Provides soft-deletion/trash bin functionality for Drupal. Content is "killfiled" instead of deleted outright, and can be retained for a configurable span of time before being permanently purged. All this is opaque to end-users as all killfiled content is pervasively hidden from them, but administrators can access and restore killfiled content when necessary.

An index of recently killfiled content is also made available as an RSS feed at killfile.rdf (this functionality requires the RDF module), allowing content deletions to be propagated from one Drupal instance to another that subscribes to its content (requires FeedAPI on the subscribing side in order to process the content deletions). This particular functionality is intended for use cases such as multi-instance scenarios based on the publish/subscribe architectural model.

This module requires PHP 5.2 or newer, and will integrate with the Views, FeedAPI, and RDF modules if installed.

This project is currently being developed by Kevin Day, having originally been developed by Arto Bendiken, Dan Karran and Miglius Alaburda. Development has previously been in part sponsored by OpenBand and MakaluMedia.
