Thanks to everyone pitching in over the past week we've released the first update to 4.3 today, with 42 small but important improvements. It is available for download now, and all site admins are encouraged to upgrade.

IMPORTANT: Payment notifications back to CiviCRM do not work properly for PayPal Website Standard transactions in 4.3.0 (this means the contributions will display as "Pending - Incomplete Transaction' even though the payment has been completed at PayPal). If your organization uses this payment method AND you've already upgraded to 4.3.0 - you should upgrade to 4.3.1 immedately.

CiviCRM is free, open source software made possible through contributions from people like you. If your organization benefits from using CiviCRM AND from the great new features in this release, please consider making a recurring contribution to support the project.


CiviCRM is more compatible than ever, this version has been tested to run with:

  • Drupal 7
  • Drupal 6 (community supported)
  • Joomla 2.5
  • Wordpress 3.4 and higher

New Installations
