Drupal5.3 & 6.0 Beta2 Released

Drupal官网这两天刚刚公布 5.3 & 4.7.8 版本,

“These are maintenance releases that fix problems reported using the bug tracking system, as well as some security vulnerabilities.”


Drupal6.0 Beta2 同时公布,离最终稳定版本不远了.^_^
从官方发行注记看,Beta2比Beta1没有增加新特性,只是修复了至今所有出现Bug,同时 :

“The most notable change is that we moved the long time favorite Drupal.module out of the Drupal package. It will instead be available as the contributed “Site network” module. This was done because Drupal 6 has a more secure and widely supported solution for distributed authentication in the form of the OpenID standard.”

So when does 6.0 get released?

“Drupal 6.0 will be released after (a) there are no more critical bugs and (b) we’ve had at least one release without adding any more to the list.

嗯.这种态度很严谨,不像国内的一些Web程序开发者,正式版出后还一天到晚放补丁,比如动网论坛(dvbbs)每个版本可以出到SP8,SP9,之间放出的安全更新不计其数,还有PW /DZ 也是一天到晚放出更新补丁.看看人家Drupal, 5.X.X迄今只有3个版本! (5.1, 5.2, 5.3)

When will that be? Well, it depends entirely on how many people chip in and help out! The more people help, the faster we can find and fix bugs, and the faster 6.0 gets released. The faster 6.0 gets released, the faster we can start adding new features to Drupal 7.0. So help out where you can, and let’s make this the best and most solid release of Drupal yet! :)”
