All shared Drupal installations have been upgraded to the most recent stable versions (INSERT VERSIONS HERE).

Drupal ( is a web content management system that many members use to drive their web sites. May First/People Link members who have installed Drupal through our Members Control Panel use a shared installation of Drupal. If you are using a shared installation, your Drupal installation has been upgraded for you. For more information about our shared Drupal installation, please see:

Please note, we have only performed a minor point upgrade. For example, if you are running Drupal 6, you have not been upgraded to Drupal 7. Instead, you have been upgraded from the particular version of Drupal 6 (e.g. 6.21) to the next Drupal 6 version (e.g. 6.22). Also, this upgrade only affects Drupal core. It is your responsibility to upgrade your third party Drupal modules.
