I have finished up the database layer for Drupaltin 2 and need some testers. This database layer interfaces both the Drupal and vBulletin database to Drupaltin, which is a very important piece.
Something else which is new is the svn repository. I have started a repository for Drupaltin so it is easier to keep track of things. So far I have only committed the database layer, but I will soon be committing other code I have done ;-)
Checkout the the handbook page on SVN for more info on that.
In the time since my last Drupaltin blog post a lot of things have happened. Probably one of the biggest is the release of vbDrupal 5. I want to start off by saying that Drupaltin and vbDrupal are not the same. vbDrupal is a fork of Drupal which is a heavily modified version of Drupal with it's own code thrown in the mix. It all sounds fine and dandy except the code is not built by hundreds of developers and tested by thousands and used by hundreds of thousands. What does this mean?
