Release focus: initial release


  • drupal6 includes a built-in update status module.
    • when enabled could produce confusing/annoying version notifications.
    • this is due to drupal6 being installed and updated via the apt package manager, instead of manually from the upstream tarball.
    • it is recommended to subscribe to drupal security announcements (email and rss are provided).
  • this release includes all updates included in the 2008.10.17-hardy-x86 releases, such as the new configuration console, and web management interface.
