Transcript From Episode CMSW2009-09-21
After 82 weeks of development, Drupal 7 hit the goal: September 7 code freeze. The current phase is called code slush and will span 5 weeks.
During Code Slush, only patches with no new functionality will be accepted into the code stream, with a few exceptions. “Important and necessary” API changes are still allowed, as are improvements to usability, accessibility, performance, and documentation.
Drupal module developers, into overdrive testing custom code with the new base. The D7CX Movement (Drupal 7 Contributed Modules) is an initiative to have 40 modules upgraded and solid at release time. drupal.org has a list of the 40 popular modules in the D7CX Movement.
