Firefox is at version 52, Chrome is at 55, where does the number inflation game end?

Let the countdown begin! This April, the CiviCRM core team proudly announces we're going negative! It works for politicians, why not your favorite CRM for the Civic sector?

“When they go high, we'll go low.”

From now on, instead of counting up toward ever-inflated numbers, each CiviCRM release will be lower than the previous version. We'll be counting down just like people did in their calendars before the year 0 AD.

“Negative is the new positive.”

We're sure you'll have lots of questions about this exciting negative development, and the core team is here to answer them:

Q: What inspired this change?
A: We really wanted to lower the bar for people to get involved with CiviCRM, while minimizing the impact of each new version. Downgrading (formerly known as upgrading) is now easier than ever.

Q: How do I downgrade to the new version?
A:...

We're pleased to announce availability of CiviCRM v4.7.13 and v4.6.23.

This release was heavily influenced by the contributors from the sprints in Maryland and Edale and benefited from an extended release-candidate period. Combining the efforts of on-site and face-to-face contributions, this release addressed over 100+ JIRA issues and 170+ pull-requests.

Given the breadth of work, it is difficult to summarize this release, but you can find more information in the JIRA issue tracker  and the Github patch tracker:

Good evening. (Or, for folks in America… good afternoon. For folks in Oceania, good morning.) I'm writing from the CiviCRM sprint in Edale (UK), and it’s the height of apple season. In an ordinary year, the local folks here would be shaking the apple trees, getting a bit tipsy on cider, and discovering gravity. But this year, an influx of visitors from around the UK and Europe (and the broader CiviSphere) have come to make this pastoral setting even more beautiful: it’s the land of PR-review and testing.

But that’s not all! We recently had a great sprint/ho-down in Middletown, Maryland, and the two events have produced a huge amount of work. We’re pleased to publish the release candidate for 4.7.13:

CiviCRM 4.7.x has made significant progress towards supporting PHP 7, MySQL 5.7, and Ubuntu 16.04. I'm pleased to announce the availability of the release-candidate for v4.7.12.

These improvements were made possible with the collaborative efforts of several people and organizations, including Mark Burdett (EFF), Mattias Michaux, Seamus Lee (Australian Greens), the New York State Senate, and the CiviCRM core team (Jitendra Purohit and me).
