A while back I did a lot of cleanup and bug fixing on the Core Import code. This clean-up facilitated some extra features to be added in a core extension - ‘civi-import’ which is in 5.55. In addition Greenpeace Germany sponsored improvements to CiviCRM to support background queuing and in 5.57 ‘civi-import’ can leverage that. I’m going to describe some of the enhancements in civi-import in this blog based on the 5.57 code base (not all are in 5.55).

For the past few weeks I have been sending a dev digest to the dev-civicrm mailing list at the end of each week (subscribe here). The dev digest is a mix of what's being worked on, what proposals people are looking for input on, what we need review or help with, or just whatever bubbles to the top.
