The developers of open source CMS Drupal have released version 6.0 on Thursday. This new version provides improvements in security and usability. A new "update status module" tells you when new security fixes come out, and role-based access control has been refined. Drupal 6.0 now supports OpenID authentication out of the box; an expansion module is no longer required.

The new installer takes a user through the Drupal installation in a few steps. Language packages can be imported, so you can run the system from the start in the language of your choice. In Version 6.0, many operations can be performed with Drag & Drop, e.g. arranging the menus and uploading files. In addition, the new version provides operations that enable a user without programming knowledge to define automatic reactions to events on the page, e.g. sending a notification E-mail when a visitor comments on an article.

The release notes give a list of the main innovations as well as links to screencasts demonstrating the new features.
