- Additional automated test coverage.
156

160

- If a user navigates away from a page while an Ajax request is running they
196
  will no longer get an error message saying "An Ajax HTTP request terminated
197
  abnormally".
198
- The system_region_list() API function now takes an optional third parameter

201
- Numerous performance improvements.
202

204
- Additional automated test coverage.
205

    
206
Drupal 7.50, 2016-07-07 
207
-----------------------
208
- Added a new "administer fields" permission for trusted users, which is
209
  required in addition to other permissions to use the field UI
210
  (https://www.drupal.org/node/2483307).
211
- Added clickjacking protection to Drupal core by setting the X-Frame-Options
212
  header to SAMEORIGIN by default (https://www.drupal.org/node/2735873).
213
- Added support for full UTF-8 (emojis, Asian symbols, mathematical symbols) on
214
  MySQL and other database drivers when the site and database are configured to
215
  allow it (https://www.drupal.org/node/2761183).
216
- Improved performance by avoiding a re-scan of directories when a file is
217
  missing; instead, trigger a PHP warning (minor API change:
218
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2581445).
219
- Made it possible to use any PHP callable in Ajax form callbacks, form API
220
  form-building functions, and form API wrapper callbacks (API addition:
221
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2761169).
222
- Fixed that following a password reset link while logged in leaves users unable
223
  to change their password (minor user interface change:
224
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2759023).
225
- Implemented various fixes for automated test failures on PHP 5.4+ and PHP 7.
226
  Drupal core automated tests now pass in these environments.
227
- Improved support for PHP 7 by fixing various problems.
228
- Fixed various bugs with PHP 5.5+ imagerotate(), including when incorrect
229
  color indices are passed in.
230
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.43 that allowed files uploaded by
231
  anonymous users to be lost after form validation errors, and that also caused
232
  regressions with certain contributed modules.
233
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.36 which caused the default value
234
  of hidden textarea fields to be ignored.
235
- Fixed robots.txt to allow search engines to access CSS, JavaScript and image
236
  files.
237
- Changed wording on the Update Manager settings page to clarify that the
238
  option to check for disabled module updates also applies to uninstalled
239
  modules (administrative-facing translatable string change).
240
- Changed the help text when editing menu links and configuring URL redirect
241
  actions so that it does not reference "Drupal" or the drupal.org website
242
  (administrative-facing translatable string change).
243
- Fixed the locale safety check that is used to ensure that translations are
244
  safe to allow for tokens in the href/src attributes of translated strings.
245
- Fixed that URL generation only works on port 80 when using domain based
246
  language negotation.
247
- Made method="get" forms work inside the administrative overlay. The fix adds
248
  a new hidden field to these forms when they appear inside the overlay (minor
249
  data structure change).
250
- Increased maxlength of menu link title input fields in the node form and
251
  menu link form from 128 to 255 characters.
252
- Removed meaningless post-check=0 and pre-check=0 cache control headers from
253
  Drupal HTTP responses.
254
- Added a .editorconfig file to auto-configure editors that support it.
255
- Added --directory option to run-tests.sh for easier test discovery of all
256
  tests within a project.
257
- Made run-tests.sh exit with a failure code when there are test fails or
258
  problems running the script.
259
- Fixed that cookies from previous tests are still present when a new test
260
  starts in DrupalWebTestCase.
261
- Improved performance of queries on the {authmap} database table.
262
- Fixed handling of missing files and functions inside the registry.
263
- Fixed Ajax handling for tableselect form elements that use checkboxes.
264
- Fixed a bug which caused ip_address() to return nothing when the client IP
265
  address and proxy IP address are the same.
266
- Added a new option to format_xml_elements() to allow for already encoded
267
  values.
268
- Changed the {history} table's node ID field to be an unsigned integer, to
269
  match the same field in the {node} table and to prevent errors with very
270
  large node IDs.
271
- Added an explicit page callback to the "admin/people/create" menu item in the
272
  User module (minor data structure change). Previously this automatically
273
  inherited the page callback from the parent "admin/people" menu item, which
274
  broke contributed modules that override the "admin/people" page.
275
- Numerous small bug fixes.
276
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
277
- Additional automated test coverage.
278

    
279
Drupal 7.44, 2016-06-15
280
-----------------------
281
- Fixed security issues (privilege escalation). See SA-CORE-2016-002.
282

    
283
Drupal 7.43, 2016-02-24
284
-----------------------
285
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2016-001.
286

    
287
Drupal 7.42, 2016-02-03
288
-----------------------
289
- Stopped invoking hook_flush_caches() on every cron run, since some modules
290
  use that hook for expensive operations that are only needed on cache clears.
291
- Changed the default .htaccess and web.config to block Composer-related files.
292
- Added static caching to module_load_include() to improve performance.
293
- Fixed double-encoding bugs in select field widgets provided by the Options
294
  module. The fix deprecates the 'strip_tags' property on option widgets and
295
  replaces it with a new 'strip_tags_and_unescape' property (minor data
296
  structure change).
297
- Improved MySQL 5.7 support by changing the MySQL database driver to stop
298
  using the ANSI SQL mode alias, which has different meanings for different
299
  MySQL versions.
300
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.39 which prevented autocomplete
301
  functionality from working on servers that are not configured to
302
  automatically recognize index.php.
303
- Updated the Archive_Tar PEAR package to the latest 1.4.0 release, to fix bugs
304
  with tar file handling on various operating systems.
305
- Fixed fatal errors on node preview when a field is displayed in the node
306
  teaser but hidden in the full node view. The fix removes a
307
  field_attach_prepare_view() call from the node_preview() function since it is
308
  redundant with one in the node preview theme layer.
309
- Improved the description of the "Trimmed" format option on text fields
310
  (translatable string change, and minor UI and data structure change).
311
- Numerous small bug fixes.
312
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
313
- Additional automated test coverage.
314

    
315
Drupal 7.41, 2015-10-21
316
-----------------------
317
- Fixed security issues (open redirect). See SA-CORE-2015-004.
318

    
319
Drupal 7.40, 2015-10-14
320
-----------------------
321
- Made Drupal's code for parsing .info files run much faster and use much less
322
  memory.
323
- Prevented drupal_http_request() from returning an error when it receives a
324
  201 through 206 HTTP status code.
325
- Added support for autoloading traits via the registry on sites running PHP
326
  5.4 or higher.
327
- Allowed the user-picture.tpl.php theme template to have HTML classes besides
328
  the default "user-picture" class printed in it (markup change).
329
- Fixed the URL text filter to convert e-mail addresses with plus signs into
330
  mailto: links.
331
- Added alternate text to file icons displayed by the File module, to improve
332
  accessibility (string change, and minor API addition to theme_file_icon()).
333
- Changed one-time login link failure messages to be displayed as errors or
334
  warnings as appropriate, rather than as regular status messages (minor UI
335
  change and data structure change).
336
- Changed the default settings.php configuration to exclude private files from
337
  the "404_fast_paths" behavior.
338
- Changed the page that displays filter tips for a particular text format, for
339
  example filter/tips/full_html, to return "page not found" or "access denied"
340
  if the format does not exist or the user does not have access to it. This
341
  change adds a new menu item to the Filter module's hook_menu() entry (minor
342
  data structure change).
343
- Added a new hook, hook_block_cid_parts_alter(), to allow modules to alter the
344
  cache keys used for caching a particular block.
345
- Made drupal_set_message() display and return messages when "0" is passed in
346
  as the message to set.
347
- Fixed non-functional "Files displayed by default" setting on file fields.
348
- The "worker callback" provided in hook_cron_queue_info() and the "finished"
349
  callback specified during batch processing can now be any PHP callable
350
  instead of just functions.
351
- Prevented drupal_set_time_limit() from decreasing the time limit in the case
352
  where the PHP maximum execution time is already unlimited.
353
- Changed the default thousand marker for numeric fields from a space ("1 000")
354
  to nothing ("1000") (minor UI change: https://www.drupal.org/node/1388376).
355
- Prevented malformed theme .info files (without a "name" key) from causing
356
  exceptions during menu rebuilds. If an .info file without a "name" key is
357
  found in a module or theme directory, Drupal will now use the module or
358
  theme's machine name as the display name instead.
359
- Made the format column in the {date_format_locale} database table
360
  case-sensitive, to match the equivalent column in the {date_formats} table.
361
- Fixed a bug in the Statistics module that caused JavaScript files attached to
362
  a node while it is being viewed to be omitted from the page.
363
- Added an optional 'project:' prefix that can be added to dependencies in a
364
  module's .info file to indicate which project the dependency resides in (API
365
  addition: https://www.drupal.org/node/2299747).
366
- Fixed various bugs that occurred after hooks were invoked early in the Drupal
367
  bootstrap and that caused module_implements() and drupal_alter() to cache an
368
  incomplete set of hook implementations for later use.
369
- Set the X-Content-Type-Options header to "nosniff" when possible, to prevent
370
  certain web browsers from picking an unsafe MIME type.
371
- Prevented the database API from executing multiple queries at once on MySQL,
372
  if the site's PHP version is new enough to do so. This is a secondary defense
373
  against SQL injection (API change: https://www.drupal.org/node/2463973).
374
- Fixed a bug in the Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade path which caused the upgrade
375
  to fail when there were multiple file records pointing to the same file.
376
- Numerous small bug fixes.
377
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
378
- Additional automated test coverage.
379

    
380
Drupal 7.39, 2015-08-19
381

383

    
384

385
-----------------------
386
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2015-002.
387

    
388
Drupal 7.37, 2015-05-07
389
-----------------------
390
- Fixed a regression in Drupal 7.36 which caused certain kinds of content types
391
  to become disabled if they were defined by a no-longer-enabled module.
392
- Removed a confusing description regarding automatic time zone detection from
393
  the user account form (minor UI and data structure change).
394
- Allowed custom HTML tags with a dash in the name to pass through filter_xss()
395
  when specified in the list of allowed tags.
396
- Allowed hook_field_schema() implementations to specify indexes for fields
397
  based on a fixed-length column prefix (rather than the entire column), as was
398
  already allowed in hook_schema() implementations.
399
- Fixed PDO exceptions on PostgreSQL when accessing invalid entity URLs.
400
- Added a sites/all/libraries folder to the codebase, with instructions for
401
  using it.
402
- Added a description to the "Administer text formats and filters" permission
403
  on the Permissions page (string change).
404
- Numerous small bug fixes.
405
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
406
- Additional automated test coverage.
407

    
408
Drupal 7.36, 2015-04-01
409
-----------------------
410
- Added a 'file_public_schema' variable which allows modules that define
411
  publicly-accessible streams in hook_stream_wrappers() to bypass file download
412
  access checks when processing managed file upload fields.
413
- Fixed a bug that caused database query tags not to be added to search-related
414
  database queries under many circumstances, and which prevented the
415
  corresponding hook_query_TAG_alter() implementations from being called.
416
- Fixed the "for" attribute on managed file upload field labels to improve
417
  accessibility (minor markup change).
418
- Added a 'javascript_always_use_jquery' variable which can be set to FALSE by
419
  sites that may not need jQuery loaded on all pages, and a 'requires_jquery'
420
  option to drupal_add_js() which modules can set to FALSE when adding
421
  JavaScript files that have no dependency on jQuery (API addition:
422
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2462717).
423
- Fixed incorrect foreign keys in the User module's role_permission and
424
  users_roles database tables.
425
- Changed permission descriptions throughout Drupal core to consistently link
426
  to relevant administrative pages, regardless of whether the user viewing the
427
  Permissions page can view the page being linked to (minor UI change).
428
- Fixed the drupal_add_region_content() function so that it actually adds
429
  content to the page.
430
- Added an 'image_suppress_itok_output' variable to allow sites already using
431
  the existing 'image_allow_insecure_derivatives' variable to also prevent
432
  security tokens from appearing in image derivative URLs.
433
- Fixed double-escaping of theme names in the Block module administrative
434
  interface (minor string change).
435
- Added basic support for Xdebug when running automated tests.
436
- Fixed a bug which caused previewing a node to remove elements from the node
437
  being edited. With this fix, calling node_preview() will no longer modify the
438
  passed-in node object (minor API change).
439
- Added a user_has_role() function to check whether a user has a particular
440
  role (API addition: https://www.drupal.org/node/2462411).
441
- Fixed installation failures when an opcode cache is enabled.
442
- Fixed a bug in the Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade path which caused private
443
  files to be inaccessible.
444
- Fixed a bug in the Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrade path which caused user
445
  pictures to be lost.
446
- Fixed missing language code in hook_field_attach_view_alter() when it is
447
  invoked from field_view_field().
448
- Stopped sending ETag and Last-Modified headers for uncached page requests,
449
  since they break caching for certain Varnish and Nginx configurations.
450
- Changed the Simpletest module to allow PSR-4 test classes to be used in
451
  Drupal 7.
452
- Fixed a fatal error that occurred when using the Comment module's "Unpublish
453
  comment containing keyword(s)" action.
454
- Changed the "lang" attribute on language links to "xml:lang" so it validates
455
  as XHTML (minor markup change).
456
- Prevented the form API from allowing arrays to be submitted for various form
457
  elements, such as textfields, textareas, and password fields (API change:
458
  https://www.drupal.org/node/2462723).
459
- Fixed a bug in the Contact module which caused the global user object to have
460
  the incorrect name and e-mail address during the remainder of the page
461
  request after the contact form is submitted.
462
- Numerous small bug fixes.
463
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
464
- Additional automated test coverage.
465

    
466
Drupal 7.35, 2015-03-18
467
-----------------------
468
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2015-001.
469

    
470
Drupal 7.34, 2014-11-19
471
-----------------------
472
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2014-006.
473

    
474
Drupal 7.33, 2014-11-07
475
-----------------------
476
- Began storing the file modification time of each module and theme in the
477
  {system} database table so that contributed modules can use it to identify
478
  recently changed modules and themes (minor data structure change to the
479
  return value of system_get_info() and other related functions).
480
- Added a "Did you mean?" feature to the run-tests.sh script for running
481
  automated tests from the command line, to help developers who are attempting
482
  to run a particular test class or group.
483
- Changed the date format used in various HTTP headers output by Drupal core
484
  from RFC 1123 format to RFC 7231 format.
485
- Added a "block_cache_bypass_node_grants" variable to allow sites which have
486
  node access modules enabled to use the block cache if desired (API addition).
487
- Made image derivative generation HTTP requests return a 404 error (rather
488
  than a 500 error) when the source image does not exist.
489
- Fixed a bug which caused user pictures to be removed from the user object
490
  after saving, and resulted in data loss if the user account was subsequently
491
  re-saved.
492
- Fixed a bug in which field_has_data() did not return TRUE for fields that
493
  only had data in older entity revisions, leading to loss of the field's data
494
  when the field configuration was edited.
495
- Fixed a bug which caused the Ajax progress throbber to appear misaligned in
496
  many situatons (minor styling change).
497
- Prevented the Bartik theme from lower-casing the "Permalink" link on
498
  comments, for improved multilingual support (minor UI change).
499
- Added a "preferred_menu_links" tag to the database query that is used by
500
  menu_link_get_preferred() to find the preferred menu link for a given path,
501
  to make it easier to alter.
502
- Increased the maximum allowed length of block titles to 255 characters
503
  (database schema change to the {block} table).
504
- Removed the Field module's field_modules_uninstalled() function, since it did
505
  not do anything when it was invoked.
506
- Added a "theme_hook_original" variable to templates and theme functions and
507
  an optional sitewide theme debug mode, to provide contextual information in
508
  the page's HTML to theme developers. The theme debug mode is based on the one
509
  used with Twig in Drupal 8 and can be accessed by setting the "theme_debug"
510
  variable to TRUE (API addition).
511
- Added an entity_view_mode_prepare() API function to allow entity-defining
512
  modules to properly invoke hook_entity_view_mode_alter(), and used it
513
  throughout Drupal core to fix bugs with the invocation of that hook (API
514
  change: https://www.drupal.org/node/2369141).
515
- Security improvement: Made the database API's orderBy() method sanitize the
516
  sort direction ("ASC" or "DESC") for queries built with db_select(), so that
517
  calling code does not have to.
518
- Changed the RDF module to consistently output RDF metadata for nodes and
519
  comments near where the node is rendered in the HTML (minor markup and data
520
  structure change).
521
- Added an HTML class to RDFa metatags throughout Drupal to prevent them from
522
  accidentally affecting the site appearance (minor markup change).
523
- Fixed a bug in the Unicode requirements check which prevented installing
524
  Drupal on PHP 5.6.
525
- Fixed a bug which caused drupal_get_bootstrap_phase() to abort the bootstrap
526
  when called early in the page request.
527
- Renamed the "Search result" view mode to "Search result highlighting input"
528
  to better reflect how it is used (UI change).
529
- Improved database queries generated by EntityFieldQuery in the case where
530
  delta or language condition groups are used, to reduce the number of INNER
531
  JOINs (this is a minor data structure change affecting code which implements
532
  hook_query_alter() on these queries).
533
- Removed special-case behavior for file uploads which allowed user #1 to
534
  bypass maximum file size and user quota limits.
535
- Numerous small bug fixes.
536
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
537
- Additional automated test coverage.
538

    
539
Drupal 7.32, 2014-10-15
540
-----------------------
541
- Fixed security issues (SQL injection). See SA-CORE-2014-005.
542

    
543
Drupal 7.31, 2014-08-06
544
-----------------------
545
- Fixed security issues (denial of service). See SA-CORE-2014-004.
546

    
547
Drupal 7.30, 2014-07-24
548
-----------------------
549
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.29 that caused files or images
550
  attached to taxonomy terms to be deleted when the taxonomy term was edited
551
  and resaved (and other related bugs with contributed and custom modules).
552
- Added a warning on the permissions page to recommend restricting access to
553
  the "View site reports" permission to trusted administrators. See
554
  DRUPAL-PSA-2014-002.
555
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
556
- Additional automated test coverage.
557

    
558
Drupal 7.29, 2014-07-16
559
-----------------------
560
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2014-003.
561

    
562
Drupal 7.28, 2014-05-08
563
-----------------------
564
- Fixed a regression introduced in Drupal 7.27 that caused JavaScript to break
565
  on older browsers (such as Internet Explorer 8 and earlier) when Ajax was
566
  used.
567
- Increased the timeout used by the Update Manager module when it fetches data
568
  from drupal.org (from 5 seconds to 30 seconds), to work around a problem
569
  which causes incomplete information about security updates to be presented to
570
  site administrators. This fix may lead to a performance slowdown on the
571
  Update Manager administration pages, when installing Drupal distributions,
572
  and (for sites that use the automated cron feature) on occasional page loads
573
  by site visitors.
574
- Fixed the behavior of the token system's "[node:summary]" token when the body
575
  field does not have a manual summary.
576
- Changed the behavior of db_query_temporary() so that it works on SELECT
577
  queries even when they have leading comments/whitespace. A side effect of
578
  this fix is that db_query_temporary() will now fail with an error if it is
579
  ever used on non-SELECT queries.
580
- Added a "node_admin_filter" tag to the database query used to build the list
581
  of nodes on the content administration page, to make it easier to alter.
582
- Made the cron queue system log any exceptions that are thrown while an item
583
  in the queue is being processed, rather than stopping the entire PHP request.
584
- Improved screen reader support by adding an aria-live HTML attribute to file
585
  upload fields when there is an error uploading the file (minor markup
586
  change).
587
- Made the pager on the Tracker module listing pages show the same number of
588
  items as other pagers throughout Drupal core (minor UI change).
589
- Fixed a bug which caused caches not to be properly cleared when a file entity
590
  was saved or deleted.
591
- Added several missing countries to the default list returned by
592
  country_get_list() (string change).
593
- Replaced the term "weight" with "influence" in the content ranking settings
594
  for search, and added help text for administrators (string change).
595
- Fixed untranslatable text strings in the administrative interface for the
596
  "Crop" effect provided by the Image module (minor string change).
597
- Fixed a bug in the Taxonomy module update function introduced in Drupal 7.26
598
  that caused memory and CPU problems on sites with very large numbers of
599
  unpublished nodes.
600
- Numerous small bug fixes.
601
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
602
- Additional automated test coverage.
603

    
604
Drupal 7.27, 2014-04-16
605
-----------------------
606
- Fixed security issues (information disclosure). See SA-CORE-2014-002.
607

    
608
Drupal 7.26, 2014-01-15
609
-----------------------
610
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2014-001.
611

    
612
Drupal 7.25, 2014-01-02
613
-----------------------
614
- Fixed a bug in node_save() which prevented the saved node from being updated
615
  in hook_node_insert() and other similar hooks.
616
- Added a meta tag to install.php to prevent it from being indexed by search
617
  engines even when Drupal is installed in a subfolder (minor markup change).
618
- Fixed a bug in the database API that caused frequent deadlock errors when
619
  running merge queries on some servers.
620
- Performance improvement: Prevented block rehashing from writing blocks to the
621
  database on every cache clear and cron run when the blocks have not changed.
622
  This fix results in an extra 'saved' key which is added and set to TRUE for
623
  each block returned by _block_rehash() that actually is saved to the database
624
  (data structure change).
625
- Added an optional 'skip on cron' parameter to hook_cron_queue_info() to allow
626
  queues to avoid being automatically processed on cron runs (API addition).
627
- Fixed a bug which caused hook_block_view_MODULE_DELTA_alter() to never be
628
  invoked if the block delta had a hyphen in it. To implement the hook when the
629
  block delta has a hyphen, modules should now replace hyphens with underscores
630
  when constructing the function name for the hook implementation.
631
- Fixed a bug which caused cached pages to sometimes be sent to the browser
632
  with incorrect compression. The fix adds a new 'page_compressed' key to the
633
  $cache->data array returned by drupal_page_get_cache() (minor data structure
634
  change).
635
- Fixed broken tests on PHP 5.5.
636
- Made the File and Image modules more robust when saving entities that have
637
  deleted files attached. The code in file_field_presave() will now remove the
638
  record of the deleted file from the entity before saving (minor data
639
  structure change).
640
- Standardized menu callback functions throughout Drupal core to return
641
  MENU_NOT_FOUND and MENU_ACCESS_DENIED rather than printing their own "page
642
  not found" or "access denied" pages (minor API change in the return value of
643
  these functions under some circumstances).
644
- Fixed a bug in which caches were not properly cleared when a node was deleted
645
  via the administrative interface.
646
- Changed the Bartik theme to render content contained in <pre>, <code> and
647
  similar tags in a larger font size, so it is easier to read.
648
- Fixed a bug in the Search module that caused exceptions to be thrown during
649
  searches if the server was not configured to represent decimal points as a
650
  period.
651
- Fixed a regression in the Image module that made image_style_url() not work
652
  when a relative path (rather than a complete file URI) was passed to it.
653
- Added an optional feature to the Statistics module to allow node views to be
654
  tracked by Ajax requests rather than during the server-side generation of the
655
  page. This allows the node counter to work on sites that use external page
656
  caches (string change and new administrative option:
657
  https://drupal.org/node/2164069).
658
- Added a link to the drupal.org documentation page for cron to the Cron
659
  settings page (string change).
660
- Added a 'drupal_anonymous_user_object' variable to allow the anonymous user
661
  object returned by drupal_anonymous_user() to be overridden with a classed
662
  object (API addition).
663
- Changed the database API to allow inserts based on a SELECT * query to work
664
  correctly.
665
- Changed the database schema of the {file_managed} table to allow Drupal to
666
  manage files larger than 4 GB.
667
- Changed the File module's hook_field_load() implementation to prevent file
668
  entity properties which have the same name as file or image field properties
669
  from overwriting the field properties (minor API change).
670
- Numerous small bug fixes.
671
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
672
- Additional automated test coverage.
673

    
674
Drupal 7.24, 2013-11-20
675
-----------------------
676
- Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities), see SA-CORE-2013-003.
677

    
678
Drupal 7.23, 2013-08-07
679
-----------------------
680
- Fixed a fatal error on PostgreSQL databases when updating the Taxonomy module
681
  from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7.
682
- Fixed the default ordering of CSS files for sites using right-to-left
683
  languages, to consistently place the right-to-left override file immediately
684
  after the CSS it is overriding (API change: https://drupal.org/node/2058463).
685
- Added a drupal_check_memory_limit() API function to allow the memory limit to
686
  be checked consistently (API addition).
687
- Changed the default web.config file for IIS servers to allow favicon.ico
688
  files which are present in the filesystem to be accessed.
689
- Fixed inconsistent support for the 'tel' protocol in Drupal's URL filtering
690
  functions.
691
- Performance improvement: Allowed all hooks to be included in the
692
  module_implements() cache, even those that are only invoked on HTTP POST
693
  requests.
694
- Made the database system replace truncate queries with delete queries when
695
  inside a transaction, to fix issues with PostgreSQL and other databases.
696
- Fixed a bug which caused nested contextual links to display improperly.
697
- Fixed a bug which prevented cached image derivatives from being flushed for
698
  private files and other non-default file schemes.
699
- Fixed drupal_render() to always return an empty string when there is no
700
  output, rather than sometimes returning NULL (minor API change).
701
- Added protection to cache_clear_all() to ensure that non-cache tables cannot
702
  be truncated (API addition: a new isValidBin() method has been added to the
703
  default database cache implementation).
704
- Changed the default .htaccess file to support HTTP authorization in CGI
705
  environments.
706
- Changed the password reset form to pre-fill the username when requested via a
707
  URL query parameter, and used this in the error message that appears after a
708
  failed login attempt (minor data structure and behavior change).
709
- Fixed broken support for foreign keys in the field API.
710
- Fixed "No active batch" error when a user cancels their own account.
711
- Added a description to the "access content overview" permission on the
712
  permissions page (string change).
713
- Added a drupal_array_diff_assoc_recursive() function to allow associative
714
  arrays to be compared recursively (API addition).
715
- Added human-readable labels to image styles, in addition to the existing
716
  machine-readable name (API change: https://drupal.org/node/2058503).
717
- Moved the drupal_get_hash_salt() function to bootstrap.inc and used it in
718
  additional places in the code, for added security in the case where there is
719
  no hash salt in settings.php.
720
- Fixed a regression in Drupal 7.22 that caused internal server errors for
721
  sites running on very old Apache 1.x web servers.
722
- Numerous small bug fixes.
723
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
724
- Additional automated test coverage.
725

    
726
Drupal 7.22, 2013-04-03
727
-----------------------
728
- Allowed the drupal_http_request() function to be overridden so that
729
  additional HTTP request capabilities can be added by contributed modules.
730
- Changed the Simpletest module to allow PSR-0 test classes to be used in
731
  Drupal 7.
732
- Removed an unnecessary "Content-Disposition" header from private file
733
  downloads; it prevented many private files from being viewed inline in a web
734
  browser.
735
- Changed various field API functions to allow them to optionally act on a
736
  single field within an entity (API addition: http://drupal.org/node/1825844).
737
- Fixed a bug which prevented Drupal's file transfer functionality from working
738
  on some PHP 5.4 systems.
739
- Fixed incorrect log message when theme() is called for a theme hook that does
740
  not exist (minor string change).
741
- Fixed Drupal's token-replacement system to allow spaces in the token value.
742
- Changed the default behavior after a user creates a node they do not have
743
  access to view. The user will now be redirected to the front page rather than
744
  an access denied page.
745
- Fixed a bug which prevented empty HTTP headers (such as "0") from being set.
746
  (Minor behavior change: Callers of drupal_add_http_header() must now set
747
  FALSE explicitly to prevent a header from being sent at all; this was already
748
  indicated in the function's documentation.)
749
- Fixed OpenID errors when more than one module implements hook_openid(). The
750
  behavior is now changed so that if more than one module tries to set the same
751
  parameter, the last module's change takes effect.
752
- Fixed a serious documentation bug: The $name variable in the
753
  taxonomy-term.tpl.php theme template was incorrectly documented as being
754
  sanitized when in fact it is not.
755
- Fixed a bug which prevented Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrades on sites which had
756
  duplicate permission names in the User module's database tables.
757
- Added an empty "datatype" attribute to taxonomy term and username links to
758
  make the RDFa markup upward compatible with RDFa 1.1 (minor markup addition).
759
- Fixed a bug which caused the denial-of-service protection added in Drupal
760
  7.20 to break certain valid image URLs that had an extra slash in them.
761
- Fixed a bug with update queries in the SQLite database driver that prevented
762
  Drupal from being installed with SQLite on PHP 5.4.
763
- Fixed enforced dependencies errors updating to recent versions of Drupal 7 on
764
  certain non-MySQL databases.
765
- Refactored the Field module's caching behavior to obtain large improvements
766
  in memory usage for sites with many fields and instances (API addition:
767
  http://drupal.org/node/1915646).
768
- Fixed entity argument not being passed to implementations of
769
  hook_file_download_access_alter(). The fix adds an additional context
770
  parameter that can be passed when calling drupal_alter() for any hook (API
771
  change: http://drupal.org/node/1882722).
772
- Fixed broken support for translatable comment fields (API change:
773
  http://drupal.org/node/1874724).
774
- Added an assertThemeOutput() method to Simpletest to allow tests to check
775
  that themed output matches an expected HTML string (API addition).
776
- Added a link to "Install another module" after a module has been successfully
777
  downloaded via the Update Manager (UI change).
778
- Added an optional "exclusive" flag to installation profile .info files which
779
  allows Drupal distributions to force a profile to be selected during
780
  installation (API addition: http://drupal.org/node/1961012).
781
- Fixed a bug which caused the database API to not properly close database
782
  connections.
783
- Added a link to the URL for running cron from outside the site to the Cron
784
  settings page (UI change).
785
- Fixed a bug which prevented image styles from being reverted on PHP 5.4.
786
- Made the default .htaccess rules protocol sensitive to improve security for
787
  sites which use HTTPS and redirect between "www" and non-"www" versions of
788
  the page.
789
- Numerous small bug fixes.
790
- Numerous API documentation improvements.

813
  declaration.
814

817
  given an "error" class when the form fails validation.
818
- Prevented duplicate HTML IDs from appearing when two forms are displayed on
819
  the same page and one of them is submitted with invalid data (minor markup
820
  change).
821
- Fixed a bug which prevented Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrades on sites which had
822
  stale data in the Upload module's database tables.
823
- Fixed a bug in the States API which prevented certain types of form elements
824
  from being disabled when requested.
825
- Allowed aggregator feed items with author names longer than 255 characters to
826
  have a truncated version saved to the database (rather than causing a fatal
827
  error).
828
- Allowed aggregator feed items to have URLs longer than 255 characters
829
  (schema change which results in several columns in the Aggregator module's
830
  database tables changing from VARCHAR to TEXT fields).
831
- Added hook_taxonomy_term_view() and standardized the process for rendering
832
  taxonomy terms to invoke hook_entity_view() and otherwise make it consistent
833
  with other entities (API change: http://drupal.org/node/1808870).
834

837
  fail on PostgreSQL databases. This caused errors during the Drupal 6 to
838
  Drupal 7 upgrade.
839
- Changed the hook_menu() entry for Drupal's rss.xml page to prevent extra path
840
  components from being accidentally passed to the page callback function (data
841
  structure change).
842
- Removed a non-standard "name" attribute from Drupal's default Content-Type
843
  header for file downloads.

847
  multi-valued form fields (minor string change).

- Added support for 'weight' in hook_field_widget_info() to allow modules to
849
  control the order in which widgets are displayed in the Field UI.
850
- Updated various tables in the OpenID and Book modules to use the default
851
  "empty table" text pattern (string change).

854
- Fixed double occurrence of a "ul" HTML tag on secondary local tasks in the
855
  Seven theme (markup change).
856
- Fixed bugs which caused taxonomy vocabulary and shortcut set titles to be
857
  double-escaped. The fix replaces the taxonomy vocabulary overview page and
858
  "Edit shortcuts" menu items' title callback entries in hook_menu() with new
859
  functions that do not escape HTML characters (data structure change).
860
- Modified the Update manager module to allow drupal.org to collect usage
861
  statistics for individual modules and themes, rather than only for entire
862
  projects.
863
- Modified the node listing database query on Drupal's default front page to
864
  add table aliases for better query altering (this is a data structure change
865
  affecting code which implements hook_query_alter() on this query).
866
- Improved the translatability of the "Field type(s) in use" message on the
867
  modules page (admin-facing string change).
868
- Fixed a regression which caused a "call to undefined function
869
  drupal_find_base_themes()" fatal error under rare circumstances.
870
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
871
- Additional automated test coverage.
872

881
  expiration for user password reset links to be adjusted (API addition).
882
- Fixed database errors due to ambiguous column names that occurred when
883
  EntityFieldQuery was used in certain situations.
884
- Changed the drupal_array_get_nested_value() function to return a reference
885
  (API addition).
886
- Changed the System module's hook_block_info() implementation to assign the
887
  "Main page content" and "System help" blocks to appropriate regions by
888
  default and prevent error messages on the block administration page (data
889
  structure change).
890
- Fixed regression: Non-node entities couldn't be accessed with
891
  EntityFieldQuery.
892
- Fixed regression: Optional radio buttons with an empty, non-NULL default
893
  value led to an illegal choice error when none were selected.
894
- Reorganized the testing framework to split setUp() into specific sub-methods
895
  and fix several regressions in the process.
896
- Fixed bug which made it impossible to search for strings that have not been
897
  translated into a particular language.
898
- Renamed the "Field" column on the Manage Fields screen to "Field type", since
899
  the former was confusing and inaccurate (UI change).
900
- Performance improvement: Removed needless call to system_rebuild_module_data()
901
  in field_sync_field_status(), greatly speeding up bulk module enable/disable.
902
- Fixed bug which prevented notifications from being sent when core, module, and
903
  theme updates are available.

911
  correctly.
912

913
  language property in hook_entity_info(), and modules working with entities
914
  may access the language using entity_language() (API change:
915
  http://drupal.org/node/1626346).
916
- Added EntityFieldQuery support for taxonomy bundles.
917
- Fixed issue where field form structure was incomplete if field_access()
918
  returned FALSE. Instead of being incomplete, the form structure now has
919
  #access set to FALSE and field form validation is skipped (data structure
920
  change: http://drupal.org/node/1663020).
921
- Fixed data loss issue due to field_has_data() returning inconsistent results.
922
  The fix adds an optional DANGEROUS_ACCESS_CHECK_OPT_OUT tag to entity field
923
  queries which field storage engines can respond to (API addition:
924
  http://drupal.org/node/1597378).
925
- Fixed notice: Undefined index: default_image in image_field_prepare_view()
926
- Numerous API documentation improvements.
927

Drupal 7.0, 2011-01-05 
1155
----------------------
1156
- Database:
1157
    * Fully rewritten database layer utilizing PHP 5's PDO abstraction layer.
1158
    * Drupal now requires MySQL >= 5.0.15 or PostgreSQL >= 8.3.
1159
    * Added query builders for INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MERGE, and SELECT queries.
1160
    * Support for master/slave replication, transactions, multi-insert queries,
1161
      and other features.
1162
    * Added support for the SQLite database engine.
1163
    * Default to InnoDB engine, rather than MyISAM, on MySQL when available.
1164
      This offers increased scalability and data integrity.
1165
- Security:
1166
    * Protected cron.php -- cron will only run if the proper key is provided.
1167
    * Implemented a pluggable password system and much stronger password hashes
1168
      that are compatible with the Portable PHP password hashing framework.
1169
    * Rate limited login attempts to prevent brute-force password guessing, and
1170
      improved the flood control API to allow variable time windows and
1171
      identifiers for limiting user access to resources.
1172
    * Transformed the "Update status" module into the "Update manager" which
1173
      can securely install or update modules and themes via a web interface.
1174
- Usability:
1175
    * Added contextual links (a.k.a. local tasks) to page elements, such as
1176
      blocks, nodes, or comments, which allows to perform the most common tasks
1177
      with a single click only.
1178
    * Improved installer requirements check.
1179
    * Improved support for integration of WYSIWYG editors.
1180
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for input format listings.
1181
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for language listing.
1182
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for poll options.
1183
    * Provided descriptions and human-readable names for user permissions.
1184

1185
    * Removed display order settings for comment module. Comment display
1186
      order can now be customized using the Views module.
1187
    * Removed the 'related terms' feature from taxonomy module since this can
1188
      now be achieved with Field API.
1189
    * Added additional features to the default installation profile, and
1190
      implemented a "slimmed down" profile designed for developers.
1191
    * Added a built-in, automated cron run feature, which is triggered by site
1192
      visitors.
1193
    * Added an administrator role which is assigned all permissions for
1194
      installed modules automatically.
1195
    * Image toolkits are now provided by modules (rather than requiring a
1196
      manual file copy to the includes directory).
1197
    * Added an edit tab to taxonomy term pages.
1198
    * Redesigned password strength validator.
1199
    * Redesigned the add content type screen.
1200
    * Highlight duplicate URL aliases.
1201
    * Renamed "input formats" to "text formats".
1202
    * Moved text format permissions to the main permissions page.
1203
    * Added configurable ability for users to cancel their own accounts.
1204
    * Added "vertical tabs", a reusable interface component that features
1205
      automatic summaries and increases usability.
1206
    * Replaced fieldsets on node edit and add pages with vertical tabs.
1207
- Performance:
1208
    * Improved performance on uncached page views by loading multiple core
1209
      objects in a single database query.
1210
    * Improved performance for logged-in users by reducing queries for path
1211
      alias lookups.
1212
    * Improved support for HTTP proxies (including reverse proxies), allowing
1213
      anonymous page views to be served entirely from the proxy.
1214
- Documentation:
1215
    * Hook API documentation now included in Drupal core.
1216
- News aggregator:
1217
    * Added OPML import functionality for RSS feeds.
1218
    * Optionally, RSS feeds may be configured to not automatically generate feed blocks.
1219
- Search:
1220
    * Added support for language-aware searches.
1221
- Aggregator:
1222
    * Introduced architecture that allows pluggable parsers and processors for
1223
      syndicating RSS and Atom feeds.
1224
    * Added options to suspend updating specific feeds and never discard feeds
1225
      items.
1226
- Testing:
1227
    * Added test framework and tests.
1228
- Improved time zone support:
1229
    * Drupal now uses PHP's time zone database when rendering dates in local
1230
      time. Site-wide and user-configured time zone offsets have been converted
1231
      to time zone names, e.g. Africa/Abidjan.
1232
    * In some cases the upgrade and install scripts do not choose the preferred
1233
      site default time zone. The automatically-selected time zone can be
1234
      corrected at admin/config/regional/settings.
1235
    * If your site is being upgraded from Drupal 6 and you do not have the
1236
      contributed date or event modules installed, user time zone settings will
1237
      fallback to the system time zone and will have to be reconfigured by each user.
1238
    * User-configured time zones now serve as the default time zone for PHP
1239
      date/time functions.
1240
- Filter system:
1241
    * Revamped the filter API and text format storage.
1242
    * Added support for default text formats to be assigned on a per-role basis.
1243
    * Refactored the HTML corrector to take advantage of PHP 5 features.
1244
- User system:
1245
    * Added clean API functions for creating, loading, updating, and deleting
1246
      user roles and permissions.
1247
    * Refactored the "access rules" component of user module: The user module
1248
      now provides a simple interface for blocking single IP addresses. The
1249
      previous functionality in the user module for restricting certain e-mail
1250
      addresses and usernames is now available as a contributed module. Further,
1251
      IP address range blocking is no longer supported and should be implemented
1252
      at the operating system level.
1253
    * Removed per-user themes: Contributed modules with similar functionality
1254
      are available.
1255
- OpenID:
1256
    * Added support for Gmail and Google Apps for Domain identifiers. Users can
1257
      now login with their user@example.com identifier when example.com is powered
1258
      by Google.
1259
    * Made the OpenID module more pluggable.
1260
- Added code registry:
1261
    * Using the registry, modules declare their includable files via their .info file,
1262
      allowing Drupal to lazy-load classes and interfaces as needed.
1263
- Theme system:
1264
    * Removed the Bluemarine, Chameleon and Pushbutton themes. These themes live
1265
      on as contributed themes (http://drupal.org/project/bluemarine,
1266
      http://drupal.org/project/chameleon and http://drupal.org/project/pushbutton).
1267
    * Added Stark theme to make analyzing Drupal's default HTML and CSS easier.
1268
    * Added Seven as the default administration theme.
1269
    * Variable preprocessing of theme hooks prior to template rendering now goes
1270
      through two phases: a 'preprocess' phase and a new 'process' phase. See
1271
      http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
1272
    * Theme hooks implemented as functions (rather than as templates) can now
1273
      also have preprocess (and process) functions. See
1274
      http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
1275
    * Added Bartik as the default theme.
1276
- File handling:
1277
    * Files are now first class Drupal objects with file_load(), file_save(),
1278
      and file_validate() functions and corresponding hooks.
1279
    * The file_move(), file_copy() and file_delete() functions now operate on
1280
      file objects and invoke file hooks so that modules are notified and can
1281
      respond to changes.
1282
    * For the occasions when only basic file manipulation are needed--such as
1283
      uploading a site logo--that don't require the overhead of databases and
1284
      hooks, the current unmanaged copy, move and delete operations have been
1285
      preserved but renamed to file_unmanaged_*().
1286
    * Rewrote file handling to use PHP stream wrappers to enable support for
1287
      both public and private files and to support pluggable storage mechanisms
1288
      and access to remote resources (e.g. S3 storage or Flickr photos).
1289
    * The mime_extension_mapping variable has been removed. Modules that need to
1290
      alter the default MIME type extension mappings should implement
1291
      hook_file_mimetype_mapping_alter().
1292
    * Added the hook_file_url_alter() hook, which makes it possible to serve
1293
      files from a CDN.
1294
    * Added a field specifically for uploading files, previously provided by
1295
      the contributed module FileField.
1296
- Image handling:
1297
    * Improved image handling, including better support for add-on image
1298
      libraries.
1299
    * Added API and interface for creating advanced image thumbnails.
1300
    * Inclusion of additional effects such as rotate and desaturate.
1301
    * Added a field specifically for uploading images, previously provided by
1302
      the contributed module ImageField.
1303
- Added aliased multi-site support:
1304
    * Added support for mapping domain names to sites directories.
1305
- Added RDF support:
1306
    * Modules can declare RDF namespaces which are serialized in the <html> tag
1307
      for RDFa support.
1308
    * Modules can specify how their data structure maps to RDF.
1309
    * Added support for RDFa export of nodes, comments, terms, users, etc. and
1310
      their fields.
1311
- Search engine optimization and web linking:
1312
    * Added a rel="canonical" link on node and comment pages to prevent
1313
      duplicate content indexing by search engines.
1314
    * Added a default rel="shortlink" link on node and comment pages that
1315
      advertises a short link as an alternative URL to third-party services.
1316
    * Meta information is now alterable by all modules before rendering.
1317
- Field API:
1318
    * Custom data fields may be attached to nodes, users, comments and taxonomy
1319
      terms.
1320
    * Node bodies and teasers are now Field API fields instead of
1321
      being a hard-coded property of node objects.
1322
    * In addition, any other object type may register with Field API
1323
      and allow custom data fields to be attached to itself.
1324
    * Provides most of the features of the former Content Construction
1325
      Kit (CCK) module.
1326
    * Taxonomy terms are now Field API fields that can be added to any fieldable
1327
      object.
1328
- Installer:
1329
    * Refactored the installer into an API that allows Drupal to be installed
1330
      via a command line script.
1331
- Page organization
1332
    * Made the help text area a full featured region with blocks.
1333
    * Site mission is replaced with the highlighted content block region and
1334
      separate RSS feed description settings.
1335
    * The footer message setting was removed in favor of custom blocks.
1336
    * Made the main page content a block which can be moved and ordered
1337
      with other blocks in the same region.
1338
    * Blocks can now return structured arrays for later rendering just
1339
      like page callbacks.
1340
- Translation system
1341
    * The translation system now supports message context (msgctxt).
1342
    * Added support for translatable fields to Field API.
1343
- JavaScript changes
1344
    * Upgraded the core JavaScript library to jQuery version 1.4.4.
1345
    * Upgraded the jQuery Forms library to 2.52.
1346
    * Added jQuery UI 1.8.7, which allows improvements to Drupal's user
1347
      experience.
1348
- Better module version support
1349
    * Modules now can specify which version of another module they depend on.
1350
- Removed modules from core
1351
    * The following modules have been removed from core, because contributed
1352
      modules with similar functionality are available:
1353
      * Blog API module
1354
      * Ping module
1355
      * Throttle module
1356
- Improved node access control system.
1357
    * All modules may now influence the access to a node at runtime, not just
1358
      the module that defined a node.
1359
    * Users may now be allowed to bypass node access restrictions without giving
1360
      them complete access to the site.
1361
    * Access control affects both published and unpublished nodes.
1362
    * Numerous other improvements to the node access system.
1363
- Actions system
1364
    * Simplified definitions of actions and triggers.
1365
    * Removed dependency on the combination of hooks and operations. Triggers
1366
      now directly map to module hooks.
1367
- Task handling
1368
    * Added a queue API to process many or long-running tasks.
1369
    * Added queue API support to cron API.
1370
    * Added a locking framework to coordinate long-running operations across
1371
      requests.

1532
   * Expands the severity levels from 3 (Error, Warning, Notice) to the 8
1533
     levels defined in RFC 3164.
1534
   * The watchdog module is now called dblog, and is optional, but enabled by
1535
     default in the default installation profile.
1536
   * Extended the database log module so log messages can be filtered.
1537
   * Added syslog module: useful for monitoring large Drupal installations.
1538
- Added optional e-mail notifications when users are approved, blocked, or
1539
  deleted.
1540
- Drupal works with error reporting set to E_ALL.

1542
  to use Drupal as a framework to build command-line tools.
1543
- Made signature support optional and made it possible to theme signatures.
1544
- Made it possible to filter the URL aliases on the URL alias administration
1545

1556
- Moved "PHP input filter" to a standalone module so it can be deleted for
1557
  security reasons.
1558
- Usability:
1559
    * Improved handling of teasers in posts.
1560
    * Added sticky table headers.
1561
    * Check for clean URL support automatically with JavaScript.
1562
    * Removed default/settings.php. Instead the installer will create it from
1563
      default.settings.php.
1564
    * Made it possible to configure your own date formats.
1565
    * Remember anonymous comment posters.
1566
    * Only allow modules and themes to be enabled that have explicitly been
1567
      ported to the correct core API version.
1568
    * Can now specify the minimum PHP version required for a module within the
1569
      .info file.
1570
    * Drupal core no longer requires CREATE TEMPORARY TABLES or LOCK TABLES
1571
      database rights.
1572
    * Dynamically check password strength and confirmation.
1573
    * Refactored poll administration.
1574
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for blocks, menu items, taxonomy
1575
      vocabularies and terms, forums, profile fields, and input format filters.
1576
- Theme system:
1577
    * Added .info files to themes and made it easier to specify regions and
1578
      features.
1579
    * Added theme registry: modules can directly provide .tpl.php files for
1580

Drupal 2.0.0, 2001-03-15
2397
------------------------
2398
- Rewrote the comment/discussion code:
2399
    * Comment navigation should be less confusing now.
2400
    * Additional/alternative display and order methods have been added.
2401
    * Modules can be extended with a "comment system": modules can embed the existing comment system without having to write their own, duplicate comment system.
2402
- Added sections and section manager:
2403
    * Story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
2404
    * 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.
2405
- Multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
2406
    * You can set up multiple Drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.
2407
- Added "user ratings" similar to SlashCode's Karma or Scoop's Mojo:
2408
    * All rating logic is packed into a module to ease experimenting with different rating heuristics/algorithms.
2409
- Added "search infrastructure":
2410
    * Improved search page and integrated search functionality in the administration pages.
2411
- Added translation / localization / internationalization support:
2412
    * 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.
2413
- Added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
2414
    * 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.
2415
- Added FAQ module
2416
- Changed the "open submission queue" into a (optional) module.
2417
- Various updates:
2418
    * Improved account module:
2419
        + User accounts can be deleted.
2420
        + Added fine-grained permission support.
2421
    * Improved block module
2422
    * Improved diary module:
2423
        + Diary entries can be deleted
2424
    * Improved headline module:
2425
        + Improved parser to support more "generic" RDF/RSS/XML backend.
2426
    * Improved module module
2427
    * Improved watchdog module
2428
    * Improved database abstraction layer
2429
    * Improved themes:
2430
        + W3C validation on a best effort basis
2431
        + Added theme "example" (alias "Stone Age")
2432
    * Added new scripts to directory "scripts"
2433
    * Added directory "misc"
2434
    * Added CREDITS file
