The Media Sprint in late October was amazing! Jody and Maarten hunkered in one corner and bashed out the UI, while Peter and Darrel worked out some of the FileField integration. Meanwhile Arthur whipped out a File Metadata implementation, and I began teasing the existing work out of Drupal 6 and into Drupal 7.
Also in the fray were Jonathan, Forest, Rob, Oleg, and Jen, who participated in varying degrees. Jen also took the opportunity to begin a cool new core theme for Drupal 7, and with Darrel's help took some time to give us a pre-fab image field with core articles! W00T!
The sprint was an amazing success. The module actually works now, as evidenced by Arthur's demonstration screencast. After installing Media, you can actually browse your file system in the administrative screen, with lovely thumbnails representing the file objects. The same action is also available when uploading a new file.
In the past couple of weeks, we've also made strides towards implementing remote streams, with the Media: YouTube module almost ready for unveiling.
Well, there's still more to come, and we could definitely use your help. We have the beginnings of Media Styles, to do for files what ImageCache (Image Styles in 7 core) does for images. Once we've got YouTube working, we'll need to crank out a dozen or two other remote streams, to work out the kinks in the system (and to help make the whole thing infinitely more usable). We'll definitely need willing beta-testers active in the issue queue, and there are still a few lingering questions for #d7ux. And we haven't even begun talking WYSIWYG yet...
