This release has fixes for some issues reported in the previous 4.7.21 release. We recommend upgrading to this latest version. 


Complete list of issues fixed in this release is available from here


Bugs fixed: 

Core CiviCRM

  • CRM-20561 Load Net_SMTP, Auth_SASL, Net_Socket via Composer (10622)

    This resolves an SMTP authentication issue by updating a patch for compatibility with the a newer release of Net_SMTP.

  • CRM-20829 Install requirements fail because of port string (10626)

    This fixes a bug where new, GUI-based installations failed in Drupal and WordPress if the MySQL credentials relied on the default (implicit) port.

Backdrop Integration

  • Improve Views checkbox value handling (37)

  • When creating a new Backdrop user, two corresponding CiviCRM contacts are created. (22)


And some more issues resolved. Check release notes for the complete list.



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.
