A new release of the userpoints module for Drupal has been released.

Feature highlights include the following.

  • A new transaction system that is in effect an audit trail.
  • A moderation system allowing the admin to review and approve/decline points that are earned by users. This is helpful in preventing abuse.
  • Administrator defined points. An admin can decide to grant points to a certain user.
  • A new API and hook system for module developers. Modules can add their own settings to userpoints module, as well as act on points being gained/lost.
  • Modular design separating the parts in serveral modules: userpoints.module handles the API as well as the transaction system and moderation. userpoints_basic.module handles the most common actions, and userpoints_ecommerce.modile handles points for purchases, as well as using points as a payments method.

With this new design, module developer can extend their modules in new and exciting ways.

Great! Looks very promising. The audit log and admin defined points are exactly what I am looking for my 5.0 site. Any plan on porting it to 5.0? thanks!

Of course, the ultimate goal is to have this ported to 5.0 as a 2.0 version.

However, the typical answer to the "when" question is that it will have to wait until either:

  • Someone submits a patch, or
  • We have free time to do the port, or
  • A client sponsors the porting effort.
