Difference between Drupal 6 and Drupal 7

Drupal 7 has been already in market, But I start working very late on it. This is really nice and where lot of new features are added and many of functions are deprecated. Drupal 7 has many module installed or part of the package already which in not in my list. But as a developer we can find the following major change in the drupal 7 :-

  • New Module Dashboard is add. The same type of feature is available in Administration menu for previous versions of drupal.
  • file_directory_path() has being removed from the drupal 7 and file_default_scheme() will be used for same purpose.
  • How to retrieve from the database query
    $recipe = db_query("select * from {tbl_name} ");
    foreach ($recipe as $row){
    //Code Here

    }Which was written earlier as $recipe = db_query("select * from {tbl_name} ");
    while ($row= db_fetch_array($recipe)){

    //Code Here
  • Now we can define more than one Block in same module in drupal 7.
  • hook_install is now optional.

Except the above, drupal team many upgrades in our loving CMS but currently I am listing only five which i noticed while developing  a few sites.

Also, if you find any other difference between Drupal 6 and Drupal 7 please Lets me know.
