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!
Want to help CiviCRM integrate with Drupal8 (or Backdrop or WordPress)? Want a winter getaway and a chance to go skiing? Hey, you can have both!
Come join us for the CMS-Integration Sprint in Vail, CO Jan 30 to Feb 4 2016.
Big thanks for Nicolas Ganivet at CiviDesk for sponsoring this event and generously donating the venue!
We'll be working on:
If you are currently using 4.6.7 and your site uses ACLs to segment access to contacts you are strongly encouraged to upgrade. The 4.6.7 release included a regression in the ACL system which caused certain contact access permissions to behave improperly. The 4.4 LTS branch was unaffected.
The latest releases of CiviCRM 4.6 and 4.4 LTS include 2 moderately critical security fixes. While these issues are unlikely to affect the average CiviCRM site, it is recommended to upgrade to the latest version to keep your site as secure as possible.
At the code sprint after CiviCon Denver, Tyrell Cook and I tackled some much-needed updates to Civi's wysiwyg system. A wysiwyg editor (what you see is what you get) is the mini word processor you use to compose emails, activities, notes, and other rich-text in CiviCRM forms.
Q: Want to help the new CiviCRM StackExchange site succeed, but don't have spare time/brainpower for answering difficult questions?
A: That's okay! It turns out that the one thing this fledgling site needs the most is also the easiest thing you can do. Voting!
An important security update is being released for both the latest version of CiviCRM and the long-term-support version. We recommend you upgrade immediately to maintain the security of your site.

Whether you're just getting started with customizing CiviCRM or you already think you know everything about it, I invite you to spend a few minutes playing with the new API Explorer in 4.6. You'll be glad you did.
The team is pleased to announce the fifth stable release of the incredible CiviCRM 4.5 series. These release include a security fix and a number of other improvements.
The security issue only affects sites using the CiviCase component. Read the security announcement for details.
