The response to v1.5 has been very positive. I think we are starting to hit the sweet spot for most users. We've been getting a steady stream of bug reports in various components and have been averaging a new release every week. Most of the bugs have been relatively easy to fix, but there have been a couple of complex ones that we are still figuring out.

The project is getting a fair amount of traction on the joomla side. Elin W is pushing CiviCRM to its limits on the joomla side and ensuring that all the stuff works as advertised out there.

Over the past few months we've been consolidating our various domains (openngo.org, socialsourcefoundation.org) into one domain civicrm.org. We've also moved most of our infrastructure services from facilities in poland (a big thanx to michal, piotr and caltha.pl for setting this up and helping us grow) to our new hosting providers Electric Embers (they are incredibly helpful, very reasonable prices and do a great job serving the non-profit sector). Also a big thanx to the folks at Eggplant Active Media Cooperative who designed and implemented our new look and feel.

CiviNode is a module and API that exposes CiviCRM contacts, groups, and other CiviCRM object types to Drupal as nodes. It's designed to make CiviCRM easier to use and integrate with all of the Drupal tools and techniques you've come to know and love. For example, once you've mirrored a CiviCRM contact into Drupal, you will be able to:

* Catagorize it with taxonomies * Attach event or location information * Track what's happening with the contact with a work-flow * Control the way it displays by theming it.
