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."

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
