Drupal 7, the latest upgrade to the popular open source Web content management system, is now generally available, Drupal builders said on Wednesday.

Drupal powers millions of websites and applications, including WhiteHouse.gov and InfoWorld.com. Better usability is a primary focus of version 7, which has been in development for three years, said Drupal founder Dries Buytaert. "We contracted with some of the world's best usability experts and we paid them for work on Drupal 7 usability for six months," said Buytaert, who is chief technology officer at Acquia, which provides commercial-grade support for Drupal.
