Views Term Path Override improves Views and Taxonomy integration by allowing to override the taxonomy term paths. This is done through an option of the Views Taxonomy term argument: a checkbox will be available on taxonomy term arguments whose display has the path property; when the checkbox is active every URL pointing to taxonomy/term/<tid> will become <display_path>/<term_name>.

The configuration is strictly tied to the view display's one, as a consequence you do not need to specify a path for the URL rewriting (since it is inherited from the display), and if you change the path the URL rewritings are updated automatically.

If you wish a simple and seamless replacement for taxonomy pages through Views, you want this :)

From the announcement on drupal.org presenting Sabir: a user-friendly news platform for multilingual communities.

Over the past year we saw two parallel community initiatives heavily influencing the development of Drupal 7: a huge effort in improving Drupal's usability that led to the introduction of solutions and features, radically changing the user experience in building sites with Drupal 7. At the same time, advancing on the direction taken with Drupal 6, many internationalization improvements were introduced in core and many more will be available through contributed modules.

Both initiatives were driven by key contributors of the community, to promote them and push them forward. Self-organized sprints were held both for UX and i18n improvements, which allowed people to know each other better, work together, drafting ideas, and participate in designing and developing ideal solutions.

As a natural consequence, we launched the Sabir proposal: a community-driven project which aims to produce a platform dedicated to communities with minimal technical expertise, allowing to easily share news in multiple languages.
