Interesting New Modules
Better field descriptions - Allows users to write field help text without access to content type admin pages
Phone User - Phone User allows people to register at a Drupal site with only a phone number, for example to register for an event using Registration module.
Nodepoints - "The code is heavily inspired by the Userpoints module, which works in a very similar way, except for the fact that the entities rewarded with points are users."
Node Revision Cleanup - Drush command for cleaning up lots of old node revisions.
File Entity Usage - Allows you to build a view based on the file entity that can be filtered on file id and lists all entities that link to this file.
Entity view count - The entity view count designed tracking views of entities. Unlike the Node view count, Entity view count can track views of entity for a specific view modes.
Formui - Object-oriented replacement for FormAPI
Link Field Formatter - This module provides a new format for the Link field type. This format presents the file as a fully rendered object within a web page - i.e. it displays the contents of the link as appropriate to its filetype: Adobe Acrobat .pdf, Microsoft Word .doc/.docx, Micrososft Excel .xls/.xlsx, Microsoft Powerpoint .ppt/.pptx, using the Google Docs embedded rendering engine.
