I’ve just discovered Features 7.x-2.x, and if you’re still doing Features 7.x-1.x then I’d recommend upgrading. It’s easy to do, and 7.x-2.x contains a few new goodies. In particular:
- Fields instances and field bases have been separated, which avoids the problem you could get in 1.x where you if you exported the same field to two separate features then changed a setting your two features could fight for control of the setting.
- A much nicer interface for adding / removing items.
- The ability to write changes to disk from the UI: Under advanced options, fill out ‘Path to Generate feature module’ (unless you’re happy with the default) and click Generate feature. No more delete-download-copy-untar-delete!
