Drupal is an open source content management platform powering hundreds of thousands of websites and applications. Notable websites are WhiteHouse.gov and the many top music artist's sites of Warner Media Group. Drupal 7 features the latest web technologies and remarkable improvements to user experience (UX). Drupal is the first major CMS to include RDF as part of its DNA and embed RDFa markup out of the box: all Drupal 7 sites annotate by default their pages, comments, images, tags, authors, posted date with the popular SIOC, FOAF, Dublin Core, and SKOS vocabularies. We hope that with Drupal adopting RDFa, we can pave the way for a greater adoption of the Semantic Web technologies. Drupal is estimated to power 1% of the Web, and even though Drupal 7 was just released, more than 30,000 websites are already powered by Drupal 7 [1]. With today's announcement, this number is likely to sky rocket in the coming months.
> Please read the official announcement which includes many of the new features of Drupal 7, a tour video and download links: http://drupal.org/drupal-7.0 . We are celebrating this release on Friday with 248 parties in 88 countries, check for a party near you at [2]. If you want to give Drupal 7 a try, I would encourage you to check out Drupal Gardens for a free hosted Drupal site [3]. You can also install Drupal 7 on your favorite LAMP server.
> I would like to take this opportunity to thank many individuals who supported the integration of RDF in Drupal in one way or another over the past years. I would like to thank Dr. Axel Polleres at DERI Galway and Tim Clark at Mass General for allowing me to work on this and providing support & funding for this work. Special thanks to Lin Clark, Fintan Galvin, Toby Inkster, Alexandre Passant, John Breslin, Antoine Isaac, Simon Reinhardt, Manu Sporny, Vasiliy Faronov, Nathan, Steven Pemberton, Dan Brickley, Richard Cyganiak as well as many other contributors [4]. (If I missed your name, please let me know!).
