Release Date: Friday May 22nd 2015
This version of the OpenMRS Platform is not intended for use by implementations running reference application other than OpenMRS 2.0.
This release is "OpenMRS Platform 1.9.9" and is a maintenance release version of the under-the-hood OpenMRS API that follows 1.9.8. There are some database changes between this version and 1.9.8 introduced in TRUNK-4573.
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.
Who is this release meant for?
Implementations that are running OpenMRS 2.0 or implementations that are running plain OpenMRS Platform 1.9.x.
