Join us during our Documentation Dash (remote sprint) on Sunday 27th July and Monday 28th July to help get the new edition of the User and Administrator Guide ready for release at the same time as the stable version of 4.5.

4.5 beta 2 has just been released, so the arrival of a stable version of 4.5 is not far off.  When that happens we want to publish a new edition of the User and Administrator Guide that includes all the new features, a totally revamped Membership section and other updates.

Eight people worked on documentation during the Tahoe sprint in April/May 2014, and we made great progress.  However, some of the new features, notably the new CiviCase UI, didn’t exist at that time and there were other issues we didn’t quite finish, so there is still work to do.

We have set up a board showing the issues for this sprint. You will see that there is something for everyone. If you can join us, please 'sign up' by commenting on this blog post....

Recently I was asked to compile a list of all CiviCRM releases since 3.1.0, identifying which were security releases so that we could make sure clients' sites were secure. The organization I work for (Freeform Solutions) is focused on doing sites for other non-profit organizations, many of whom are still running older versions of CiviCRM due to budgetary or other constraints, so we wanted to be sure that no one was running a version known to contain security vulnerabilities. Since this seemed like the sort of resource that might be useful to other CiviCRM users, I'm sharing it here.

Of course, the simplest approach is probably just making sure any given client is running the latest release of their particular CiviCRM version (4.3.x, 4.2.x, etc.). But this isn't always reliable (as pointed out by Herb in a comment below), because security fixes are not always applied to older versions (currently, versions prior to 4.2 are not being updated...
