Announcing Drupal Rooms 1.0 Release

After almost 22 months since our initial commit on the Rooms project we are happy to announce a 1.0 release! We are really proud of this release as it brings together a rich set of features built on a flexible core that can grow and improve over time.

New in Drupal Rooms

We’ve been keeping busy since our last update on Rooms! We’ve just released Rooms RC2 and are readying for a V 1.0 release before we meet up for DrupalCon in Portland.

Please download and test, as we will not be adding any new features for 1.0, just cleaning up and fixing bugs. We’re very close!
