From Pub 590 under What's New for 2010:

"Conversions and rollovers to Roth IRAs. The modified AGI and filing status requirements for converting and rolling over amounts to a Roth IRA are eliminated."

You can read all about it here:

Starting in 2010 the income limitations for Roth conversions (not contributions) were eliminated, giving birth to the "backdoor Roth."
