   3  -----------------------
   4  - Fixed security issues (denial of service). See SA-CORE-2013-002.
   5  
   6  Drupal 7.19, 2013-01-16
   7  -----------------------

  11  -----------------------
  12  - Fixed security issues (multiple vulnerabilities). See SA-CORE-2012-004.
  13  
  14  Drupal 7.17, 2012-11-07
  15  -----------------------
  16  - Changed the default value of the '404_fast_html' variable to have a DOCTYPE
  17    declaration.
  18  - Made it possible to use associative arrays for the 'items' variable in
  19    theme_item_list().
  20  - Fixed a bug which prevented required form elements without a title from being
  21    given an "error" class when the form fails validation.
  22  - Prevented duplicate HTML IDs from appearing when two forms are displayed on
  23    the same page and one of them is submitted with invalid data (minor markup
  24    change).
  25  - Fixed a bug which prevented Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 upgrades on sites which had
  26    stale data in the Upload module's database tables.
  27  - Fixed a bug in the States API which prevented certain types of form elements
  28    from being disabled when requested.
  29  - Allowed aggregator feed items with author names longer than 255 characters to
  30    have a truncated version saved to the database (rather than causing a fatal
  31    error).
  32  - Allowed aggregator feed items to have URLs longer than 255 characters
  33    (schema change which results in several columns in the Aggregator module's
  34    database tables changing from VARCHAR to TEXT fields).
  35  - Added hook_taxonomy_term_view() and standardized the process for rendering
  36    taxonomy terms to invoke hook_entity_view() and otherwise make it consistent
  37    with other entities (API change: http://drupal.org/node/1808870).
  38  - Added hook_entity_view_mode_alter() to allow modules to change entity view
  39    modes on display (API addition: http://drupal.org/node/1833086).
  40  - Fixed a bug which made database queries running a "LIKE" query on blob fields
  41    fail on PostgreSQL databases. This caused errors during the Drupal 6 to
  42    Drupal 7 upgrade.
  43  - Changed the hook_menu() entry for Drupal's rss.xml page to prevent extra path
  44    components from being accidentally passed to the page callback function (data
  45    structure change).
  46  - Removed a non-standard "name" attribute from Drupal's default Content-Type
  47    header for file downloads.
  48  - Fixed the theme settings form to properly clean up submitted values in
  49    $form_state['values'] when the form is submitted (data structure change).
  50  - Fixed an inconsistency by removing the colon from the end of the label on
  51    multi-valued form fields (minor string change).
  52  - Added support for 'weight' in hook_field_widget_info() to allow modules to
  53    control the order in which widgets are displayed in the Field UI.
  54  - Updated various tables in the OpenID and Book modules to use the default
  55    "empty table" text pattern (string change).
  56  - Added proxy server support to drupal_http_request().
  57  - Added "lang" attributes to language links, to better support screen readers.
  58  - Fixed double occurrence of a "ul" HTML tag on secondary local tasks in the
  59    Seven theme (markup change).
  60  - Fixed bugs which caused taxonomy vocabulary and shortcut set titles to be
  61    double-escaped. The fix replaces the taxonomy vocabulary overview page and
  62    "Edit shortcuts" menu items' title callback entries in hook_menu() with new
  63    functions that do not escape HTML characters (data structure change).
  64  - Modified the Update manager module to allow drupal.org to collect usage
  65    statistics for individual modules and themes, rather than only for entire
  66    projects.
  67  - Modified the node listing database query on Drupal's default front page to
  68    add table aliases for better query altering (this is a data structure change
  69    affecting code which implements hook_query_alter() on this query).
  70  - Improved the translatability of the "Field type(s) in use" message on the
  71    modules page (admin-facing string change).
  72  - Fixed a regression which caused a "call to undefined function
  73    drupal_find_base_themes()" fatal error under rare circumstances.
  74  - Numerous API documentation improvements.
  75  - Additional automated test coverage.
  76  
  77  Drupal 7.16, 2012-10-17
  78  -----------------------
  79  - Fixed security issues (Arbitrary PHP code execution and information
  80    disclosure). See SA-CORE-2012-003.
  81  
  82  Drupal 7.15, 2012-08-01
  83  -----------------------
  84  - Introduced a 'user_password_reset_timeout' variable to allow the 24-hour
  85    expiration for user password reset links to be adjusted (API addition).
  86  - Fixed database errors due to ambiguous column names that occurred when
  87    EntityFieldQuery was used in certain situations.
  88  - Changed the drupal_array_get_nested_value() function to return a reference
  89    (API addition).
  90  - Changed the System module's hook_block_info() implementation to assign the
  91    "Main page content" and "System help" blocks to appropriate regions by
  92    default and prevent error messages on the block administration page (data
  93    structure change).
  94  - Fixed regression: Non-node entities couldn't be accessed with
  95    EntityFieldQuery.
  96  - Fixed regression: Optional radio buttons with an empty, non-NULL default
  97    value led to an illegal choice error when none were selected.
  98  - Reorganized the testing framework to split setUp() into specific sub-methods
  99    and fix several regressions in the process.
 100  - Fixed bug which made it impossible to search for strings that have not been
 101    translated into a particular language.
 102  - Renamed the "Field" column on the Manage Fields screen to "Field type", since
 103    the former was confusing and inaccurate (UI change).
 104  - Performance improvement: Removed needless call to system_rebuild_module_data()
 105    in field_sync_field_status(), greatly speeding up bulk module enable/disable.
 106  - Fixed bug which prevented notifications from being sent when core, module, and
 107    theme updates are available.
 108  - Fixed bug which prevented sub-themes from inheriting the default values of
 109    theme settings defined by the base theme.

 114  - Fixed regression: The first plural index on a page was not calculated
 115    correctly.
 116  - Introduced generic entity language support. Entities may now declare their
 117    language property in hook_entity_info(), and modules working with entities
 118    may access the language using entity_language() (API change:
 119    http://drupal.org/node/1626346).
 120  - Added EntityFieldQuery support for taxonomy bundles.
 121  - Fixed issue where field form structure was incomplete if field_access()
 122    returned FALSE. Instead of being incomplete, the form structure now has
 123    #access set to FALSE and field form validation is skipped (data structure
 124    change: http://drupal.org/node/1663020).
 125  - Fixed data loss issue due to field_has_data() returning inconsistent results.
 126    The fix adds an optional DANGEROUS_ACCESS_CHECK_OPT_OUT tag to entity field
 127    queries which field storage engines can respond to (API addition:
 128    http://drupal.org/node/1597378).
 129  - Fixed notice: Undefined index: default_image in image_field_prepare_view()
 130  - Numerous API documentation improvements.
 131  - Additional automated test coverage.

 357  
 358  Drupal 7.0, 2011-01-05 
 359  ----------------------
 360  - Database:
 361      * Fully rewritten database layer utilizing PHP 5's PDO abstraction layer.
 362      * Drupal now requires MySQL >= 5.0.15 or PostgreSQL >= 8.3.
 363      * Added query builders for INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MERGE, and SELECT queries.
 364      * Support for master/slave replication, transactions, multi-insert queries,
 365        and other features.
 366      * Added support for the SQLite database engine.
 367      * Default to InnoDB engine, rather than MyISAM, on MySQL when available.
 368        This offers increased scalability and data integrity.
 369  - Security:
 370      * Protected cron.php -- cron will only run if the proper key is provided.
 371      * Implemented a pluggable password system and much stronger password hashes
 372        that are compatible with the Portable PHP password hashing framework.
 373      * Rate limited login attempts to prevent brute-force password guessing, and
 374        improved the flood control API to allow variable time windows and
 375        identifiers for limiting user access to resources.
 376      * Transformed the "Update status" module into the "Update manager" which
 377        can securely install or update modules and themes via a web interface.
 378  - Usability:
 379      * Added contextual links (a.k.a. local tasks) to page elements, such as
 380        blocks, nodes, or comments, which allows to perform the most common tasks
 381        with a single click only.
 382      * Improved installer requirements check.
 383      * Improved support for integration of WYSIWYG editors.
 384      * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for input format listings.
 385      * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for language listing.
 386      * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for poll options.
 387      * Provided descriptions and human-readable names for user permissions.
 388      * Removed comment controls for users.
 389      * Removed display order settings for comment module. Comment display
 390        order can now be customized using the Views module.
 391      * Removed the 'related terms' feature from taxonomy module since this can
 392        now be achieved with Field API.
 393      * Added additional features to the default installation profile, and
 394        implemented a "slimmed down" profile designed for developers.
 395      * Added a built-in, automated cron run feature, which is triggered by site
 396        visitors.
 397      * Added an administrator role which is assigned all permissions for
 398        installed modules automatically.
 399      * Image toolkits are now provided by modules (rather than requiring a
 400        manual file copy to the includes directory).
 401      * Added an edit tab to taxonomy term pages.
 402      * Redesigned password strength validator.
 403      * Redesigned the add content type screen.
 404      * Highlight duplicate URL aliases.
 405      * Renamed "input formats" to "text formats".
 406      * Moved text format permissions to the main permissions page.
 407      * Added configurable ability for users to cancel their own accounts.
 408      * Added "vertical tabs", a reusable interface component that features
 409        automatic summaries and increases usability.
 410      * Replaced fieldsets on node edit and add pages with vertical tabs.
 411  - Performance:
 412      * Improved performance on uncached page views by loading multiple core
 413        objects in a single database query.
 414      * Improved performance for logged-in users by reducing queries for path
 415        alias lookups.
 416      * Improved support for HTTP proxies (including reverse proxies), allowing
 417        anonymous page views to be served entirely from the proxy.
 418  - Documentation:
 419      * Hook API documentation now included in Drupal core.
 420  - News aggregator:
 421      * Added OPML import functionality for RSS feeds.
 422      * Optionally, RSS feeds may be configured to not automatically generate feed blocks.
 423  - Search:
 424      * Added support for language-aware searches.
 425  - Aggregator:
 426      * Introduced architecture that allows pluggable parsers and processors for
 427        syndicating RSS and Atom feeds.
 428      * Added options to suspend updating specific feeds and never discard feeds
 429        items.
 430  - Testing:
 431      * Added test framework and tests.
 432  - Improved time zone support:
 433      * Drupal now uses PHP's time zone database when rendering dates in local
 434        time. Site-wide and user-configured time zone offsets have been converted
 435        to time zone names, e.g. Africa/Abidjan.
 436      * In some cases the upgrade and install scripts do not choose the preferred
 437        site default time zone. The automatically-selected time zone can be
 438        corrected at admin/config/regional/settings.
 439      * If your site is being upgraded from Drupal 6 and you do not have the
 440        contributed date or event modules installed, user time zone settings will
 441        fallback to the system time zone and will have to be reconfigured by each user.
 442      * User-configured time zones now serve as the default time zone for PHP
 443        date/time functions.
 444  - Filter system:
 445      * Revamped the filter API and text format storage.
 446      * Added support for default text formats to be assigned on a per-role basis.
 447      * Refactored the HTML corrector to take advantage of PHP 5 features.
 448  - User system:
 449      * Added clean API functions for creating, loading, updating, and deleting
 450        user roles and permissions.
 451      * Refactored the "access rules" component of user module: The user module
 452        now provides a simple interface for blocking single IP addresses. The
 453        previous functionality in the user module for restricting certain e-mail
 454        addresses and usernames is now available as a contributed module. Further,
 455        IP address range blocking is no longer supported and should be implemented
 456        at the operating system level.
 457      * Removed per-user themes: Contributed modules with similar functionality
 458        are available.
 459  - OpenID:
 460      * Added support for Gmail and Google Apps for Domain identifiers. Users can
 461        now login with their user@example.com identifier when example.com is powered
 462        by Google.
 463      * Made the OpenID module more pluggable.
 464  - Added code registry:
 465      * Using the registry, modules declare their includable files via their .info file,
 466        allowing Drupal to lazy-load classes and interfaces as needed.
 467  - Theme system:
 468      * Removed the Bluemarine, Chameleon and Pushbutton themes. These themes live
 469        on as contributed themes (http://drupal.org/project/bluemarine,
 470        http://drupal.org/project/chameleon and http://drupal.org/project/pushbutton).
 471      * Added Stark theme to make analyzing Drupal's default HTML and CSS easier.
 472      * Added Seven as the default administration theme.
 473      * Variable preprocessing of theme hooks prior to template rendering now goes
 474        through two phases: a 'preprocess' phase and a new 'process' phase. See
 475        http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
 476      * Theme hooks implemented as functions (rather than as templates) can now
 477        also have preprocess (and process) functions. See
 478        http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
 479      * Added Bartik as the default theme.
 480  - File handling:
 481      * Files are now first class Drupal objects with file_load(), file_save(),
 482        and file_validate() functions and corresponding hooks.
 483      * The file_move(), file_copy() and file_delete() functions now operate on
 484        file objects and invoke file hooks so that modules are notified and can
 485        respond to changes.
 486      * For the occasions when only basic file manipulation are needed--such as
 487        uploading a site logo--that don't require the overhead of databases and
 488        hooks, the current unmanaged copy, move and delete operations have been
 489        preserved but renamed to file_unmanaged_*().
 490      * Rewrote file handling to use PHP stream wrappers to enable support for
 491        both public and private files and to support pluggable storage mechanisms
 492        and access to remote resources (e.g. S3 storage or Flickr photos).
 493      * The mime_extension_mapping variable has been removed. Modules that need to
 494        alter the default MIME type extension mappings should implement
 495        hook_file_mimetype_mapping_alter().
 496      * Added the hook_file_url_alter() hook, which makes it possible to serve
 497        files from a CDN.
 498      * Added a field specifically for uploading files, previously provided by
 499        the contributed module FileField.
 500  - Image handling:
 501      * Improved image handling, including better support for add-on image
 502        libraries.
 503      * Added API and interface for creating advanced image thumbnails.
 504      * Inclusion of additional effects such as rotate and desaturate.
 505      * Added a field specifically for uploading images, previously provided by
 506        the contributed module ImageField.
 507  - Added aliased multi-site support:
 508      * Added support for mapping domain names to sites directories.
 509  - Added RDF support:
 510      * Modules can declare RDF namespaces which are serialized in the <html> tag
 511        for RDFa support.
 512      * Modules can specify how their data structure maps to RDF.
 513      * Added support for RDFa export of nodes, comments, terms, users, etc. and
 514        their fields.
 515  - Search engine optimization and web linking:
 516      * Added a rel="canonical" link on node and comment pages to prevent
 517        duplicate content indexing by search engines.
 518      * Added a default rel="shortlink" link on node and comment pages that
 519        advertises a short link as an alternative URL to third-party services.
 520      * Meta information is now alterable by all modules before rendering.
 521  - Field API:
 522      * Custom data fields may be attached to nodes, users, comments and taxonomy
 523        terms.
 524      * Node bodies and teasers are now Field API fields instead of
 525        being a hard-coded property of node objects.
 526      * In addition, any other object type may register with Field API
 527        and allow custom data fields to be attached to itself.
 528      * Provides most of the features of the former Content Construction
 529        Kit (CCK) module.
 530      * Taxonomy terms are now Field API fields that can be added to any fieldable
 531        object.
 532  - Installer:
 533      * Refactored the installer into an API that allows Drupal to be installed
 534        via a command line script.
 535  - Page organization
 536      * Made the help text area a full featured region with blocks.
 537      * Site mission is replaced with the highlighted content block region and
 538        separate RSS feed description settings.
 539      * The footer message setting was removed in favor of custom blocks.
 540      * Made the main page content a block which can be moved and ordered
 541        with other blocks in the same region.
 542      * Blocks can now return structured arrays for later rendering just
 543        like page callbacks.
 544  - Translation system
 545      * The translation system now supports message context (msgctxt).
 546      * Added support for translatable fields to Field API.
 547  - JavaScript changes
 548      * Upgraded the core JavaScript library to jQuery version 1.4.4.
 549      * Upgraded the jQuery Forms library to 2.52.
 550      * Added jQuery UI 1.8.7, which allows improvements to Drupal's user
 551        experience.
 552  - Better module version support
 553      * Modules now can specify which version of another module they depend on.
 554  - Removed modules from core
 555      * The following modules have been removed from core, because contributed
 556        modules with similar functionality are available:
 557        * Blog API module
 558        * Ping module
 559        * Throttle module
 560  - Improved node access control system.
 561      * All modules may now influence the access to a node at runtime, not just
 562        the module that defined a node.
 563      * Users may now be allowed to bypass node access restrictions without giving
 564        them complete access to the site.
 565      * Access control affects both published and unpublished nodes.
 566      * Numerous other improvements to the node access system.
 567  - Actions system
 568      * Simplified definitions of actions and triggers.
 569      * Removed dependency on the combination of hooks and operations. Triggers
 570        now directly map to module hooks.
 571  - Task handling
 572      * Added a queue API to process many or long-running tasks.
 573      * Added queue API support to cron API.
 574      * Added a locking framework to coordinate long-running operations across
 575        requests.

 764      * Added sticky table headers.
 765      * Check for clean URL support automatically with JavaScript.
 766      * Removed default/settings.php. Instead the installer will create it from
 767        default.settings.php.
 768      * Made it possible to configure your own date formats.
 769      * Remember anonymous comment posters.
 770      * Only allow modules and themes to be enabled that have explicitly been

 772      * Can now specify the minimum PHP version required for a module within the
 773        .info file.

 781      * Added .info files to themes and made it easier to specify regions and
 782        features.
 783      * Added theme registry: modules can directly provide .tpl.php files for
 784        their themes without having to create theme_ functions.
 785      * Used the Garland theme for the installation and maintenance pages.
 786      * Added theme preprocess functions for themes that are templates.
 787      * Added support for themeable functions in JavaScript.
 788  - Refactored update.php to a generic batch API to be able to run time-consuming
 789    operations in multiple subsequent HTTP requests.

 797      * Tags are now automatically closed at the end of the teaser.
 798  - Performance:
 799      * Made it easier to conditionally load .include files and split up many core
 800        modules.
 801      * Added a JavaScript aggregator.
 802      * Added block-level caching, improving performance for both authenticated
 803        and anonymous users.
 804      * Made Drupal work correctly when running behind a reverse proxy like
 805        Squid or Pound.
 806  - File handling improvements:
 807      * Entries in the files table are now keyed to a user instead of a node.
 808      * Added reusable validation functions to check for uploaded file sizes,
 809        extensions, and image resolution.
 810      * Added ability to create and remove temporary files during a cron job.
 811  - Forum improvements:
 812      * Any node type may now be posted in a forum.
 813  - Taxonomy improvements:
 814      * Descriptions for terms are now shown on taxonomy/term pages as well
 815        as RSS feeds.
 816      * Added versioning support to categories by associating them with node
 817        revisions.
 818  - Added support for OpenID.
 819  - Added support for triggering configurable actions.
 820  - Added the Update status module to automatically check for available updates
 821    and warn sites if they are missing security updates or newer versions.
 822    Sites deploying from CVS should use http://drupal.org/project/cvs_deploy.
 823    Advanced settings provided by http://drupal.org/project/update_advanced.
 824  - Upgraded the core JavaScript library to jQuery version 1.2.3.
 825  - Added a new Schema API, which provides built-in support for core and
 826    contributed modules to work with databases other than MySQL.
 827  - Removed drupal.module. The functionality lives on as the Site network
 828    contributed module (http://drupal.org/project/site_network).
 829  - Removed old system updates. Updates from Drupal versions prior to 5.x will
 830    require upgrading to 5.x before upgrading to 6.x.

1553  - Added caching support which makes Drupal extremely scalable.

1580      * Made the administration section only show those links a user has access to.
1581      * Made all modules use specific form_* functions to guarantee a rock-solid forms and more consistent layout.

1603      * Comment navigation should be less confusing now.
1604      * Additional/alternative display and order methods have been added.
1605      * Modules can be extended with a "comment system": modules can embed the existing comment system without having to write their own, duplicate comment system.
1606  - Added sections and section manager:
1607      * Story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
1608      * Story sections make the open submission more adaptive in that you can set individual post, dump and expiration thresholds for each section according to the story type and urgency level: stories in certain sections do not "expire" and might stay interesting and active as time passes by, whereas news-related stories are only considered "hot" over a short period of time.
1609  - Multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
1610      * You can set up multiple Drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.
1611  - Added "user ratings" similar to SlashCode's Karma or Scoop's Mojo:
1612      * All rating logic is packed into a module to ease experimenting with different rating heuristics/algorithms.
1613  - Added "search infrastructure":
1614      * Improved search page and integrated search functionality in the administration pages.
1615  - Added translation / localization / internationalization support:
1616      * Because many people would love to see their website showing a lot less of English, and far more of their own language, Drupal provides a framework to set up a multi-lingual website or to overwrite the default English text in English.
1617  - Added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
1618      * Users can be granted access to specific administration sections. Example: a FAQ maintainer can be given access to maintain the FAQ and translators can be given access to the translation pages.
1619  - Added FAQ module
1620  - Changed the "open submission queue" into a (optional) module.
1621  - Various updates:
1622      * Improved account module:

1624          + Added fine-grained permission support.
1625      * Improved block module

1632      * Improved database abstraction layer
1633      * Improved themes:

1635          + Added theme "example" (alias "Stone Age")
1636      * Added new scripts to directory "scripts"
1637      * Added directory "misc"
