Release notes

This is the first alpha release of the Chaos Tool Suite for Drupal 7.

The bulk of this porting work was done at a sprint sponsored by Chapter Three, iO1, and Commerce Guys at the Commerce Guys facility in San Francisco, California, in September. Because we did not complete our agenda during the sprint, we continued to work as best we could for the next few weeks in a git repository.

For module developers relying on Chaos Tools for their modules, please read the UPGRADE.txt file to see what changes need to be made to get your code working with CTools. This is in addition to any changes requires by Drupal core, which are extensive.

While this release has completed the porting of all major functionality, many minor bits of functionality have not been ported. This list includes, but is not limited to the following items:

  • Most content types have not been tested. In particular, content types and contexts related to CCK and taxonomy or anything else that has been superceded by the new field API almost certainly will be broken.
  • The option to disable Drupal regions when displaying a page does not yet work.
  • Block content types are miscategorized. We have not yet updated the categorization of blocks.

Additionally, we actually significantly changed the plugin UI for context and relationship plugins. These changes also need to be made to access, argument and style plugins, but they have not yet been made. Any plugins you port forward from D6 will probably need to be upgraded a second time once these changes are in place.
