Core CiviCRM

  • Support custom-data sub-type on entity-form (for activity/relationship types) (13311)

    This change makes it so that users can see and edit custom data for entity sub-types (like activity types and relationship types).

  • dev/translation#13 Language switcher for all (13240)

    This change introduces a new setting to the settings page for Localization "UI Languages" for users in monolingual mode (not using multilingual). Configuring this setting results in the Language Switcher block being shown (same as in multilingual mode).

  • dev/core#561 Replace jcalendar instances with datepicker (13241 and 13299) -- CONTINUED WORK

    These changes update the Scheduled Reminders Form and the Activity date and case start date fields to use the new datepicker widget.

  • Improved support for case variability in UF API calls. (13343)

    This change makes it so that the API will accept "UFgroup" and "ufgroup" as the entity.

  • Optimize CRM_Utils_String::ellipsify() method (13347)

    This change improves performance for the function that truncates a string and adds an ellipsis on the end.


  • dev-core#564 Differentiate case relationships in Contact Summary page (13189)

    On the Relationship tab of a contact, this change adds a case icon for each case relationship to denote that the relationship is related to a case. This icon is linked to the case so one can easily access the case from the relationship.

  • Cache case count when getting list of cases so query is executed once instead of three times (13368)

    This change improves performance on the Case Dashboard when listing cases.


  • Add default of TRUE for is_active on PaymentProcessor.create api. (13291)

    This change makes it so that when using the API with the entity Payment Processor and the action create, the parameter "is_active" defaults to TRUE like the UFGroup, CustomGroup, ComtributionPage entities do.
