For folks who need imagecache conversions to be automated, the dev version of Media Mover 6 has a new module which will create all of the imagecache presets that are select for Media Mover files. This makes it easy to to push the derivatives to a CDN service without relying on users to hit the URL for the imagecache file. Hooray!
Progress, progress, progress. Lots of backend improvements. UI is getting better. Hopefully going to be seeing some new content from Aaron in the form of YouTube shortly. Hooray! Checkout the screencast for the full details
This past summer, Packt Publishing was kind enough to send me a copy of Drupal 6 Content Administration by J. Ayen Green. Having told clients "hey, you wanted a complicated website, why do you think it's going to be easy to administer?" way to many times, I've been awaiting a book to provide an introduction to Drupal which covers some of the key- and not so obvious- aspects in a short read. Despite having been a Drupal developer for several years, I still find myself scratching my head at supposedly mundane tasks (what recipe is best for uploading files with a WYSIWYG editor for example). A book that can walk through day to day site administration tasks is a fantastic resource, especially for folks are on unfamiliar ground.
