  • July: Open development. Major initiatives may still be accepted for 4.7 if significant implementation work has been done.
  • August: Feature freeze.  Existing 4.7 initiatives should be mostly done, but there may still be some work on development/maturation/gaps/loose-ends. Bug fixes encouraged. New (minor) enhancements may be accepted, but this will grow stricter as the month progresses.
  • September: Stabilization. 2 or 3 alphas. Mostly bug fixes. Split off 4.7 from master.

The April sprint in Colorado produced a number of great initiatives, and a major factor was the alignment with the release: 4.6.0 was out; the roadmap for 4.7 was as clear as...

With 4.6 stable out the door, work began in earnest on the next release at last month’s Colorado sprint. Both the core team and key community contributors arrived at the sprint with specific projects they wanted to work on for 4.7. Great progress was made at the sprint and several of these projects are set to become elements of the 4.7 release.

Having the 4.6 release out was a key factor in allowing folks at the sprint to focus on innovative improvements to the platform. With that in mind, we’re setting target dates for 4.7 stable to be released prior to the UK sprint in mid October. Here’s the target timeline:

  • Feature freeze - Late June
  • Alpha release - Early August
  • Beta release - Early September
  • Stable release - Early October

These are rough dates and subject to change. However,  if you’re planning on funding or contributing code for a new feature for 4.7, take particular note of the Feature Freeze date (late June). If...

CiviCRM v4.5.7 was released on March 3, 2014. The release was generally valid and safe, but some fixes were incorrectly omitted from v4.5.7. We're releasing a correction, v4.5.8.
