Drupal 6.20 released

Drupal 6.20, a maintenance release fixing issues reported through the bug tracking system, is now available for download. There are no security fixes in this release. Upgrading your existing Drupal 6 sites is recommended.

Highlights of changes in this release include settings form inheritance for subthemes, syslog identity configuration support, better update support from Drupal 5, support for the tel: protocol, several fixes to the node translation system, fixes for CSS aggregation with non UTF-8 characters, support for specifying database collation, more complete coverage of HTML entities in entity decoding and various documentation fixes and other smaller bugfixes. In total almost 50 patches were committed to improve Drupal 6. For more information about the Drupal 6.x release series, consult the Drupal 6.0 release announcement

Note that Drupal 5 will no longer be maintained when Drupal 7 is released. Upgrading to Drupal 6 is recommended. The latest Drupal 7 development version is Drupal 7 RC2.

The full list of changes between the 6.19 and 6.20 releases can be found by reading the 6.20 release notes. A complete list of all bug fixes in the stable DRUPAL-6 branch can be found at http://drupal.org/project/cvs/3060/?branch=DRUPAL-6.

Given enough bug fixes (not just bug reports) more maintenance releases will be made available.

Update notes

The robots.txt file was changed in this release to allow for uploaded files in /sites/ to be indexed by search engines. See http://drupal.org/node/494462 for more information. The release did not change the .htaccess and (default.)settings.php files however, so you can keep your existing files intact, if you have modifications in them.
