Drupal 7.7 released

Drupal 7.5, a maintenance release which fixes security vulnerabilities is now available for download. Drupal 7.7 also fixes other issues reported through the bug tracking system. Note: Drupal 7.7 is just Drupal 7.6 with a fixed VERSION string (7.6 was reporting itself as 7.5). No other changes. Upgrading your existing Drupal 7 sites is strongly recommended. There are no new features in these releases. For more information about the Drupal 7.x release series, consult the Drupal 7.0 release announcement. Changelog Drupal 7.5 only includes fixes for security issues. Drupal 7.6 also includes bugfixes. The full list of changes between the 7.4 and 7.7 releases can be found by reading the 7.6 release notes. A complete list of all bug fixes in the stable 7.x branch can be found in the git commit log. Security vulnerabilities Drupal 7.5 was released in response to the discovery of security vulnerabilities. Details can be found in the official security advisory: SA-CORE-2011-003 To fix the security problem, please upgrade Drupal. Update notes (#634616) AJAX now responds to 'click' instead of 'mousedown'. Testing was performed to make sure this doesn't affect major contributed modules, but could cause issues. (#1164852) The 'translatable' flag on fields added via the UI now defaults to FALSE, same as fields added via the API do. Contrib modules such as Entity Translation can allow toggling this back for sites that need it. An upgrade path will be included in a future release to bring all legacy fields into compliance. (#1083982) Remote streamwrappers are now supported, because of fixes to where drupal_realpath() is called. Drupal 7.7 Release Note The sixth maintenance release of the Drupal 7 series. Only bugfixes have been committed. No security fixes are included in this release. New features are only being added to the forthcoming Drupal 8.0 release. This release includes the security fixes from Drupal 7.5 which was released alongside Drupal 7.6. No additional security fixes are included.
