Overview: Updating the Menu Block Module 7.x-3.x to use new Drupal Core 7 Menu APIs.
Description: The current menu_block 7.x-2.x branch still uses APIs that were available in D6. There are new menu APIs in D7 that allow sub-trees to be retrieved. The menu_block 7.x-3.x needs to be re-worked to use those APIs.
Drupal Core’s menu blocks just print an entire tree of a specific menu. The Menu Block Module has the configuration to allow flexible menu-based navigation as blocks. It also only adds a block to the block admin page when you actually want a menu-based block and not before. The long-term goal related to this project (post-summer & beyond) is to possibly move the menu block module into Drupal 8 Core.
