Here at Wikimedia we’ve been avidly using CiviCRM for over two years now. Over that period we’ve seen it grow and mature as a platform for fundraising, contact tracking & mailings and have been wanting to make the platform evolve even more. Together with Civi community, we’ve worked to organize the early release of the CiviReport architecture for the 2.2 branch. Thanks go to the core Civi team for doing the backport and FourKitchens for contributing a wealth of new reports for us. You can read a full write up of the release at the CiviCRM blog.
For those of our readers who are interested in CiviCRM and are in the Bay Area, we’ve also started to organize regular user meetups. The first one had a great turn out and we’d love for both developers and users of CiviCRM to attend the next one on August 4th at 6pm.
