The features module enables the capture and management of features in Drupal. A feature is a collection of Drupal entities which taken together satisfy a certain use-case. Features provides a UI and API for taking different site building components from modules with exportables and bundling them together in a single feature module. A feature module is like any other Drupal module except that it declares its components (e.g. views, contexts, CCK fields, etc.) in its .info file so that it can be checked, updated, or reverted programmatically. Examples of features might be: A blogA pressroomAn image galleryAn e-commerce t-shirt store Compatibility Issues The 7.x-2.x version The 2.x branch greatly changes (and hopefully improves) the user interface of the Create/Recreate Features screen. Ability to write your feature export directly to the Drupal file system (like drush fu).Ability to remove auto-detected items from your export.Ability to work with conflicting features.

Migrate | The migrate module provides a flexible framework for migrating content into Drupal from other sources (e.g., when converting a web site from another CMS to Drupal). Out-of-the-box, support for creating core Drupal objects such as nodes, users, files, terms, and comments are included - it can easily be extended for migrating other kinds of content. Content is imported and rolled back using a bundled web interface (Migrate UI module) or included Drush commands (strongly recommended). Status I'm afraid I've been very busy with project work and the Migrate in 8 effort and haven't been able to put Migrate 2.6 to bed yet. Migrate 2.6 Release Candidate 1 is available. The most significant changes in Migrate 2.6: For a more complete list of changes, see the issues tagged as Migrate 2.6. Besides the UI changes, there are significant changes around migration registration and construction that are somewhat risky - before upgrading to the latest -dev or git code, be sure you backup your database.

CMIS API The CMIS API project aims to provide a generic API for integrating with CMIS compliant Enterprise CMS (ECM) systems. This is a joint effort between Optaros, Acquia, and Alfresco. What This Module Package Does The CMIS API package of modules primarily provides an API for connecting to CMIS compliant systems to bi-directionally synchronize content between the CMIS ECM system and Drupal. While this module does provide interfaces and functionality out of the box, most developers doing advanced integrations will want to create custom modules that invoke the included API for custom authentication, sync, content type extension, etc. What's Included The CMIS Module Package includes the following modules: Dependencies (7.x-2.x) The 7.x-2.x branch no longer has the PHP CMIS Library included in the distribution, it's loaded using the Libraries API module, please download from Apache Chemistry When to Use This Module Resources Getting Started with CMIS - Credits

Alfresco 4 & Drupal 7 with CMIS API + CMIS Views Calendar | Requires Views and the Date API (packaged with the Date module). This module will display any Views date field in calendar formats, including CCK date fields, node created or updated dates, etc. Switch between year, month, and day views. See also Date iCal, a project that contains code and features needed to either import or export dates using iCal feeds. Be sure to read Debugging Information before reporting a problem.

References This project provides D7 versions of the 'node_reference' and 'user_reference' field types, that were part of the CCK package in D6, at functional parity with the D6 counterparts. See for details. Note for users upgrading from References 7.x-2.0-beta3 There were a couple changes in the way 'References' views are handled ("referenceable nodes/users defined by a view"), which might require double-checking those existing on your site: The 'label' (node title or user name) is no longer automatically added if not included in the view. If some of your 'References' views currently do not include it, you might want to add it explicitly, else it will no longer appear in the widgets.The HTML generated by the view is no longer stripped out before being handed to "checkboxes / radios" widgets, thus allowing advanced formatting. Note for users upgrading from CCK D6 Similar modules:
