Maintenance release of the Drupal 7 series. Includes bug fixes and small API/feature improvements only (no major new functionality); significant new features are only being added to the forthcoming Drupal 8.0 release.
No security fixes are included in this release.
As with any release, sites should run update.php after updating the code, but for this release it is particularly important to do so due to database changes in the Image module. In addition, sites which perform updates using Drush (rather than via the user interface) may need to run an explicit cache clear after the updates have run to avoid Image module errors.
Besides documentation fixes, no changes have been made to the robots.txt or default settings.php files in this release, so upgrading custom versions of those files is not necessary.
There are two changes to the .htaccess file in this release:
- A change to add support for HTTP authorization in CGI environments (see #670454).
- A fix for a regression in Drupal 7.22 that caused internal server errors for sites running on very old Apache 1.x web servers (see #1962780).
There is also one change to the web.config file for IIS servers in this release:
