    • To Sum Up
      Almost completely new user experience across the UI.
      Improved functionality to make building your site and publishing content easier.

    • Under The Hood
      Fields API
      Scalability
      Theme engine
      Simple Tests
      RDF
      `
    • Fields API
      Replaces CCK
      Fields on everything
      Full customization for content, users, taxonomy
      Pluggable Field API
      Draw field data from external sources
      Everything is now an entity
      Entities are made up of fields
      Fields are reusable across entities
      `
    • Fields API
      Could be its own presentation.
      Wait it is! Great presentation from Drupalcon Copenhagen http://www.slideshare.net/cyberswat/drupalcon-cph

    • Scalability
      “Drupal 7 is also the most scalable release to date, with features such as built-in proxy server support, advanced caching techniques, and Content Delivery Network support for static files.”
      `
    • Content Delivery Networks
      Content is deliverable via the closest possible network.
      Improves page loading times
      `
    • Database Replication Support
      Database Replication
      Copy of your main database distributed to additional database servers
      Time consuming queries can then be relegated to your replicated database, allowing the main server to continue to serve requests quickly
      `
    • Theme Engine Improvements
      42 .tpl files that can be overriden
      Theme control all the way down to the field level.
      Field.tpl.php
      RDF integration at the theme level
      Requires additional markup and theme work
      `
    • Simple Tests
      Simple Test PHP library
      Built into Drupal 7 as the Testing Module
      Allows Automated Testing
      Improve quality
      Learning curve for writing tests
      `
    • RDF
      Resource Description Framework
      Machine readable metadata about your content
      Describes Drupal entities and their relationships
      Built in to D7 Core
