Millions of tiny blue aliens unleashed - Drupal 6 ALIVE!

Yesterday afternoon, I popped my head onto the Drupal IRC channels, and suddenly everything went a bit strange…

Somebody shouted, “Drupal 6 is out!” – and then the whole place erupted into hysterical blogging and Digg-ing (over 1000 now) and general chaos. Millions of tiny blue aliens are unleashed – Drupal 6 is ALIVE!

But the real story is obviously the news of the latest release of our favourite content management system-stroke-framework! Or should that be “community site building system” or “social publishing platform” or… well. That’s the great thing about Drupal, it can do pretty much anything! Expect it to be doing the washing-up for you by v7.

So what’s under the hoody? More features! Even better security! Massively improved language support! Performance streamlining! Usability enhancements up the wazoo! Just… loads of stuff. Loads.

Please Digg the story if you can, or for a clearer idea of what’s going on, check the official Drupal.org thread on the release here. As if it wasn’t crystal clear already…

Oh, and here is the official Drupal 6 press release. I quite like this doc – cos I helped write it! I wrote the intro text and title (with some help from Keith and final mods). That’s my fifteen nanoseconds of fame…
