It's been a while since the last major Drupal release (nearly 4 months in fact), so it's time for something fresh. Behind the scenes, Drupal developers have been busy working on the next release, Drupal 4.4.0. To prepare for this release, we have frozen the code for the 4.4 branch. In the initial stage of the code freeze, documentation updates, usability improvements and performance improvements will still be accepted. However, no new features or functionality will be added.
