Interesting New Modules

CalDAV Events - CalDAV reader & writer. React to events and manage calendar information from a CalDAV server.

Entity Recur - Allows you to recur entities based on repeating criteria. The recurring process will automatically generate copies of the entity, changing a date field value to represent the recurring pattern.

Fallback formatter - Provides a field formatter that can attempt multiple formatters and the first one that returns output wins.

Entity Embed - Allows any entity to be embedded using a WYSIWYG and text format Development

Banned Projects - Allows you to select a list of modules that you don't want to be enabled. Example use case: you host a bunch of sites in an multi-sites installation, and you don't want the administrators to be able to enable certain modules.
