Drupal, a Blog CMS like WordPress has released after 8 months, on its 6th birthday, Drupal 5.0.
Drupal in general differs to some extend with WordPress because its constructed from a full CMS rather than a specialized blog CMS.
An often heared complaint of Drupal is that its too complex and takes long to get running. While I haven’t tried out the newest version of Drupal yet, from their “what’s new” vlog (mp4) I understand it now has an installer (the quick start), a new default theme “Garland” (which look much better) and improved theme management. When I compare the vlog with the update vlog of 4.7, we can conclude that Drupal definitely has improved, which is great.
While each CMS remains to have their own advantages and disadvantages, I’m happy to see that overall feature competition among Blog CMS is picking up.
