Drupal 6: status update

Filed under
Drupal

It's been a while since we provided a status update. And because not all of you are subscribed to the development mailing list or keep track of the issue queue, I figured a quick status update would be in order. Here is a list of some of the key features that already made it into the development version of Drupal and that will be part of the final Drupal 6 release:

1. Various theme system improvements: modules will be able to provide template files (.tpl.php) for their themes without having to create theme_ functions. In addition, Drupal will automatically pick up template files in the theme directories without having to write a single line of code. Just copy the template file from the module directory to your theme directory and start modifying your theme's copy. That's all you'll have to do.

2. Moved various internationalization features into core. Language setup screens are now separated from interface translation. It is also possible to have arbitrary path prefixes or domains set up for different languages. Posts can have languages associated with them. Multilingual websites have been a key focus for Drupal 6 and will continue to be for the remainder of the development cycle.

3. Improved logging functionality.

Full Story.

FOSS Events: LCA and systemd.conf

  • 5 great linux.conf.au talks (that aren't about Linux)
    linux.conf.au, otherwise known as LCA, is one of the world's longest-running open source events. LCA has been held in a different city around Australia and New Zealand almost every year since 1999. Despite the name, linux.conf.au is a generalist open source conference. LCA hasn't been just about Linux for a long time. Rather, the conference focuses on everything to do with open source: the software, hardware, and network protocols that underly it. LCA also has a strong track on free and open culture, exploring how open source interacts with science, government, and the law.
