So maybe filling out forms isn't anybody's idea of a good time, but at least building them can be fun, thanks to the shiny new version 3 of Webform CiviCRM Integration!

Quick Recap:

If yours isn't among the 700+ sites using Webform Integration, this Drupal module is a smart form-builder and processor that answers the following question: "CiviCRM has built-in forms for stuff like event registration and contributions, but what about collecting CRM data on my ________ form?" Fill in the blank with just about anything - survey, petition, enrollment, application, support, opt-in, you name it. You can use it to collect and update information about contacts, relationships, cases, activities, event participants, group subscriptions, tags, and custom data.

So What's New?

Version 3 has major improvements for working with existing contacts and option lists, a new look, UI improvements, and other enhancements....

Thanks to a successful Make-it-Happen campaign the 4.1 release comes with a much improved and super flexible approach for running Civi's critical back-ground processing tasks. These tasks include keeping membership statuses up to date and sending renewal reminders, sending scheduled CiviMail mailings, sending pledge payment reminders, and more. I've spent the past 10 days testing and documenting the new "consolidated cron" functionality, and the good news is that I think it fulfills the promise of providing a convenient and friendly way to administer and run all the required tasks for a site.

 

The "bad" news is that these improvements are NOT backward compatible. The set of PHP scripts which were previously used to run these tasks have all been deprecated (and moved to a 'deprecated' directory). This means that all CiviCRM-related cron jobs will stop working as soon as any site is upgraded to 4.1...
