We are pleased to release the new stripe extension version 6.0 just in time for the implementation of the new European PSD2 payments directive that enters into force on the 14th September.
The new release uses the Stripe Elements library which simplifies PCI compliance and allows SAQ-A certification for most sites. The extension now supports 3d secure and other client-side authentication/validation methods.
Thank you again to all who participated in our Summer Survey. We are currently reviewing the results and already have some exciting ideas that we hope to present to the community soon, so watch this space!
We have a Winner
We would like to congratulate Larry Kuttner, IT Manager at Northeast Sustainable Energy Association, who is our lucky winner of a $500.00 donation to the non-profit organization of his choice.
Credit goes to other people but I wanted to point out a new setting now available as of 5.17.0 that should speed up most sites. At worst it should have no effect. It's like that button on traffic light poles - you press it and sometimes it does nothing but sometimes the light changes faster. Either way you're no worse off, except they now have your fingerprints on file.
As the CiviMobile version numbers continue to increment, the user experience of the mobile application improves with exponential growth. Members of NGOs and nonprofits are no longer office bound by a desktop CiviCRM application. What they have instead is a core CiviCRM functionality at their fingertips every time and everywhere. Our new release of CiviMobile 4.1 further refines the app introducing custom field functionality, among other updates.
What Is New
This blog post explains how you could insert data from a CSV file into CiviCRM. We use Pentaho Data Integration to read the CSV file and to call a Form Processor in CiviCRM.
This blog post is an example and when you follow the steps described in this post you can run the same import as me.
Pentaho is a tool to extract and transform data.
The form processor is an extension to create end points for forms in CiviCRM. Those end points can then be called through the api.
CiviCRM version 5.17.0 is now out and ready to download.
Big thanks to Andrew Hunt and Alice Frumin from AGH Strategies for putting up together release notes for this version.

Olá desde Lisboa! Sou o Josh e sou um membro da equipa principal do CiviCRM. Estou neste momento sediado em Lisboa e, após conversar com algumas organizações sem fins lucrativos, comecei a pensar organizar um encontro mensal em Portugal para dar a conhecer o CiviCRM e também para dar formação e apoio. Usas CiviCRM ou estás interessado em aprender? Vives em Lisboa?
