Drupal 7.0, 2011-01-05 
----------------------
- Database:
    * Fully rewritten database layer utilizing PHP 5's PDO abstraction layer.
    * Drupal now requires MySQL >= 5.0.15 or PostgreSQL >= 8.3.
    * Added query builders for INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, MERGE, and SELECT queries.
    * Support for master/slave replication, transactions, multi-insert queries,
      and other features.
    * Added support for the SQLite database engine.
    * Default to InnoDB engine, rather than MyISAM, on MySQL when available.
      This offers increased scalability and data integrity.
- Security:
    * Protected cron.php -- cron will only run if the proper key is provided.
    * Implemented a pluggable password system and much stronger password hashes
      that are compatible with the Portable PHP password hashing framework.
    * Rate limited login attempts to prevent brute-force password guessing, and
      improved the flood control API to allow variable time windows and
      identifiers for limiting user access to resources.
    * Transformed the "Update status" module into the "Update manager" which
      can securely install or update modules and themes via a web interface.
- Usability:
    * Added contextual links (a.k.a. local tasks) to page elements, such as
      blocks, nodes, or comments, which allows to perform the most common tasks
      with a single click only.
    * Improved installer requirements check.
    * Improved support for integration of WYSIWYG editors.
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for input format listings.
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for language listing.
    * Implemented drag-and-drop positioning for poll options.
    * Provided descriptions and human-readable names for user permissions.
    * Removed comment controls for users.
    * Removed display order settings for comment module. Comment display
      order can now be customized using the Views module.
    * Removed the 'related terms' feature from taxonomy module since this can
      now be achieved with Field API.
    * Added additional features to the default install profile, and implemented
      a "slimmed down" install profile designed for developers.
    * Added a built-in, automated cron run feature, which is triggered by site
      visitors.
    * Added an administrator role which is assigned all permissions for
      installed modules automatically.
    * Image toolkits are now provided by modules (rather than requiring a
      manual file copy to the includes directory).
    * Added an edit tab to taxonomy term pages.
    * Redesigned password strength validator.
    * Redesigned the add content type screen.
    * Highlight duplicate URL aliases.
    * Renamed "input formats" to "text formats".
    * Moved text format permissions to the main permissions page.
    * Added configurable ability for users to cancel their own accounts.
    * Added "vertical tabs", a reusable interface component that features
      automatic summaries and increases usability.
    * Replaced fieldsets on node edit and add pages with vertical tabs.
- Performance:
    * Improved performance on uncached page views by loading multiple core
      objects in a single database query.
    * Improved performance for logged-in users by reducing queries for path
      alias lookups.
    * Improved support for HTTP proxies (including reverse proxies), allowing
      anonymous page views to be served entirely from the proxy.
- Documentation:
    * Hook API documentation now included in Drupal core.
- News aggregator:
    * Added OPML import functionality for RSS feeds.
    * Optionally, RSS feeds may be configured to not automatically generate feed blocks.
- Search:
    * Added support for language-aware searches.
- Aggregator:
    * Introduced architecture that allows pluggable parsers and processors for
      syndicating RSS and Atom feeds.
    * Added options to suspend updating specific feeds and never discard feeds
      items.
- Testing:
    * Added test framework and tests.
- Improved time zone support:
    * Drupal now uses PHP's time zone database when rendering dates in local
      time. Site-wide and user-configured time zone offsets have been converted
      to time zone names, e.g. Africa/Abidjan.
    * In some cases the upgrade and install scripts do not choose the preferred
      site default time zone. The automatically-selected time zone can be
      corrected at admin/config/regional/settings.
    * If your site is being upgraded from Drupal 6 and you do not have the
      contributed date or event modules installed, user time zone settings will
      fallback to the system time zone and will have to be reconfigured by each user.
    * User-configured time zones now serve as the default time zone for PHP
      date/time functions.
- Filter system:
    * Revamped the filter API and text format storage.
    * Added support for default text formats to be assigned on a per-role basis.
    * Refactored the HTML corrector to take advantage of PHP 5 features.
- User system:
    * Added clean API functions for creating, loading, updating, and deleting
      user roles and permissions.
    * Refactored the "access rules" component of user module: The user module
      now provides a simple interface for blocking single IP addresses. The
      previous functionality in the user module for restricting certain e-mail
      addresses and usernames is now available as a contributed module. Further,
      IP address range blocking is no longer supported and should be implemented
      at the operating system level.
    * Removed per-user themes: Contributed modules with similar functionality
      are available.
- OpenID:
    * Added support for Gmail and Google Apps for Domain identifiers. Users can
      now login with their user@example.com identifier when example.com is powered
      by Google.
    * Made the OpenID module more pluggable.
- Added code registry:
    * Using the registry, modules declare their includable files via their .info file,
      allowing Drupal to lazy-load classes and interfaces as needed.
- Theme system:
    * Removed the Bluemarine, Chameleon and Pushbutton themes. These themes live
      on as contributed themes (http://drupal.org/project/bluemarine,
      http://drupal.org/project/chameleon and http://drupal.org/project/pushbutton).
    * Added Stark theme to make analyzing Drupal's default HTML and CSS easier.
    * Added Seven as the default administration theme.
    * Variable preprocessing of theme hooks prior to template rendering now goes
      through two phases: a 'preprocess' phase and a new 'process' phase. See
      http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
    * Theme hooks implemented as functions (rather than as templates) can now
      also have preprocess (and process) functions. See
      http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
    * Added Bartik as the default theme.
- File handling:
    * Files are now first class Drupal objects with file_load(), file_save(),
      and file_validate() functions and corresponding hooks.
    * The file_move(), file_copy() and file_delete() functions now operate on
      file objects and invoke file hooks so that modules are notified and can
      respond to changes.
    * For the occasions when only basic file manipulation are needed--such as
      uploading a site logo--that don't require the overhead of databases and
      hooks, the current unmanaged copy, move and delete operations have been
      preserved but renamed to file_unmanaged_*().
    * Rewrote file handling to use PHP stream wrappers to enable support for
      both public and private files and to support pluggable storage mechanisms
      and access to remote resources (e.g. S3 storage or Flickr photos).
    * The mime_extension_mapping variable has been removed. Modules that need to
      alter the default MIME type extension mappings should implement
      hook_file_mimetype_mapping_alter().
    * Added the hook_file_url_alter() hook, which makes it possible to serve
      files from a CDN.
    * Added a field specifically for uploading files, previously provided by
      the contributed module FileField.
- Image handling:
    * Improved image handling, including better support for add-on image
      libraries.
    * Added API and interface for creating advanced image thumbnails.
    * Inclusion of additional effects such as rotate and desaturate.
    * Added a field specifically for uploading images, previously provided by
      the contributed module ImageField.
- Added aliased multi-site support:
    * Added support for mapping domain names to sites directories.
- Added RDF support:
    * Modules can declare RDF namespaces which are serialized in the <html> tag
      for RDFa support.
    * Modules can specify how their data structure maps to RDF.
    * Added support for RDFa export of nodes, comments, terms, users, etc. and
      their fields.
- Search engine optimization and web linking:
    * Added a rel="canonical" link on node and comment pages to prevent
      duplicate content indexing by search engines.
    * Added a default rel="shortlink" link on node and comment pages that
      advertises a short link as an alternative URL to third-party services.
    * Meta information is now alterable by all modules before rendering.
- Field API:
    * Custom data fields may be attached to nodes, users, comments and taxonomy
      terms.
    * Node bodies and teasers are now Field API fields instead of
      being a hard-coded property of node objects.
    * In addition, any other object type may register with Field API
      and allow custom data fields to be attached to itself.
    * Provides most of the features of the former Content Construction
      Kit (CCK) module.
    * Taxonomy terms are now Field API fields that can be added to any fieldable
      object.
- Installer:
    * Refactored the installer into an API that allows Drupal to be installed
      via a command line script.
- Page organization
    * Made the help text area a full featured region with blocks.
    * Site mission is replaced with the highlighted content block region and
      separate RSS feed description settings.
    * The footer message setting was removed in favor of custom blocks.
    * Made the main page content a block which can be moved and ordered
      with other blocks in the same region.
    * Blocks can now return structured arrays for later rendering just
      like page callbacks.
- Translation system
    * The translation system now supports message context (msgctxt).
    * Added support for translatable fields to Field API.
- JavaScript changes
    * Upgraded the core JavaScript library to jQuery version 1.4.4.
    * Upgraded the jQuery Forms library to 2.52.
    * Added jQuery UI 1.8.7, which allows improvements to Drupal's user
      experience.
- Better module version support
    * Modules now can specify which version of another module they depend on.
- Removed modules from core
    * The following modules have been removed from core, because contributed
      modules with similar functionality are available:
      * Blog API module
      * Ping module
      * Throttle module
- Improved node access control system.
    * All modules may now influence the access to a node at runtime, not just
      the module that defined a node.
    * Users may now be allowed to bypass node access restrictions without giving
      them complete access to the site.
    * Access control affects both published and unpublished nodes.
    * Numerous other improvements to the node access system.
- Actions system
    * Simplified definitions of actions and triggers.
    * Removed dependency on the combination of hooks and operations. Triggers
      now directly map to module hooks.
- Task handling
    * Added a queue API to process many or long-running tasks.
    * Added queue API support to cron API.
    * Added a locking framework to coordinate long-running operations across
      requests.

    * Everything is based on nodes: nodes are a conceptual "black box" to couple and manage different types of content and that promotes reusing existing code, thus reducing the complexity and size of Drupal as well as improving long-term stability.
- Rewrote submission/moderation queue and renamed it to queue.module.
- Removed FAQ and documentation module and merged them into a "book module".
- Removed ban module and integrated it into account.module as "access control":
    * Access control is based on much more powerful regular expressions (regex) now rather than on MySQL pattern matching.
- Rewrote watchdog and submission throttle:
    * Improved watchdog messages and added watchdog filter.
- Rewrote headline code and renamed it to import.module and export.module:
    * Added various improvements, including a better parser, bundles and better control over individual feeds.
- Rewrote section code and renamed it to meta.module:
    * Supports unlimited amount of nested topics. Topics can be nested to create a multi-level hierarchy.
- Rewrote configuration file resolving:
    * Drupal tries to locate a configuration file that matches your domain name or uses conf.php if the former failed. Note also that the configuration files got renamed from .conf to .php for security's sake on mal-configured Drupal sites.
- Added caching support which makes Drupal extremely scalable.
- Added access.module:
    * Allows you to set up 'roles' (groups) and to bind a set of permissions to each group.
- Added blog.module.
- Added poll.module.
- Added system.module:
    * Moved most of the configuration options from hostname.conf to the new administration section.
    * Added support for custom "filters".
- Added statistics.module
- Added moderate.module:
    * Allows to assign users editorial/moderator rights to certain nodes or topics.
- Added page.module:
    * Allows creation of static (and dynamic) pages through the administration interface.
- Added help.module:
    * Groups all available module documentation on a single page.
- Added forum.module:
    * Added an integrated forum.
- Added cvs.module and cvs-to-sql.pl:
    * Allows to display and mail CVS log messages as daily digests.
- Added book.module:
    * Allows collaborative handbook writing: primary used for Drupal documentation.
- Removed cron.module and integrated it into conf.module.
- Removed module.module as it was no longer needed.
- Various updates:
    * Added "auto-post new submissions" feature versus "moderate new submissions".
    * Introduced links/Drupal tags: [[link]]
    * Added preview functionality when submitting new content (such as a story) from the administration pages.
    * Made the administration section only show those links a user has access to.
    * Made all modules use specific form_* functions to guarantee a rock-solid forms and more consistent layout.
    * Improved scheduler:
        + Content can be scheduled to be 'posted', 'queued' and 'hidden'.
    * Improved account module:
        + Added "access control" to allow/deny certain usernames/e-mail addresses/hostnames.
    * Improved locale module:
        + Added new overview to easy the translation process.
    * Improved comment module:
        + Made it possible to permanently delete comments.
    * Improved rating module
    * Improved story module:
        + Added preview functionality for administrators.
        + Made it possible to permanently delete stories.
    * Improved themes:
        + W3C validation on a best effort basis.
        + Removed $theme->control() from themes.
        + Added theme "goofy".
- Collaboratively revised and expanded the Drupal documentation.

Drupal 2.0.0, 2001-03-15
------------------------
- Rewrote the comment/discussion code:
    * Comment navigation should be less confusing now.
    * Additional/alternative display and order methods have been added.
    * Modules can be extended with a "comment system": modules can embed the existing comment system without having to write their own, duplicate comment system.
- Added sections and section manager:
    * Story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
    * Story sections make the open submission more adaptive in that you can set individual post, dump and expiration thresholds for each section according to the story type and urgency level: stories in certain sections do not "expire" and might stay interesting and active as time passes by, whereas news-related stories are only considered "hot" over a short period of time.
- Multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
    * You can set up multiple Drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.
- Added "user ratings" similar to SlashCode's Karma or Scoop's Mojo:
    * All rating logic is packed into a module to ease experimenting with different rating heuristics/algorithms.
- Added "search infrastructure":
    * Improved search page and integrated search functionality in the administration pages.
- Added translation / localization / internationalization support:
    * Because many people would love to see their website showing a lot less of English, and far more of their own language, Drupal provides a framework to set up a multi-lingual website or to overwrite the default English text in English.
- Added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
    * Users can be granted access to specific administration sections. Example: a FAQ maintainer can be given access to maintain the FAQ and translators can be given access to the translation pages.
- Added FAQ module
- Changed the "open submission queue" into a (optional) module.
- Various updates:
    * Improved account module:
        + User accounts can be deleted.
        + Added fine-grained permission support.
    * Improved block module
    * Improved diary module:
        + Diary entries can be deleted
    * Improved headline module:
        + Improved parser to support more "generic" RDF/RSS/XML backend.
    * Improved module module
    * Improved watchdog module
    * Improved database abstraction layer
    * Improved themes:
        + W3C validation on a best effort basis
        + Added theme "example" (alias "Stone Age")
    * Added new scripts to directory "scripts"
    * Added directory "misc"
    * Added CREDITS file

  73. can securely install or update modules and themes via a web interface.
  74. - Usability:
  75. * Added contextual links (a.k.a. local tasks) to page elements, such as
  76. blocks, nodes, or comments, which allows to perform the most common tasks
  77. with a single click only.

  87. * Removed the 'related terms' feature from taxonomy module since this can
  88. now be achieved with Field API.
  89. * Added additional features to the default install profile, and implemented
  90. a "slimmed down" install profile designed for developers.
  91. * Added a built-in, automated cron run feature, which is triggered by site
  92. visitors.
  93. * Added an administrator role which is assigned all permissions for
  94. installed modules automatically.
  95. * Image toolkits are now provided by modules (rather than requiring a

  106. * Replaced fieldsets on node edit and add pages with vertical tabs.
  107. - Performance:
  108. * Improved performance on uncached page views by loading multiple core
  109. objects in a single database query.
  110. * Improved performance for logged-in users by reducing queries for path
  111. alias lookups.
  112. * Improved support for HTTP proxies (including reverse proxies), allowing
  113. anonymous page views to be served entirely from the proxy.
  114. - Documentation:
  115. * Hook API documentation now included in Drupal core.
  116. - News aggregator:
  117. * Added OPML import functionality for RSS feeds.
  118. * Optionally, RSS feeds may be configured to not automatically generate feed blocks.
  119. - Search:
  120. * Added support for language-aware searches.

  122. * Introduced architecture that allows pluggable parsers and processors for
  123. syndicating RSS and Atom feeds.
  124. * Added options to suspend updating specific feeds and never discard feeds
  125. items.
  126. - Testing:
  127. * Added test framework and tests.
  128. - Improved time zone support:
  129. * Drupal now uses PHP's time zone database when rendering dates in local
  130. time. Site-wide and user-configured time zone offsets have been converted
  131. to time zone names, e.g. Africa/Abidjan.
  132. * In some cases the upgrade and install scripts do not choose the preferred
  133. site default time zone. The automatically-selected time zone can be
  134. corrected at admin/config/regional/settings.
  135. * If your site is being upgraded from Drupal 6 and you do not have the
  136. contributed date or event modules installed, user time zone settings will
  137. fallback to the system time zone and will have to be reconfigured by each user.
  138. * User-configured time zones now serve as the default time zone for PHP
  139. date/time functions.
  140. - Filter system:
  141. * Revamped the filter API and text format storage.
  142. * Added support for default text formats to be assigned on a per-role basis.
  143. * Refactored the HTML corrector to take advantage of PHP 5 features.
  144. - User system:
  145. * Added clean API functions for creating, loading, updating, and deleting
  146. user roles and permissions.
  147. * Refactored the "access rules" component of user module: The user module
  148. now provides a simple interface for blocking single IP addresses. The
  149. previous functionality in the user module for restricting certain e-mail
  150. addresses and usernames is now available as a contributed module. Further,
  151. IP address range blocking is no longer supported and should be implemented
  152. at the operating system level.
  153. * Removed per-user themes: Contributed modules with similar functionality
  154. are available.
  155. - OpenID:
  156. * Added support for Gmail and Google Apps for Domain identifiers. Users can
  157. now login with their user@example.com identifier when example.com is powered
  158. by Google.
  159. * Made the OpenID module more pluggable.
  160. - Added code registry:
  161. * Using the registry, modules declare their includable files via their .info file,
  162. allowing Drupal to lazy-load classes and interfaces as needed.
  163. - Theme system:
  164. * Removed the Bluemarine, Chameleon and Pushbutton themes. These themes live
  165. on as contributed themes (http://drupal.org/project/bluemarine,
  166. http://drupal.org/project/chameleon and http://drupal.org/project/pushbutton).
  167. * Added Stark theme to make analyzing Drupal's default HTML and CSS easier.
  168. * Added Seven as the default administration theme.
  169. * Variable preprocessing of theme hooks prior to template rendering now goes
  170. through two phases: a 'preprocess' phase and a new 'process' phase. See
  171. http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
  172. * Theme hooks implemented as functions (rather than as templates) can now
  173. also have preprocess (and process) functions. See
  174. http://api.drupal.org/api/function/theme/7 for details.
  175. * Added Bartik as the default theme.
  176. - File handling:
  177. * Files are now first class Drupal objects with file_load(), file_save(),
  178. and file_validate() functions and corresponding hooks.
  179. * The file_move(), file_copy() and file_delete() functions now operate on
  180. file objects and invoke file hooks so that modules are notified and can
  181. respond to changes.
  182. * For the occasions when only basic file manipulation are needed--such as
  183. uploading a site logo--that don't require the overhead of databases and
  184. hooks, the current unmanaged copy, move and delete operations have been
  185. preserved but renamed to file_unmanaged_*().
  186. * Rewrote file handling to use PHP stream wrappers to enable support for
  187. both public and private files and to support pluggable storage mechanisms
  188. and access to remote resources (e.g. S3 storage or Flickr photos).
  189. * The mime_extension_mapping variable has been removed. Modules that need to
  190. alter the default MIME type extension mappings should implement
  191. hook_file_mimetype_mapping_alter().
  192. * Added the hook_file_url_alter() hook, which makes it possible to serve
  193. files from a CDN.
  194. * Added a field specifically for uploading files, previously provided by
  195. the contributed module FileField.
  196. - Image handling:
  197. * Improved image handling, including better support for add-on image
  198. libraries.
  199. * Added API and interface for creating advanced image thumbnails.
  200. * Inclusion of additional effects such as rotate and desaturate.
  201. * Added a field specifically for uploading images, previously provided by
  202. the contributed module ImageField.
  203. - Added aliased multi-site support:
  204. * Added support for mapping domain names to sites directories.
  205. - Added RDF support:
  206. * Modules can declare RDF namespaces which are serialized in the <html> tag
  207. for RDFa support.
  208. * Modules can specify how their data structure maps to RDF.
  209. * Added support for RDFa export of nodes, comments, terms, users, etc. and
  210. their fields.
  211. - Search engine optimization and web linking:
  212. * Added a rel="canonical" link on node and comment pages to prevent
  213. duplicate content indexing by search engines.
  214. * Added a default rel="shortlink" link on node and comment pages that
  215. advertises a short link as an alternative URL to third-party services.
  216. * Meta information is now alterable by all modules before rendering.
  217. - Field API:
  218. * Custom data fields may be attached to nodes, users, comments and taxonomy
  219. terms.
  220. * Node bodies and teasers are now Field API fields instead of
  221. being a hard-coded property of node objects.
  222. * In addition, any other object type may register with Field API
  223. and allow custom data fields to be attached to itself.
  224. * Provides most of the features of the former Content Construction
  225. Kit (CCK) module.
  226. * Taxonomy terms are now Field API fields that can be added to any fieldable
  227. object.
  228. - Installer:
  229. * Refactored the installer into an API that allows Drupal to be installed
  230. via a command line script.
  231. - Page organization
  232. * Made the help text area a full featured region with blocks.
  233. * Site mission is replaced with the highlighted content block region and
  234. separate RSS feed description settings.
  235. * The footer message setting was removed in favor of custom blocks.
  236. * Made the main page content a block which can be moved and ordered
  237. with other blocks in the same region.
  238. * Blocks can now return structured arrays for later rendering just
  239. like page callbacks.
  240. - Translation system
  241. * The translation system now supports message context (msgctxt).
  242. * Added support for translatable fields to Field API.
  243. - JavaScript changes
  244. * Upgraded the core JavaScript library to jQuery version 1.4.4.
  245. * Upgraded the jQuery Forms library to 2.52.
  246. * Added jQuery UI 1.8.7, which allows improvements to Drupal's user
  247. experience.
  248. - Better module version support
  249. * Modules now can specify which version of another module they depend on.
  250. - Removed modules from core
  251. * The following modules have been removed from core, because contributed
  252. modules with similar functionality are available:
  253. * Blog API module
  254. * Ping module
  255. * Throttle module
  256. - Improved node access control system.
  257. * All modules may now influence the access to a node at runtime, not just
  258. the module that defined a node.
  259. * Users may now be allowed to bypass node access restrictions without giving
  260. them complete access to the site.
  261. * Access control affects both published and unpublished nodes.
  262. * Numerous other improvements to the node access system.
  263. - Actions system
  264. * Simplified definitions of actions and triggers.
  265. * Removed dependency on the combination of hooks and operations. Triggers
  266. now directly map to module hooks.
  267. - Task handling
  268. * Added a queue API to process many or long-running tasks.
  269. * Added queue API support to cron API.
  270. * Added a locking framework to coordinate long-running operations across
  271. requests.

  1207. * Modules can be extended with a "comment system": modules can embed the existing comment system without having to write their own, duplicate comment system.
  1208. - Added sections and section manager:
  1209. * Story sections can be maintained from the administration pages.
  1210. * Story sections make the open submission more adaptive in that you can set individual post, dump and expiration thresholds for each section according to the story type and urgency level: stories in certain sections do not "expire" and might stay interesting and active as time passes by, whereas news-related stories are only considered "hot" over a short period of time.
  1211. - Multiple vhosts + multiple directories:
  1212. * You can set up multiple Drupal sites on top of the same physical source tree either by using vhosts or sub-directories.
  1213. - Added "user ratings" similar to SlashCode's Karma or Scoop's Mojo:
  1214. * All rating logic is packed into a module to ease experimenting with different rating heuristics/algorithms.
  1215. - Added "search infrastructure":
  1216. * Improved search page and integrated search functionality in the administration pages.
  1217. - Added translation / localization / internationalization support:
  1218. * Because many people would love to see their website showing a lot less of English, and far more of their own language, Drupal provides a framework to set up a multi-lingual website or to overwrite the default English text in English.
  1219. - Added fine-grained user permission (or group) system:
  1220. * Users can be granted access to specific administration sections. Example: a FAQ maintainer can be given access to maintain the FAQ and translators can be given access to the translation pages.
  1221. - Added FAQ module
  1222. - Changed the "open submission queue" into a (optional) module.
  1223. - Various updates:
  1224. * Improved account module:
  1225. + User accounts can be deleted.
  1226. + Added fine-grained permission support.
  1227. * Improved block module
  1228. * Improved diary module:
  1229. + Diary entries can be deleted
  1230. * Improved headline module:
  1231. + Improved parser to support more "generic" RDF/RSS/XML backend.
  1232. * Improved module module
  1233. * Improved watchdog module
  1234. * Improved database abstraction layer
  1235. * Improved themes:
  1236. + W3C validation on a best effort basis
  1237. + Added theme "example" (alias "Stone Age")
  1238. * Added new scripts to directory "scripts"
  1239. * Added directory "misc"
  1240. * Added CREDITS file
