  17. 17. Theming Improvements Theme engine is improved More options: 42 different tpl files to override. RDF support is part of templates.
  18. 18. Built in RDF Resource Description Framework We all know what RDF is right? Right. “ RDF is a general method to decompose any type of knowledge into small pieces, with some rules about the semantics, or meaning, of those pieces. The point is to have a method so simple that it can express any fact, and yet so structured that computer applications can do useful things with it.” Drupal is the first major CMS to embrace RDF.
  19. 19. Simple Tests with Drupal Modeled after the Simple Test PHP library. Included in Drupal 7. Automated testing should help keep down bugs and improve the quality of contributed modules.
  20. 20. DBTNG Database The Next Generation Out of the box Master / Slave support PDO based DB layer Lots of Pressflow 6 features now in Core
  21. 21. Takeaways Focus on UI is apparent. Scalability and Performance architectural changes. D7 looks great, not the game changer I was expecting.
  22. 22. What spice does this need Besides presentation. I can add my own lolcats. What areas could this go deeper and what do you think is unnecessary to cover too much of?
