In the latest Distribution package a lot of modules have been added that are part of the upcomming Drupal 8. It will give you a fealing like Drupal 8, but under Drupal 7.
The features in a summary are:
- CKEditor will be enabled by default and configured for Filtered HTML and Full HTML text formats.
- The Filtered HTML text format works like Basic HTML under Drupal 8.
- The allowed HTML tags in these both formats are 100% like Drupal 8.
- An additional Restricted HTML text format that has been introduced and is used by default for external guests.
- CKEditor uses Image2 plugin that has less features like the old Image plugin, but is also the default in Drupal 8 and implements the YAML CSS floating classes to align images.
- CKEditor is loaded from CDN by default, but you can also download the Editor to sites/all/libraries folder and reconfigure CKEditor to use the local version.
- The Module filter module has been added and configured like Drupal 8 modules page looks like.
- Local image input filter module disallows users to reference external images in Filtered HTML text format and shows a red cross in case someone tries it.
- IMCE has been added for easier browsing and is configured automatically in CKEditor
- Navbar module has made the default Toolbar and Overlay modules are disabled, too. This is the new Toolbar used in Drupal 8 and is fully mobile ready. A lot of energy has been spend on Navbar in last months to make this module stable and work properly with contrib themes like YAML for Drupal. Latest Navbar 7.x-1.6 has nearly all fixes included. The only open issue is with vertical menus in print mode. The maintainer are currently waiting for the commit to Drupal 8 for not getting out of sync.
- Picture module has been added for better mobile ready images, but is optional.
- JS and CSS preprocessing will be enabled by default and makes your site fast from installation. There is no longer a need to enable this manually after the installation.
This distribution should make your site fully HTML5 and mobile ready, also on the internal admin pages. Let me know if you are aware of any other nice usability enhancements I may missed and that have been backported to Drupal 7. These may get integrated into a future version.
