Views random seed

Guilty as charged: I didn't really do much work on PM during the conference, but I ended up releasing a new version of Nodes in block and a new module called Views random seed for views 2. The module adds a random order handler with seed. If a constant integer argument N is specified in the sql RAND() function, it is used as the seed value, which produces a repeatable sequence of column values. This makes it possible to have paging and not having items show up twice.

See http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/mathematical-functions.html#funct... for more info about RAND() and the optional integer argument.

Anyway, it was a cool week in DC and we're off to New York tomorrow, Turn on the Bright Lights!

DrupalCon DC: let's get PM in core ?

I'll be in washington next week for the upcoming DrupalCon and in New York the week after that to chill out. My personal plan - codewise - in DC is simple: working a bit more on plugin manager so it might be included into core one day. Chx already posted further steps to work on, but there is more work to be done. We should create a list with the most important missing pieces for PM to totally rock, so add more stuff on #336743 and let's have a quick bof session at the con. The code sprint on saturday should at least result in a few patches for the D7 branch of the module. We need code monkeys, UI people and - most importantly - testers so everyone is welcome. Care to help ? See you all on tuesday!
