    Fields API
    Scalability

    `
  • 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
