    • This will be an overview of the new features in CCK in D6.

There are also lots of API changes for module developers that I can go over, if there are any in the audience.
  • Date Version 5.2 - KarenS
    • Lots of changes to the Date module, including a complete re-work of the API to use the new and better date handling functions in PHP 5.2, lots of new ways to define default values for dates, a new jQuery popup calendar picker (that can be used by other modules, too), and a Date Repeat API that can also be used by other modules.wino kredyt mieszkaniowy sprzedam mieszkanie sprzedam bilet
