As Trellon gets ready for a new release of AbleOrganizer this week, I wanted to share this video from Drupalcon Austin.

Last week, we rolled out the first major feature for CRM Core, called CRM Core Donation. It's available for download now from Drupal.org. You can also download an install profile with CRM Core Donation pre-configured, along with sample forms and data to play around with. This is exciting news.
Today, Trellon released new versions of CRM Core and CRM Core Profile. Both of these modules include new features that are important for anyone looking to build modules that use CRM Core as a backend for storing contact information.
The documentation for CRM Core has been updated on Drupal.org. Now that the module has achieved a stable version, we have updated most of the information available about how to use it.
The CRM Core handbook contains information on the following topics:
Today marks the first official, stable release for CRM Core.
Many thanks to all the people who helped test and shared ideas to bring together a stable release, this would not have been possible without all the support and feedback from the community.
Last week was the third weekly sprint for the CRM Core Demo.
What did we accomplish in this past week?
- The repository was moved from trellon to github to facilitate community involvement.
- We created petition list for the online petition feature.
- Contact petitions /crm/contact/%/activity/petitions which shows the Contact petitions.
- We created a new field which will store Tags and started Petitions Primer view.
- A project lead reviewed the online petition feature and news feature.
Trellon ran its first two CRM Core sprints and we accomplished a lot. We really want CRM Core to be a project shared and owned by a community of people with aligned goals for a CRM framework. By hanging in the IRC channel #drupal-crmcore, we'll be able to share best practices and pitfalls to avoid.
What is CRM Core?
CRM Core is a set of modules for managing contact records within a Drupal site, providing support for contacts, relationships and activities. It provides basic CRM system components and a framework for extending these components to build a custom system that will allow an organization to effectively meet their needs with respect to contact, relationship, and activity tracking.
