The Core Team is very happy to announce that CiviCRM version 4.7 will be released on January 27th. Packed with both fixes and new improvements, 4.7 is the culmination of a lot of hard work and dedication from the community. If you’ve not demo’d it yet, check it out. If you’re planning to upgrade to 4.7 out of the gate, we encourage you to test a beta on a copy of your organization’s data and ensure that it’s bug-free for you. If it’s not, your testing can help the community squash any remaining 4.7 bugs!
We’re really psyched with all of the improvements in 4.7 and to have nearing release. Not only is it the best Civi yet, it also represents the last release in the 4.x series. What does that mean? It means that once 4.7 is out, tested and bug-free, the Core Team will turn its attention to CiviCRM version 5.0 and will begin tackling the platform-wide improvements laid out in the product roadmap.
Considering upgrading to 4.7? Don't wait, try it now! Upgrading a copy of your site now to 4.7 and leaving feedback on the beta testing forum will help ensure it is a rock-solid release.
