Drupal 4.1.0 release candidate

After six months of development Drupal 4.1.0 is now ready for some final testing. Drupal is currently in a feature freeze, and has been for quite some time, to make sure nothing breaks before the final 4.1.0 release.

If you have a Drupal site and you want to help testing, consider upgrading now. Anyone who doesn't have an old site and wants to help out can of course setup a Drupal site from scratch. All feedback is appreciated, good or bad.

Migrating Movable Type to Drupal

Three cheers to Michael who just migrated out of Movable Type and into Drupal Hip Hip Hooray Here's his blog: Michael and here's where I write about it on my blog.

Not only did Michael do an outstanding job on the content migration but his Drupal blog has a great theme -- it really looks like a lovely blog page and not like every other Drupal site. He also did a nice job of implementing Drupal Image Gallery

If You Do PHP (And We All Do)

Hi there,

PHP Journal, www.phpj.com, is looking for announcements. Here's the call for announcements. I think we should definitely have something Druaplish in this 1st issue or the 2nd. Thoughts ?

Call for PHP Input

PHP Journal is a new, quarterly technical publication focused on all things PHP. The first issue of PHPJ is scheduled for publication in January 2003, and features a great line-up of columns (that will appear in every issue) and feature stories, all written by experienced PHP developers and authors. If you want to know more about the content of the journal, check our Web site (http://www.phpj.com), which is just starting to take shape. Watch for subscription information between now and January.

One of the regular columns in PHPJ is called "Out in the Open," and it's dedicated to getting PHP community news out to the ommunity. For example, do you run a PHP user group and want to invite others to attend? Are you writing a book about PHP, or are you already published? Have you release a new PEAR module or PHP application that you'd like to share with others? If it's about PHP, we want to hear about it.

If you'd like your announcement to appear in "Out in the Open", please send your announcement in the the following format to phpjed @ phpj.com:

Title (what are you announcing)

Drupal.org update (2)

You might have noticed our website has been redesigned and reorganized, mostly to address the needs of first-time visitors interested in Drupal. This marks the second step (first step here) of an ongoing effort to streamline Drupal.org.
