Release Date: Monday March 6th, 2017

This version of the OpenMRS Platform is not intended for use by implementations running reference application other than OpenMRS 2.1, because it has several incompatible changes that will break some modules.

 Thanks Daniel KayiwaDengfeng LiDimitri RIvange Larry NdumbeMark GoodrichRafal KorytkowskiRebecca LauShreyans Sheth and Wyclif Luyima for these fixes.


What's New

This release is "OpenMRS Platform 1.10.5" and is a maintenance release version of the under-the-hood OpenMRS API that follows 1.10.4.

For the time being, we are in an awkward phase, where the legacy UI remains within the OpenMRS Platform and the new OpenMRS UI has not fully replaced the legacy UI. As a result, many implementations will continue to use the platform without the new web application and people will continue to be confused by the naming of "OpenMRS Platform". We are working hard to resolve this by OpenMRS 2.3, when implementations will be able to upgrade into the new application and the legacy UI can be retired from the platform.

To upgrade from a pre 1.10 version, you will certainly need to read Prepare for Upgrading From a Pre-1.10 to 1.10 or Later Version
