bug fixes.
282
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
283
- Additional automated test coverage.
284

    
285
Drupal 7.36, 2015-04-01
286
-----------------------
287
- Added a 'file_public_schema' variable which allows modules that define
288
  publicly-accessible streams in hook_stream_wrappers() to bypass file download
289
  access checks when processing managed file upload fields.
290
- Fixed a bug that caused database query tags not to be added to search-related
291
  database queries under many circumstances, and which prevented the
292
  corresponding hook_query_TAG_alter() implementations from being called.
293
- Fixed the "for" attribute on managed file upload field labels to improve
294
  accessibility (minor markup change).
295
- Added a 'javascript_always_use_jquery' variable which can be set to FALSE by
296
  sites that may not need jQuery loaded on all pages, and a 'requires_jquery'
297
  option to drupal_add_js() which modules can set to FALSE when adding
298
  JavaScript files that have no dependency on jQuery (API addition:
299
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2462717).
300
- Fixed incorrect foreign keys in the User module's role_permission and
301
  users_roles database tables.
302
- Changed permission descriptions throughout Drupal core to consistently link
303
  to relevant administrative pages, regardless of whether the user viewing the
304
  Permissions page can view the page being linked to (minor UI change).
305
- Fixed the drupal_add_region_content() function so that it actually adds
306
  content to the page.
307
- Added an 'image_suppress_itok_output' variable to allow sites already using
308
  the existing 'image_allow_insecure_derivatives' variable to also prevent
309
  security tokens from appearing in image derivative URLs.
310
- Fixed double-escaping of theme names in the Block module administrative
311
  interface (minor string change).
312
- Added basic support for Xdebug when running automated tests.
313
- Fixed a bug which caused previewing a node to remove elements from the node
314
  being edited. With this fix, calling node_preview() will no longer modify the
315
  passed-in node object (minor API change).
316
- Added a user_has_role() function to check whether a user has a particular
317
  role (API addition: https://www.drupal.org/node/2462411).
318
- Fixed installation failures when an opcode cache is enabled.
319
- Fixed a bug in the Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade path which caused private
320
  files to be inaccessible.
321
- Fixed a bug in the Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade path which caused user
322
  pictures to be lost.
323
- Fixed missing language code in hook_field_attach_view_alter() when it is
324
  invoked from field_view_field().
325
- Stopped sending ETag and Last-Modified headers for uncached page requests,
326
  since they break caching for certain Varnish and Nginx configurations.
327
- Changed the Simpletest module to allow PSR-4 test classes to be used in
328
  Drupal 7.
329
- Fixed a fatal error that occurred when using the Comment module's "Unpublish
330
  comment containing keyword(s)" action.
331
- Changed the "lang" attribute on language links to "xml:lang" so it validates
332
  as XHTML (minor markup change).
333
- Prevented the form API from allowing arrays to be submitted for various form
334
  elements, such as textfields, textareas, and password fields (API change:
335
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2462723).
336
- Fixed a bug in the Contact module which caused the global user object to have
337
  the incorrect name and e-mail address during the remainder of the page
338
  request after the contact form is submitted.
339
- Numerous small bug fixes.
340
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
341
- Additional automated test coverage.
342

    
343
Drupal 7.35, 2015-03-18
344
-----------------------
345
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2015-001.
346

    
347
Drupal 7.34, 2014-11-19
348
-----------------------
349
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2014-006.
350

    
351
Drupal 7.33, 2014-11-07
352
-----------------------
353
- Began storing the file modification time of each module and theme in the
354
  {system} database table so that contributed modules can use it to identify
355
  recently changed modules and themes (minor data structure change to the
356
  return value of system_get_info() and other related functions).
357
- Added a "Did you mean?" feature to the run-tests.sh script for running
358
  automated tests from the command line, to help developers who are attempting
359
  to run a particular test class or group.
360
- Changed the date format used in various HTTP headers output by Drupal core
361
  from RFC 1123 format to RFC 7231 format.
362
- Added a "block_cache_bypass_node_grants" variable to allow sites which have
363
  node access modules enabled to use the block cache if desired (API addition).
364
- Made image derivative generation HTTP requests return a 404 error (rather
365
  than a 500 error) when the source image does not exist.
366
- Fixed a bug which caused user pictures to be removed from the user object
367
  after saving, and resulted in data loss if the user account was subsequently
368
  re-saved.
369
- Fixed a bug in which field_has_data() did not return TRUE for fields that
370
  only had data in older entity revisions, leading to loss of the field's data
371
  when the field configuration was edited.
372
- Fixed a bug which caused the Ajax progress throbber to appear misaligned in
373
  many situatons (minor styling change).
374
- Prevented the Bartik theme from lower-casing the "Permalink" link on
375
  comments, for improved multilingual support (minor UI change).
376
- Added a "preferred_menu_links" tag to the database query that is used by
377
  menu_link_get_preferred() to find the preferred menu link for a given path,
378
  to make it easier to alter.
379
- Increased the maximum allowed length of block titles to 255 characters
380
  (database schema change to the {block} table).
381
- Removed the Field module's field_modules_uninstalled() function, since it did
382
  not do anything when it was invoked.
383
- Added a "theme_hook_original" variable to templates and theme functions and
384
  an optional sitewide theme debug mode, to provide contextual information in
385
  the page's HTML to theme developers. The theme debug mode is based on the one
386
  used with Twig in Drupal 8 and can be accessed by setting the "theme_debug"
387
  variable to TRUE (API addition).
388
- Added an entity_view_mode_prepare() API function to allow entity-defining
389
  modules to properly invoke hook_entity_view_mode_alter(), and used it
390
  throughout Drupal core to fix bugs with the invocation of that hook (API
391
  change: https://www.drupal.org/node/2369141).
392
- Security improvement: Made the database API's orderBy() method sanitize the
393
  sort direction ("ASC" or "DESC") for queries built with db_select(), so that
394
  calling code does not have to.
395
- Changed the RDF module to consistently output RDF metadata for nodes and
396
  comments near where the node is rendered in the HTML (minor markup and data
397
  structure change).
398
- Added an HTML class to RDFa metatags throughout Drupal to prevent them from
399
  accidentally affecting the site appearance (minor markup change).
400
- Fixed a bug in the Unicode requirements check which prevented installing
401
  Drupal on PHP 5.6.
402
- Fixed a bug which caused drupal_get_bootstrap_phase() to abort the bootstrap
403
  when called early in the page request.
404
- Renamed the "Search result" view mode to "Search result highlighting input"
405
  to better reflect how it is used (UI change).
406
- Improved database queries generated by EntityFieldQuery in the case where
407
  delta or language condition groups are used, to reduce the number of INNER
408
  JOINs (this is a minor data structure change affecting code which implements
409
  hook_query_alter() on these queries).
410
- Removed special-case behavior for file uploads which allowed user #1 to
411
  bypass maximum file size and user quota limits.
412
- Numerous small bug fixes.
413
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
414
- Additional automated test coverage.
415

    
416
Drupal 7.32, 2014-10-15
417
-----------------------
418
- Fixed security issues (SQL injection). See SA-CORE-2014-005.
419

    
420
Drupal 7.31, 2014-08-06
421
-----------------------
422
- Fixed security issues (denial of service). See SA-CORE-2014-004.
423

    
424
Drupal 7.30, 2014-07-24
425
-----------------------
426
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.29 that caused files or images
427
  attached to taxonomy terms to be deleted when the taxonomy term was edited
428
  and resaved (and other related bugs with contributed and custom modules).
429
- Added a warning on the permissions page to recommend restricting access to
430
  the "View site reports" permission to trusted administrators. See
431
  DRUPAL-PSA-2014-002.
432
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
433
- Additional automated test coverage.
434

    
435
Drupal 7.29, 2014-07-16
436
-----------------------
437
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2014-003.
438

    
439
Drupal 7.28, 2014-05-08
440
-----------------------
441
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.27 that caused JavaScript to break
442
  on older browsers (such as Internet Explorer 8 and earlier) when Ajax was
443
  used.
444
- Increased the timeout used by the Update Manager module when it fetches data
445
  from drupal.org (from 5 seconds to 30 seconds), to work around a problem
446
  which causes incomplete information about security updates to be presented to
447
  site administrators. This fix may lead to a performance slowdown on the
448
  Update Manager administration pages, when installing Drupal distributions,
449
  and (for sites that use the automated cron feature) on occasional page loads
450
  by site visitors.
451
- Fixed the behavior of the token system's "[node:summary]" token when the body
452
  field does not have a manual summary.
453
- Changed the behavior of db_query_temporary() so that it works on SELECT
454
  queries even when they have leading comments/whitespace. A side effect of
455
  this fix is that db_query_temporary() will now fail with an error if it is
456
  ever used on non-SELECT queries.
457
- Added a "node_admin_filter" tag to the database query used to build the list
458
  of nodes on the content administration page, to make it easier to alter.
459
- Made the cron queue system log any exceptions that are thrown while an item
460
  in the queue is being processed, rather than stopping the entire PHP request.
461
- Improved screen reader support by adding an aria-live HTML attribute to file
462
  upload fields when there is an error uploading the file (minor markup
463
  change).
464
- Made the pager on the Tracker module listing pages show the same number of
465
  items as other pagers throughout Drupal core (minor UI change).
466
- Fixed a bug which caused caches not to be properly cleared when a file entity
467
  was saved or deleted.
468
- Added several missing countries to the default list returned by
469
  country_get_list() (string change).
470
- Replaced the term "weight" with "influence" in the content ranking settings
471
  for search, and added help text for administrators (string change).
472
- Fixed untranslatable text strings in the administrative interface for the
473
  "Crop" effect provided by the Image module (minor string change).
474
- Fixed a bug in the Taxonomy module update function introduced in Drupal 7.26
475
  that caused memory and CPU problems on sites with very large numbers of
476
  unpublished nodes.
477
- Numerous small bug fixes.
478
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
479
- Additional automated test coverage.
480

    
481
Drupal 7.27, 2014-04-16
482
-----------------------
483
- Fixed security issues (information disclosure). See SA-CORE-2014-002.
484

    
485
Drupal 7.26, 2014-01-15
486
-----------------------
487
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2014-001.
488

    
489
Drupal 7.25, 2014-01-02
490
-----------------------
491
- Fixed a bug in node_save() which prevented the saved node from being updated
492
  in hook_node_insert() and other similar hooks.
493
- Added a meta tag to install.php to prevent it from being indexed by search
494
  engines even when Drupal is installed in a subfolder (minor markup change).
495
- Fixed a bug in the database API that caused frequent deadlock errors when
496
  running merge queries on some servers.
497
- Performance improvement: Prevented block rehashing from writing blocks to the
498
  database on every cache clear and cron run when the blocks have not changed.
499
  This fix results in an extra 'saved' key which is added and set to TRUE for
500
  each block returned by _block_rehash() that actually is saved to the database
501
  (data structure change).
502
- Added an optional 'skip on cron' parameter to hook_cron_queue_info() to allow
503
  queues to avoid being automatically processed on cron runs (API addition).
504
- Fixed a bug which caused hook_block_view_MODULE_DELTA_alter() to never be
505
  invoked if the block delta had a hyphen in it. To implement the hook when the
506
  block delta has a hyphen, modules should now replace hyphens with underscores
507
  when constructing the function name for the hook implementation.
508
- Fixed a bug which caused cached pages to sometimes be sent to the browser
509
  with incorrect compression. The fix adds a new 'page_compressed' key to the
510
  $cache->data array returned by drupal_page_get_cache() (minor data structure
511
  change).
512
- Fixed broken tests on PHP 5.5.
513
- Made the File and Image modules more robust when saving entities that have
514
  deleted files attached. The code in file_field_presave() will now remove the
515
  record of the deleted file from the entity before saving (minor data
516
  structure change).
517
- Standardized menu callback functions throughout Drupal core to return
518
  MENU_NOT_FOUND and MENU_ACCESS_DENIED rather than printing their own "page
519
  not found" or "access denied" pages (minor API change in the return value of
520
  these functions under some circumstances).
521
- Fixed a bug in which caches were not properly cleared when a node was deleted
522
  via the administrative interface.
523
- Changed the Bartik theme to render content contained in <pre>, <code> and
524
  similar tags in a larger font size, so it is easier to read.
525
- Fixed a bug in the Search module that caused exceptions to be thrown during
526
  searches if the server was not configured to represent decimal points as a
527
  period.
528
- Fixed a regression in the Image module that made image_style_url() not work
529
  when a relative path (rather than a complete file URI) was passed to it.
530
- Added an optional feature to the Statistics module to allow node views to be
531
  tracked by Ajax requests rather than during the server-side generation of the
532
  page. This allows the node counter to work on sites that use external page
533
  caches (string change and new administrative option:
534
  https://drupal.org/node/2164069).
535
- Added a link to the drupal.org documentation page for cron to the Cron
536
  settings page (string change).
537
- Added a 'drupal_anonymous_user_object' variable to allow the anonymous user
538
  object returned by drupal_anonymous_user() to be overridden with a classed
539
  object (API addition).
540
- Changed the database API to allow inserts based on a SELECT * query to work
541
  correctly.
542
- Changed the database schema of the {file_managed} table to allow Drupal to
543
  manage files larger than 4 GB.
544
- Changed the File module's hook_field_load() implementation to prevent file
545
  entity properties which have the same name as file or image field properties
546
  from overwriting the field properties (minor API change).
547
- Numerous small bug fixes.
548
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
549
- Additional automated test coverage.
550

    
551
Drupal 7.24, 2013-11-20
552
-----------------------
553
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities), see SA-CORE-2013-003.
554

    
555
Drupal 7.23, 2013-08-07
556
-----------------------
557
- Fixed a fatal error on PostgreSQL databases when updating the Taxonomy module
558
  from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7.
559
- Fixed the default ordering of CSS files for sites using right-to-left
560
  languages, to consistently place the right-to-left override file immediately
561
  after the CSS it is overriding (API change: https://drupal.org/node/2058463).
562
- Added a drupal_check_memory_limit() API function to allow the memory limit to
563
  be checked consistently (API addition).
564
- Changed the default web.config file for IIS servers to allow favicon.ico
565
  files which are present in the filesystem to be accessed.
566
- Fixed inconsistent support for the 'tel' protocol in Drupal's URL filtering
567
  functions.
568
- Performance improvement: Allowed all hooks to be included in the
569
  module_implements() cache, even those that are only invoked on HTTP POST
570
  requests.
571
- Made the database system replace truncate queries with delete queries when
572
  inside a transaction, to fix issues with PostgreSQL and other databases.
573
- Fixed a bug which caused nested contextual links to display improperly.
574
- Fixed a bug which prevented cached image derivatives from being flushed for
575
  private files and other non-default file schemes.
576
- Fixed drupal_render() to always return an empty string when there is no
577
  output, rather than sometimes returning NULL (minor API change).
578
- Added protection to cache_clear_all() to ensure that non-cache tables cannot
579
  be truncated (API addition: a new isValidBin() method has been added to the
580
  default database cache implementation).
581
- Changed the default .htaccess file to support HTTP authorization in CGI
582
  environments.
583
- Changed the password reset form to pre-fill the username when requested via a
584
  URL query parameter, and used this in the error message that appears after a
585
  failed login attempt (minor data structure and behavior change).
586
- Fixed broken support for foreign keys in the field API.
587
- Fixed "No active batch" error when a user cancels their own account.
588
- Added a description to the "access content overview" permission on the
589
  permissions page (string change).
590
- Added a drupal_array_diff_assoc_recursive() function to allow associative
591
  arrays to be compared recursively (API addition).
592
- Added human-readable labels to image styles, in addition to the existing
593
  machine-readable name (API change: https://drupal.org/node/2058503).
594
- Moved the drupal_get_hash_salt() function to bootstrap.inc and used it in
595
  additional places in the code, for added security in the case where there is
596
  no hash salt in settings.php.
597
- Fixed a regression in Drupal 7.22 that caused internal server errors for
598
  sites running on very old Apache 1.x web servers.
599
- Numerous small bug fixes.
600
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
601
- Additional automated test coverage.
602

    
603
Drupal 7.22, 2013-04-03
604
-----------------------
605
- Allowed the drupal_http_request() function to be overridden so that
606
  additional HTTP request capabilities can be added by contributed modules.
607
- Changed the Simpletest module to allow PSR-0 test classes to be used in
608
  Drupal 7.
609
- Removed an unnecessary "Content-Disposition" header from private file
610
  downloads; it prevented many private files from being viewed inline in a web
611
  browser.
612
- Changed various field API functions to allow them to optionally act on a
613
  single field within an entity (API addition: http://drupal.org/node/1825844).
614
- Fixed a bug which prevented Drupal's file transfer functionality from working
615
  on some PHP 5.4 systems.
616
- Fixed incorrect log message when theme() is called for a theme hook that does
617
  not exist (minor string change).
618
- Fixed Drupal's token-replacement system to allow spaces in the token value.
619
- Changed the default behavior after a user creates a node they do not have
620
  access to view. The user will now be redirected to the front page rather than
621
  an access denied page.
622
- Fixed a bug which prevented empty HTTP headers (such as "0") from being set.
623
  (Minor behavior change: Callers of drupal_add_http_header() must now set
624
  FALSE explicitly to prevent a header from being sent at all; this was already
625
  indicated in the function's documentation.)
626
- Fixed OpenID errors when more than one module implements hook_openid(). The
627
  behavior is now changed so that if more than one module tries to set the same
628
  parameter, the last module's change takes effect.
629
- Fixed a serious documentation bug: The $name variable in the
630
  taxonomy-term.tpl.php theme template was incorrectly documented as being
631
  sanitized when in fact it is not.
632
- Fixed a bug which prevented Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrades on sites which had
633
  duplicate permission names in the User module's database tables.
634
- Added an empty "datatype" attribute to taxonomy term and username links to
635
  make the RDFa markup upward compatible with RDFa 1.1 (minor markup addition).
636
- Fixed a bug which caused the denial-of-service protection added in Drupal
637
  7.20 to break certain valid image URLs that had an extra slash in them.
638
- Fixed a bug with update queries in the SQLite database driver that prevented
639
  Drupal from being installed with SQLite on PHP 5.4.
640
- Fixed enforced dependencies errors updating to recent versions of Drupal 7 on
641
  certain non-MySQL databases.
642
- Refactored the Field module's caching behavior to obtain large improvements
643
  in memory usage for sites with many fields and instances (API addition:
644
  http://drupal.org/node/1915646).
645
- Fixed entity argument not being passed to implementations of
646
  hook_file_download_access_alter(). The fix adds an additional context
647
  parameter that can be passed when calling drupal_alter() for any hook (API
648
  change: http://drupal.org/node/1882722).
649
- Fixed broken support for translatable comment fields (API change:
650
  http://drupal.org/node/1874724).
651
- Added an assertThemeOutput() method to Simpletest to allow tests to check
652
  that themed output matches an expected HTML string (API addition).
653
- Added a link to "Install another module" after a module has been successfully
654
  downloaded via the Update Manager (UI change).
655
- Added an optional "exclusive" flag to installation profile .info files which
656
  allows Drupal distributions to force a profile to be selected during
657
  installation (API addition: http://drupal.org/node/1961012).
658
- Fixed a bug which caused the database API to not properly close database
659
  connections.
660
- Added a link to the URL for running cron from outside the site to the Cron
661
  settings page (UI change).
662
- Fixed a bug which prevented image styles from being reverted on PHP 5.4.
663
- Made the default .htaccess rules protocol sensitive to improve security for
664
  sites which use HTTPS and redirect between "www" and non-"www" versions of
665
  the page.
666
- Numerous small bug fixes.
667
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
668
- Additional automated test coverage.
669

    
670
Drupal 7.21, 2013-03-06
671
-----------------------
672
- Allowed sites using the 'image_allow_insecure_derivatives' variable to still
673
  have partial protection from the security issues fixed in Drupal 7.20.
674

    
675
Drupal 7.20, 2013-02-20
676
-----------------------
677
- Fixed security issues (denial of service). See SA-CORE-2013-002.
678

    
679
Drupal 7.19, 2013-01-16
680
-----------------------
681
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2013-001.
682

    
683
Drupal 7.18, 2012-12-19
684
-----------------------
685
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2012-004.
686

    
687
Drupal 7.17, 2012-11-07
688
-----------------------
689
- Changed the default value of the '404_fast_html' variable to have a DOCTYPE
690
  declaration.
691
- Made it possible to use associative arrays for the 'items' variable in
692
  theme_item_list().
693
- Fixed a bug which prevented required form elements without a title from being
694
  given an "error" class when the form fails validation.
695
- Prevented duplicate HTML IDs from appearing when two forms are displayed on
696
  the same page and one of them is submitted with invalid data (minor markup
697
  change).
698
- Fixed a bug which prevented Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrades on sites which had
699
  stale data in the Upload module's database tables.
700
- Fixed a bug in the States API which prevented certain types of form elements
701
  from being disabled when requested.
702
- Allowed aggregator feed items with author names longer than 255 characters to
703
  have a truncated version saved to the database (rather than causing a fatal
704
  error).
705
- Allowed aggregator feed items to have URLs longer than 255 characters
706
  (schema change which results in several columns in the Aggregator module's
707
  database tables changing from VARCHAR to TEXT fields).
708
- Added hook_taxonomy_term_view() and standardized the process for rendering
709
  taxonomy terms to invoke hook_entity_view() and otherwise make it consistent
710
  with other entities (API change: http://drupal.org/node/1808870).
711
- Added hook_entity_view_mode_alter() to allow modules to change entity view
712
  modes on display (API addition: http://drupal.org/node/1833086).
713
- Fixed a bug which made database queries running a "LIKE" query on blob fields
714
  fail on PostgreSQL databases. This caused errors during the Drupal 6 to
715
  Drupal 7 upgrade.
716
- Changed the hook_menu() entry for Drupal's rss.xml page to prevent extra path
717
  components from being accidentally passed to the page callback function (data
718
  structure change).
719
- Removed a non-standard "name" attribute from Drupal's default Content-Type
720
  header for file downloads.
721
- Fixed the theme settings form to properly clean up submitted values in
722
  $form_state['values'] when the form is submitted (data structure change).
723
- Fixed an inconsistency by removing the colon from the end of the label on
724
  multi-valued form fields (minor string change).
725
- Added support for 'weight' in hook_field_widget_info() to allow modules to
726
  control the order in which widgets are displayed in the Field UI.
727
- Updated various tables in the OpenID and Book modules to use the default
728
  "empty table" text pattern (string change).
729
- Added proxy server support to drupal_http_request().
730
- Added "lang" attributes to language links, to better support screen readers.
731
- Fixed double occurrence of a "ul" HTML tag on secondary local tasks in the
732
  Seven theme (markup change).
733
- Fixed bugs which caused taxonomy vocabulary and shortcut set titles to be
734
  double-escaped. The fix replaces the taxonomy vocabulary overview page and
735
  "Edit shortcuts" menu items' title callback entries in hook_menu() with new
736
  functions that do not escape HTML characters (data structure change).
737
- Modified the Update manager module to allow drupal.org to collect usage
738
  statistics for individual modules and themes, rather than only for entire
739
  projects.
740
- Modified the node listing database query on Drupal's default front page to
741
  add table aliases for better query altering (this is a data structure change
742
  affecting code which implements hook_query_alter() on this query).
743
- Improved the translatability of the "Field type(s) in use" message on the
744
  modules page (admin-facing string change).
745
- Fixed a regression which caused a "call to undefined function
746
  drupal_find_base_themes()" fatal error under rare circumstances.
747
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
748
- Additional automated test coverage.
749

    
750
Drupal 7.16, 2012-10-17
751
-----------------------
752
- Fixed security issues (Arbitrary PHP code execution and information
753
  disclosure). See SA-CORE-2012-003.
754

    
755
Drupal 7.15, 2012-08-01
756
-----------------------
757
- Introduced a 'user_password_reset_timeout' variable to allow the 24-hour
758
  expiration for user password reset links to be adjusted (API addition).
759
- Fixed database errors due to ambiguous column names that occurred when
760
  EntityFieldQuery was used in certain situations.
761
- Changed the drupal_array_get_nested_value() function to return a reference
762
  (API addition).
763
- Changed the System module's hook_block_info() implementation to assign the
764
  "Main page content" and "System help" blocks to appropriate regions by
765
  default and prevent error messages on the block administration page (data
766
  structure change).
767
- Fixed regression: Non-node entities couldn't be accessed with
768
  EntityFieldQuery.
769
- Fixed regression: Optional radio buttons with an empty, non-NULL default
770
  value led to an illegal choice error when none were selected.
771
- Reorganized the testing framework to split setUp() into specific sub-methods
772
  and fix several regressions in the process.
773
- Fixed bug which made it impossible to search for strings that have not been
774
  translated into a particular language.
775
- Renamed the "Field" column on the Manage Fields screen to "Field type", since
776
  the former was confusing and inaccurate (UI change).
777
- Performance improvement: Removed needless call to system_rebuild_module_data()
778
  in field_sync_field_status(), greatly speeding up bulk module enable/disable.
779
- Fixed bug which prevented notifications from being sent when core, module, and
780
  theme updates are available.
781
- Fixed bug which prevented sub-themes from inheriting the default values of
782
  theme settings defined by the base theme.
783

  change: http://drupal.org/node/1663020).
798

800
  queries which field storage engines can respond to (API addition:
801
  http://drupal.org/node/1597378).
802

1030

    
1031
Drupal 7.0, 2011-01-05 
1032
----------------------
1033
- Database:
1034
    * Fully rewritten database layer utilizing PHP 5's PDO abstraction layer.
1035
    * Drupal now requires MySQL >= 5.0.15 or PostgreSQL >= 8.3.
1036
    * Added query builders for INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MERGE, and SELECT queries.
1037
    * Support for master/slave replication, transactions, multi-insert queries,
1038
      and other features.
1039
    * Added support for the SQLite database engine.
1040
    * Default to InnoDB engine, rather than MyISAM, on MySQL when available.
1041
      This offers increased scalability and data integrity.
1042
- Security:
1043
    * Protected cron.php -- cron will only run if the proper key is provided.
1044
    * Implemented a pluggable password system and much stronger password hashes
1045
      that are compatible with the Portable PHP password hashing framework.
1046
    * Rate limited login attempts to prevent brute-force password guessing, and
1047
      improved the flood control API to allow variable time windows and
1048
      identifiers for limiting user access to resources.
1049
    * Transformed the "Update status" module into the "Update manager" which
1050
      can securely install or update modules and themes via a web interface.
1051
- Usability:
1052
    * Added contextual links (a.k.a. local tasks) to page elements, such as
1053
      blocks, nodes, or comments, which allows to perform the most common tasks
1054
      with a single click only.
1055
    * Improved installer requirements check.
1056
    * Improved support for integration of WYSIWYG editors.
1057
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for input format listings.
1058
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for language listing.
1059
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for poll options.
1060
    * Provided descriptions and human-readable names for user permissions.
1061
    * Removed comment controls for users.
1062
    * Removed display order settings for comment module. Comment display
1063
      order can now be customized using the Views module.
1064
    * Removed the 'related terms' feature from taxonomy module since this can
1065
      now be achieved with Field API.
1066
    * Added additional features to the default installation profile, and
1067
      implemented a "slimmed down" profile designed for developers.
1068
    * Added a built-in, automated cron run feature, which is triggered by site
1069
      visitors.
1070
    * Added an administrator role which is assigned all permissions for
1071
      installed modules automatically.
1072
    * Image toolkits are now provided by modules (rather than requiring a
1073
      manual file copy to the includes directory).
1074
    * Added an edit tab to taxonomy term pages.
1075
    * Redesigned password strength validator.
1076
    * Redesigned the add content type screen.
1077
    * Highlight duplicate URL aliases.
1078
    * Renamed "input formats" to "text formats".
1079
    * Moved text format permissions to the main permissions page.
1080
    * Added configurable ability for users to cancel their own accounts.
1081
    * Added "vertical tabs", a reusable interface component that features
1082
      automatic summaries and increases usability.
1083
    * Replaced fieldsets on node edit and add pages with vertical tabs.
1084
- Performance:
1085
    * Improved performance on uncached page views by loading multiple core
1086
      objects in a single database query.
1087
    * Improved performance for logged-in users by reducing queries for path
1088
      alias lookups.
1089
    * Improved support for HTTP proxies (including reverse proxies), allowing
1090
      anonymous page views to be served entirely from the proxy.
1091
- Documentation:
1092
    * Hook API documentation now included in Drupal core.
1093
- News aggregator:
1094
    * Added OPML import functionality for RSS feeds.
1095
    * Optionally, RSS feeds may be configured to not automatically generate feed blocks.
1096
- Search:
1097
    * Added support for language-aware searches.
1098
- Aggregator:
1099
    * Introduced architecture that allows pluggable parsers and processors for
1100
      syndicating RSS and Atom feeds.
1101
    * Added options to suspend updating specific feeds and never discard feeds
1102
      items.
1103
- Testing:
1104
    * Added test framework and tests.
1105
- Improved time zone support:
1106
    * Drupal now uses PHP's time zone database when rendering dates in local
1107
      time. Site-wide and user-configured time zone offsets have been converted
1108
      to time zone names, e.g. Africa/Abidjan.
1109
    * In some cases the upgrade and install scripts do not choose the preferred
1110
      site default time zone. The automatically-selected time zone can be
1111
      corrected at admin/config/regional/settings.
1112
    * If your site is being upgraded from Drupal 6 and you do not have the
1113
      contributed date or event modules installed, user time zone settings will
1114
      fallback to the system time zone and will have to be reconfigured by each user.
1115
    * User-configured time zones now serve as the default time zone for PHP
1116
      date/time functions.
1117
- Filter system:
1118
    * Revamped the filter API and text format storage.
1119
    * Added support for default text formats to be assigned on a per-role basis.
1120
    * Refactored the HTML corrector to take advantage of PHP 5 features.
1121
- User system:
1122
    * Added clean API functions for creating, loading, updating, and deleting
1123
      user roles and permissions.
1124
    * Refactored the "access rules" component of user module: The user module
1125
      now provides a simple interface for blocking single IP addresses. The
1126
      previous functionality in the user module for restricting certain e-mail
1127
      addresses and usernames is now available as a contributed module. Further,
1128
      IP address range blocking is no longer supported and should be implemented
1129
      at the operating system level.
1130
    * Removed per-user themes: Contributed modules with similar functionality
1131
      are available.
1132
- OpenID:
1133
    * Added support for Gmail and Google Apps for Domain identifiers. Users can
1134
      now login with their user@example.com identifier when example.com is powered
1135
      by Google.
1136
    * Made the OpenID module more pluggable.
1137
- Added code registry:
1138
    * Using the registry, modules declare their includable files via their .info file,
1139
      allowing Drupal to lazy-load classes and interfaces as needed.
1140
- Theme system:
1141
    * Removed the Bluemarine, Chameleon and Pushbutton themes. These themes live
1142
      on as contributed themes (http://drupal.org/project/bluemarine,
1143
      http://drupal.org/project/chameleon and http://drupal.org/project/pushbutton).
1144
    * Added Stark theme to make analyzing Drupal's default HTML and CSS easier.
1145
    * Added Seven as the default administration theme.
1146
    * Variable preprocessing of theme hooks prior to template rendering now goes
1147
      through two phases: a 'preprocess' phase and a new 'process' phase. See
1148
      http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
1149
    * Theme hooks implemented as functions (rather than as templates) can now
1150
      also have preprocess (and process) functions. See
1151
      http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
1152
    * Added Bartik as the default theme.
1153
- File handling:
1154
    * Files are now first class Drupal objects with file_load(), file_save(),
1155
      and file_validate() functions and corresponding hooks.
1156
    * The file_move(), file_copy() and file_delete() functions now operate on
1157
      file objects and invoke file hooks so that modules are notified and can
1158
      respond to changes.
1159
    * For the occasions when only basic file manipulation are needed--such as
1160
      uploading a site logo--that don't require the overhead of databases and
1161
      hooks, the current unmanaged copy, move and delete operations have been
1162
      preserved but renamed to file_unmanaged_*().
1163
    * Rewrote file handling to use PHP stream wrappers to enable support for
1164
      both public and private files and to support pluggable storage mechanisms
1165
      and access to remote resources (e.g. S3 storage or Flickr photos).
1166
    * The mime_extension_mapping variable has been removed. Modules that need to
1167
      alter the default MIME type extension mappings should implement
1168
      hook_file_mimetype_mapping_alter().
1169
    * Added the hook_file_url_alter() hook, which makes it possible to serve
1170
      files from a CDN.
1171
    * Added a field specifically for uploading files, previously provided by
1172
      the contributed module FileField.
1173
- Image handling:
1174
    * Improved image handling, including better support for add-on image
1175
      libraries.
1176
    * Added API and interface for creating advanced image thumbnails.
1177
    * Inclusion of additional effects such as rotate and desaturate.
1178

1187
      their fields.
1188
- Search engine optimization and web linking:
1189
    * Added a rel="canonical" link on node and comment pages to prevent
1190
      duplicate content indexing by search engines.
1191
    * Added a default rel="shortlink" link on node and comment pages that
1192
      advertises a short link as an alternative URL to third-party services.
1193
    * Meta information is now alterable by all modules before rendering.
1194
- Field API:
1195
    * Custom data fields may be attached to nodes, users, comments and taxonomy
1196
      terms.
1197
    * Node bodies and teasers are now Field API fields instead of
1198
      being a hard-coded property of node objects.
1199
    * In addition, any other object type may register with Field API
1200
      and allow custom data fields to be attached to itself.
1201
    * Provides most of the features of the former Content Construction
1202
      Kit (CCK) module.
1203
    * Taxonomy terms are now Field API fields that can be added to any fieldable
1204
      object.
1205
- Installer:
1206
    * Refactored the installer into an API that allows Drupal to be installed
1207
      via a command line script.
1208
- Page organization
1209
    * Made the help text area a full featured region with blocks.
1210
    * Site mission is replaced with the highlighted content block region and
1211
      separate RSS feed description settings.
1212
    * The footer message setting was removed in favor of custom blocks.
1213
    * Made the main page content a block which can be moved and ordered
1214
      with other blocks in the same region.
1215
    * Blocks can now return structured arrays for later rendering just
1216
      like page callbacks.
1217
- Translation system
1218
    * The translation system now supports message context (msgctxt).
1219

    * Upgraded the jQuery Forms library to 2.52.
1223
    * Added jQuery UI 1.8.7, which allows improvements to Drupal's user
1224
      experience.
1225
- Better module version support
1226
    * Modules now can specify which version of another module they depend on.
1227
- Removed modules from core
1228
    * The following modules have been removed from core, because contributed
1229
      modules with similar functionality are available:
1230
      * Blog API module
1231
      * Ping module
1232
      * Throttle module
1233
- Improved node access control system.
1234
    * All modules may now influence the access to a node at runtime, not just
1235
      the module that defined a node.
1236
    * Users may now be allowed to bypass node access restrictions without giving
1237
      them complete access to the site.
1238
    * Access control affects both published and unpublished nodes.
1239
    * Numerous other improvements to the node access system.
1240
- Actions system
1241
    * Simplified definitions of actions and triggers.
1242
    * Removed dependency on the combination of hooks and operations. Triggers
1243
      now directly map to module hooks.
1244
- Task handling
1245
    * Added a queue API to process many or long-running tasks.
1246
    * Added queue API support to cron API.
1247
    * Added a locking framework to coordinate long-running operations across
1248
      requests.

1454
    * Added .info files to themes and made it easier to specify regions and
1455
      features.
1456
    * Added theme registry: modules can directly provide .tpl.php files for
1457
      their themes without having to create theme_ functions.
1458
    * Used the Garland theme for the installation and maintenance pages.
1459
    * Added theme preprocess functions for themes that are templates.
1460
    * Added support for themeable functions in JavaScript.

2211
------------------------
2212
- Major overhaul of the entire underlying design:
2213

2226
- Added caching support which makes Drupal extremely scalable.

2253

2254
    * Made all modules use specific form_* functions to guarantee a rock-solid forms and more consistent layout.

2274
------------------------
2275

2276
    * Comment navigation should be less confusing now.
2277
    * Additional/alternative display and order methods have been added.
2278
    * Modules can be extended with a "comment system": modules can embed the existing comment system without having to write their own, duplicate comment system.
2279
- Added sections and section manager:
2280
    * Story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
2281
    * 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.
2282
- Multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
2283
    * You can set up multiple Drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.
2284
- Added "user ratings" similar to SlashCode's Karma or Scoop's Mojo:
2285
    * All rating logic is packed into a module to ease experimenting with different rating heuristics/algorithms.
2286
- Added "search infrastructure":
2287
    * Improved search page and integrated search functionality in the administration pages.
2288
- Added translation / localization / internationalization support:
2289
    * 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.
2290
- Added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
2291
    * 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.
2292
- Added FAQ module
2293
- Changed the "open submission queue" into a (optional) module.
2294

2295

2308
        + Added theme "example" (alias "Stone Age")
