Drupal 7 released.

Following the first beta site in October 2010, Drupal 7 was officially launched on the 5th of January of this year. One of the main benefits of this version is the improved ease of editing for the administrator and is progressively faster and more responsive for the end user with optimised CSS and JavaScript, better caching and more.

New features include:

  • Flexible content - Define custom fields that can be used across content types, users, comments, terms and other entities. Store the data for these fields in SQL, NoSQL, or use remote storage.
  • Better theming - Control exactly what gets shown where on the screen with the new Render API and some truly radical alter hooks. The new RDF module provides semantic web markup.
  • Accessible - Administration screens are now far more accessible. Many front-end improvements make it easier for you to build highly accessible websites.
  •  Images and files - Adding images to content is now built in. Generate different versions for thumbnails, previews and other image styles. Private file handling can now be used alongside public files.
