Three neat new features in Drupal 7

Drupal 7 has been in development since February 2008, and it’s finally starting to head towards an actual release. It’s currently in a code freeze, which means they’re no longer adding new features, and instead concentrating on fixing bugs and polishing things up. After that, they should be ready to release!

In the mean time, we thought we’d take a look at the development version of Drupal 7 and highlight some of the new additions (keep in mind this version isn’t for production sites yet, and that some things are likely to change before release).

Going above and beyond "should" be normal

A couple of weeks ago I was in Peoria (Illinois) and looked for a local place to see if they could fix my exhaust problem. I called a local Midas shop and a guy named Chris answered and was able to help me determine the part I would need and told me to come in.

When I arrived I met the manger at the front desk and told him I was the one who just called. He said, “Oh yeah, Chris said you would be coming in.”

After waiting for a bit Chris came out and told me he could fix the problem. When the work was complete he showed me what he had done and made sure I was satisfied.
