Please find below a message we received from Steve Anderson (Salesforce Foundation) – good job Steve!

I’m happy to announce new releases of 3 of the Nonprofit Starter Pack packages—Contacts and Organizations, Households, and Recurring Donations.

I recommend installing these packages as they each include bug fixes.

They also include some nice new features:

  • Upgrading is easier
  • Replaced S-Controls in favor of VisualForce
  • Automatic Household Contact roles on Opportunities
  • Campaigns in Recurring Donations
  • Better handling of translations

You can see all the issues that I worked on for this release: http://code.google.com/p/npsp/issues/list?can=1&q=label%3AMilestone-pring10&colspec=ID+Type+Status+Priority+Milestone+Owner+Summary&sort=&mode=grid&
