Interesting New Modules

Apache Solr Address Field - Makes it possible to index details from an Address Field (city, zip, country, ...) into an Apache Solr index. Additionally it provides extra facets for city, zip, country.

Diff Different - Diff Different adds an extra modus operandi to the wonderful Diff module by: offering a side-by-side diff comparison section of revisions that is inserted on the normal /node/xxx content page, rather than on a special page elsewhere.

FedEx Address Validation - Provides an addressfield plugin to validate an address using the Fedex address validation service.

Commerce Stock Reserve - Extends Commerce Stock to allow safe reserving and restoring of stock levels, removing the risk of overselling when multiple customers are attempting to buy the same product at the same time.

OpenCalais API - An integration of the Thomson Reuters' Calais web service into the Drupal platform. The Calais Web Service automatically creates rich semantic metadata for the content you submit.

Simpletest Turbo - This module allows developers to cache tables in their tests' setUp() function, meaning tests run faster if many test cases use the same setUp() and it is using Simpletest Turbo.
