After nearly three years of intense community collaboration by nearly a thousand contributors, Drupal 7.0 is today officially released and ready for download!
Drupal is dead, Long Live Drupal.
- CCK and Views now in core. Probably the most aclaimed feature of D7 this means that displaying website data is faster and easier than ever. Views let you dynamically tailor how the data is displayed.
- Better admin with a navigation bar. The admin interface is totally restructured to make it more logical and easier to use.
- Adding images to nodes is now built in. Image handling is great if you add in modules to handle it for you but with D7 its now built in. Terrific.
- Installation of modules and themes is now possible from within the admin pages. This is a huge time saver for web-admins like me.
- It Feels slicker. Well it just does.
