Release notes

This is BETA2 of ACL for Drupal 7.

There have been no bug reports since BETA1; BETA2 provides some API enhancements. We do not recommend installing it on a production site yet, but we encourage you to test it and provide feedback (both good and bad!) in the issues queue. See #690618: ACL for D7 for details.

Changes since BETA1:
- Streamline code (no functional change).
- Add acl_get_ids_by_user() API.
- Add support for ACLs with name /and number/.

Note: The devel_node_access (DNA) module, which is part of the Devel module, provides an in-depth view into the inner workings of node access, especially if you enable its debug mode at admin/config/development/devel#edit-devel-node-access-debug-mode and its second block. This is a big help for understanding the forces that control access to any given node.

Warning: There is a bug in this version of ACL that causes ACL to fail when used with the FlexiAccess module. Use the development snapshot instead until BETA3 becomes available. See #1024114: Fatal error in function acl_get_id_by_name for details.
