Apparently, some…See More

"Watching it right now. Nice to see them improving the in-line/in-context editing, as we saw that as a major usability asset that many other CMS products had. Thanks for the response."

"I think Drupal 7 will address many of the "confusing" interface problems. Of all the CMS I've looked at it is the most versatile although there is a learning curve. You might want to view this video to see what is coming soon.…"
