Views is in Drupal 8 Core!

Depends on modules [Drupal7]
Required by modules [Drupal7[

Quite simply, the most important contributed module in Drupal6/7 !

The Views module moves into core for Drupal8.

The ability to create query Views (database query reports) via a comfortable admin user interface with incredibly flexible control over the choice of queried content and the resulting display, and integration with countless other modules, is what helps make Drupal more powerful and more popular than any other fully-fledged Content Management System (CMS) in the world today. WordPress can't even come close to touching it; it is not even in the running, thanks to Drupal Views.

And Earl Miles (a.k.a. merlinofchaos) Views creator, VDC chief architect, and his Views and CTools team have made many other excellent contributions to Drupal.

From Drupal creator Dries Buytaert:

'Views is the #1 most-used contributed module, installed on nearly 70% of all Drupal websites. The ability for non-developers to create listings for pages, blocks, calendars, photo galleries, and more through a web interface, complete with developer-friendly features such as caching, is one of the primary differentiating factors that makes Drupal shine.'

For once I completely agree with Dries ! Dr Darren (Webel IT Australia)
