Like the title says, Drupal 4.4.0 has been released. Lots of new features and improvements in the areas of usability and accessibility. See the announcement for full details.
I’m eager to upgrade, but I’ve encountered some problems with the current polytechnic theme. It’s based on an old 4.2 theme called stylebox by Curtis Nelson, and the improvements to Drupal in the theme system don’t play too well with my current setup (ie: it’s borked).
I’ve been meaning to update the theme to the xtemplate system (specifically a variant on Pushbutton) so I’m holding off on the upgrade until I can get that sorted out.
In related news the Drupal 4.5 battle plan is worth a read. ACLs and improved image handling… woo!
