Drupal's Milestone Week

Filed under
Drupal

What do NASA, MTV, Tim Berners Lee and Mozilla all have in common? They use the open source Drupal content management system (CMS).

The Drupal project celebrates two major milestones this week: the release of Drupal 5.0 and the sixth anniversary of the project. It's a long way away from the project's humble beginning in founder Dries Buytaert's dorm room.

Drupal 5 introduces a long list of improvements to the venerable open source CMS, including retooled administration pages, a Web-based installer, more logging reports and performance improvements.

Buytaert told internetnews.com that for him the most exciting new things about Drupal 5 are the many usability and user interface improvements that make for a better experience.

Buytaert isn't sure yet what new features will make it in the next Drupal release. That's not to say that he doesn't have a plan.

"With Drupal 5, we focused a lot on improving the user experience," Buytaert explained. "For Drupal 6, I'd like to focus on making Drupal easier to develop and theme for."

Review: Scientific Linux 7.0 GNOME

It has been a while since I have done a review (almost 3 months, in fact). It has been significantly longer since I have looked at Scientific Linux (over 3 years, in fact). Given that, I figured it might be worthwhile to make this review about Scientific Linux 7.0. I'm just glad that I did it before the time elapsed for something else to come up (around 3 minutes, in fact — OK, I just made that one up to match the other statements). Read more
