Release Notes 1.9.0 RC3

Release date: April 12th, 2012

This version of OpenMRS is a prerelease and not considered worthy for production use. Its function is to give users an idea of what to expect and help discover any possible obscure new bugs.
See the release notes for 1.9.0 for the final production-ready release.

What's new since 1.9 RC2?

We have also made more improvements in the module to help you test this third release candidate using your existing data. Read more about it from: Release Testing Helper Module, and download it from here.

Providing Feedback

We strongly urge all developers/implementers to download OpenMRS 1.9 RC3 and try it out, give us feedback, and potentially bug reports on this release. We especially ask current users try this version out on their own database and with their custom modules.

Even if you don't have time to do any thorough testing, we'd really appreciate it if you can upgrade a copy of your database to the 1.9 data model, and report on any errors than may occur in the upgrade script.

If a new bug is found, send an email to one of the mailing lists or create a new JIRA ticket (click upper right icon, signup for an ?OpenMRS ID first)
