After many delays, Drupal 7 was released to great fanfare recently... and after returning from DrupalCon Chicago I've *finally* had time to build a site (this one) with the official release! Overall, it's been fantastic - installation, adding contrib modules, configuring the site - everything has been fast and easy. The new admin interface and organization will definitely take a little getting used to - after using D6 for years, I have muscle memory for the old admin_menu structure. However, for new clients, it looks like it will be much more intuitive and user-friendly. At DrupalCon last week, I attended some sessions on D7 theming so next steps will be implementing a simple customized theme for the site. Stay tuned!
