White House Gives Back: Drupal Gets New Custom Code

In October, the White House announced that it would be using open-source content management system Drupal. Since then, developers in the administration have developed several new modules for the application and now have released the code for four of them.

Those new modules include Context HTTP Headers, which allows site owners to add new metadata to content; Akamai, which integrates with the Akamai content delivery network; GovDelivery, which tailors e-mails to users’ preferences; and Node Embed, which makes it easier to work with photos and video on the site.
