Release notes

NOTE: The tagging got messed up and tags DRUPAL-5--1-7 and DRUPAL-5--1-8 are ambiguous as to their state. Releases for those tags should never be made and the proper upgrade sequence is DRUPAL-5--1-6 to DRUPAL-5--1-9.

ALSO NOTE: As I type this I realize that the "all_patches" patches haven't been updated to reflect the new node caching strategy, so they are to be avoided. I'll file an issue to track that it needs doing.

Issues addressed in this release:

  • Killing overengineered node caching (per role combination). This strategy caches based on keys of node/1, node/2, node/3 etc. for much greater simplicity and performance. Note that this MAY BREAK your site's behavior if you have nodes that appear differently for users in different roles. Please test thoroughly before deciding to use this version. Furthermore, since I've replaced all of the node_patch.patch files for all drupal versions, you should use your current version to revert the patch before updating your code base to this version.
