Thus, no critical bug should be expected, thereby making this release worthy of known. In this release, it comes with several new features, including a web-based install system, improved administration tools, and a totally shiny new theme.

Drupal is an open source content management software, equipped with a powerful blend of features. Supporting a large variety of ranging from personal weblogs to podcast sites and community driven sites, Drupal has also been used to serve large media sites.

Underneath this latest version 5 of Drupal includes lots of improvements, such as the inclusion of jQuery Javascript Library, node access system improvement (ACL), Form API improvement, and even more.
