Drupal 7 nears release candidate stage

Filed under
Drupal

Drupal 7, the next major version of the popular open source content management system, could reach a release candidate stage as early as this week, the founder of the system said on Wednesday.

A release candidate is the last stage before a general release. All that needs to be cleared up are four critical bugs pertaining to visually impaired access, the interface and a potential security issue, said Drupal developer Dries Buytaert, in an interview at the ZendCon 2010 PHP conference in Santa Clara, Calif.

"We're trying to do the release candidate in the next week, maybe even on Friday of this week," Buytaert said. Compared to Drupal 6, Drupal 7 is easier to use and scales better on large sites, such as those getting 30 to 40 million page views per month.

The upgrade, however, might run slower than Drupal 6 if it is deployed onto a single server. Drupal is in use by such organizations as Best Buy, the White House, United Stations, and InfoWorld, noted Buytaert, who is CTO of Acquia.
