Drupal 7 Preview

Filed under
Drupal

There are approximately 38 critical issues that need to be resolved before Drupal 7 beta gets released. In this article by Trevor James we will install Drupal 7 alpha, test it out, and ultimately help to fix the critical issues and speed up the beta release.

Enhancements

With D7 installed what are the immediate noticeable enhancements? The overall look and feel of the administrative interface now uses overlay windows to present links to sections and content. Navigation in the admin interface now runs horizontally along the top of the site. Directly under the toolbar navigation is a shortcut link navigation. You can customize this by adding your own shortcuts pointing to various admin functionality.

In the toolbar, Content points to your content lists. Structure contains links to Blocks, Content types, Menus and Taxonomy. CCK is now built into Drupal 7 so you can create custom content types and manage custom fields without having to install modules

Libreboot Drama Continues, GNU Might Keep The Project

Both Richard Stallman and the FSF denounced these claims made by Libreboot maintainer Leah Rowe. Since then, no actual proof has been presented to back up these claims by the Libreboot maintainer but the drama around it has seemingly continued. Waking up this morning, I received an email as part of a long email chain from Leah Rowe about how the "GNU project refuses to let go of libreboot" and she wrote, "GNU project has told me that they will not allow libreboot to leave GNU. This is quite possibly the biggest insult imaginable, considering what has happened." Read more
