Announcing CiviCRM 4.3.2

After a great CiviCon we're in the middle of a week-long sprint in northern California, with 30 people from around the world pitching in to help improve CiviCRM. Thanks to all those efforts we're releasing the second update to 4.3 today, with 49 small but important improvements. It is available for download now, and all site admins are encouraged to upgrade.

Noteworthy Bugfixes in 4.3.2:

4.3 Beta5 is here! Last chance for pre-release testing!

Announcing the final beta release of 4.3 for Drupal 6-7, Joomla 2.5.x and WordPress. Time to really put it through it's paces - we recommend upgrading a copy of your database and trying out all the usual (and unusual) things you normally do with your CRM to see how much better 4.3 makes your life (and hopefully that everything works as expected).

Announcing the New 4.3beta3 - thanks BugSmithers!

The CiviCRM community has reached another milestone: announcing the third beta release of 4.3 for Drupal 6-7, Joomla 2.5.x and WordPress. This has been a true community effort with people from around the world participating in Ye Bugsmithing Day - 45 issues were fixed as a result of that group effort. And in case you missed that one, look for an imminent announcement of the 2nd and final 4.3 bug hunt! Your help makes all the difference.

CiviCRM sprints: Why is helping the community so much fun?

If you follow the CiviCRM blog, you've probably seen a few articles about how much fun the sprints are and what a great time everyone has. Maybe you've thought to yourself, "That's not for me. I'm not a PHP programmer or a database fanatic." Well, I'm here to say that you, yes you can come to the sprint - if you don't write code you can help write the user guide. The only prerequisites are enthusiasm about CiviCRM and a willingness to help out (and a laptop). The food is great, the people are fantastic, and you will have fun, I promise.
