Drupal 6.1: On Drupal Security

Just noting that I updated my Drupal 6 test site to 6.1 following the security release. The update was painless.

Thanks to Drupal 6’s new update functionality, the site itself checks to see if any updates to core or modules are necessary and let’s you know.

And if you think it’s problematic that 6.0 already had a security patch…I beg to differ: new “dot 0” releases of any software often have bugs, sometimes security related, and Drupal’s quick 6.1 release just demonstrates that Drupal in particular and open source projects in general are often quicker to identify and patch security bugs than proprietary development teams.

Go Drupal security team!

Here’s my first post about what I liked in Drupal 6.
