Drupal 6 menu system

Drupal just got a heart transplant - now with a heart of gold

I will talk about the menu system of the upcoming Drupal 6 release.

The menu system of Drupal has been always much more than a simple navigaton menu. The last significant change happened in 2004 fall and despite it was quite good, we found many shortcomings since then. I will tell you about this, the problems that turned out to be mostly unfixable in the old system. I will talk about the general design of the new system, how it made the old problems irrevelant and what new problems we have faced.
