First CiviCRM release this year has happened: CiviCRM v. 4.7.15 and 4.6.25 are now released. 


Big thanks to Andrew Hunt from AGH Strategies for putting up together release notes for this version. 
The release notes for 4.7.15 can be accessed  here


Complete list of 4.7 contributors (it's a huge team!) can be found here.


  •  Core CiviCRM updates:
New API  for creating, modifying, and deleting states/provinces. More details. 
The list of dedupe exceptions now links to the contacts. More details.
  •  CiviContribute
Contribution search now allows filtering by contributions that are not in any batch of financial transactions. More details. 
The Aggregate Contribution custom search now uses the standard relative date filters. More details.
  • CiviEvent
Price sets now have a "Minimum Amount" field to accommodate situations where any one of several fields may be filled but a certain price threshold must be reached. More details. 
In addition to this list, this release includes over 40 bug fixes and improvements. 


If you are installing CiviCRM 4.7 from scratch, please use the corresponding automated installer instructions: users:: Prior to 4.7, CiviCRM forced to send out receipt emails regardless of configuration. From 4.7 onwards this will not happen and you should log into your interface and configure whether you want to send out receipts (in addition to those sent by CiviCRM).

Lybunt report users:: Some fields that were previously mandatory on Lybunt are now optional. On new reports they are on by default but you might need to check the fields you want are selected for existing reports.



If your site is highly customized with special code or theming for CiviCRM you will want to upgrade a test copy first and test your customizations. For everyone else, follow these simple steps to get yourself up and running with 4.7.
