Welcome to Spring! Welcome to warmer days, green grass, BBQ season, days at the beach, picnics and Drupal 4.7. Yup, that's right Drupal 4.7. Now, before you go scouring for a link to the tarballs, let me warn you, there are none, yet. (for those of you on the opposite side of the globe, who will soon be up to your ears in snow, we sympathize, we're just beginning to feel our ears again up here :) ).
Thanks to the feverish work of many Drupal developers Drupal 4.7 should be released shortly, and all the hyped-about features, the AJAX, the better caching; all that Drupalistic goodness, will be yours.
In the Dev Zone of this issue (yeah, we changed section names again...) Karoly (aka. chx) has outlined his list of the top new developers who made this release possible, but this is no where near a complete list. On behalf of the Drupal community we thank every person who gave a line of code or a good suggestion, filed a bug report or said a kind word to the developers. Without you, well, there probably wouldn't be a 4.7.
I'd also like to thank all those that responded to the Drupal.org frontpage post asking for articles and personal experiences; thanks to the great response we have enough articles to begin on our next issue as well! As always, we still want to hear from you. Drop us a line at the official contact form. Read on for the complete Drupal Newsletter!
