Announcing CiviCRM 3.4.8 and 4.0.8
The latest post on the CiviCRM blog announces the release of versions 3.4.8 and 4.0.8 of this popular open source CRM system (as used by Bristol Wireless. Ed.), which runs of the Drupal or Joomla content management systems (CMS).
The developers also announce that this release features a number of bug fixes. In addition, CiviCRM 3.4 and 4.0 introduce a new and improved API 3, designed from scratch by non-core CiviCRM developers (i.e. people who actually use the API calls on a daily basis). Existing code utilising API 2 calls should still work, but users are encouraged to test and upgrade it to the new API 3 calls – API 3 is the one that will be developed in the future, while API 2 will only receive critical fixes.
The new releases can be downloaded from SourceForge. The filenames include the 3.4.8 and 4.0.8 labels, e.g. civicrm-3.4.8-drupal.tar.gz or civicrm-4.0.8-joomla.zip. Make sure you download the correct version for either Drupal or Joomla. Once again users are reminded that 4.0.x works with Joomla 1.6 and Drupal 7, while 3.4.x works with Joomla 1.5 and Drupal 6.
