This is replacement for the Drupal archive.module which was available in Drupal core in Drupal 4.7.x and previous versions. Drupal 5/6 will no longer receive improved features. All new features will be developed for 7.x only.
- Simple calendar block that displays current month and links to archive pages for days with posts
- Allows sorting all nodes by date and node type
Roadmap for version 7.x-2.0:
Proper integration with Views for the different archive pages.
- Weekly archive module: http://drupal.org/project/week
- Views module (much more general): http://drupal.org/project/views
