Wiki module

I wrote a wiki module for version 3.0 (it was working but still needed some more development) and am wondering if it is worth updating it to 4.1 I stoped development mainly because I dont have a wesite to host a site on and because I found that drupal was still a little primative so I thought I might wait for further development before continuing. I would like to know if anyone else would like a wiki module. Also there are basically 2 options, either create a new node type (this is what I did basing it off the colaborative book) or create a filter type module (similar to smilies etc) and I would like to know if anyone has any preferences.

Drupal and RSD

Drupal supports RSD (Really Simple Discoverability) by means of the rsd.module, which can be found in the contributions repository.

Really Simple Discovery is a way to help client software find the services needed to read, edit, or "work with" server/weblogging software.

Collaborative Filtering and Drupal

The new Recommendation Module for Drupal is a "collaborative filtering" engine. This means that the module predicts interesting nodes, according to your personal tastes.

The innovative principle is based on "automated user-based collaborative filtering". Check, for example, Amazon.com's "Customers who bought this book also..." or the MovieLens university research project.

Think of it as a "word-of-mouth" system, where friends would recommend you interesting nodes.

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
