Drupal looks beyond open source zealots

Filed under
Drupal

Every few years, Drupal violates done of the industry's most sacred rules: don't break your APIs.

The next version of the popular open source content management system – Drupal 7 – will do just that. And more. It will offer a redesigned user interface that targets – gasp! – non-technical users. It will hide features that devs know and love.
