Interesting New Modules

Better Views Tables - Provides a style plugin for Views which extends the default tables integration and adds some new features: Improved markup for HTML5 sites Responsive table options.

Webform Feeds - adds the ability to use Webform submissions as a source for a Feeds importer.

Mobile Menu Toggle - Creates a block with a “Menu” link that, when clicked, initializes a jQuery slideToggle effect to hide or show the Menu Zone of the Omega Theme.

PDF Construction Kit - The purpose of this module is to create PDFs out of different nodes from the site. It allows you to select different nodes and render them as a single PDF out of those elements.

Render As - Adds the ability for elements to be rendered as a specific user and/or role(s), which can be used for the purposes of testing how content will be seen by another user or a user or a particular role without having to change users.

Mozilla Persona - This module adds Mozilla Persona functionality to your site. Users will be able to login and create an account using this system.

Views URL args - Use URL-provided arguments in views filter criteria, which is currently more flexible than Contextual Filters.

Two-Pass Tokens - “There are some contexts which are built up in the admin interface (Rules comes to mind), in which we want to pull in user-supplied content (in my case, the body of an email). A great feature would be to allow the user-generated content to support tokens in the same context in which it is used.”

Context Reaction: Main Menu - Allows the Context module to change the main menu of the site.
