Stable releases

1.4 stable

The official release OpenMRS 1.4.0 is now available for download at Downloads. This is our new stable release, replacing 1.3.4.

Important note: Upgrading to 1.4 will update your database in a way that cannot be undone, so you cannot go back to 1.3 after upgrading. Please be sure to backup your database before doing the upgrade so you have a way out.

Thanks to everyone who contributed code to this release, as well as to everyone who found and reported bugs. The following are lists of the new features and bugfixes that have happened since 1.3.0, along with their ticket numbers. (This is approximate--I may have missed some, and several of these have been backported to 1.3.x maintenance releases.)

I've highlighted a few new features that people may find interesting, as well as some improved compatibility (IE as a browser, Solaris as a server OS, and 4-component names for Latin American installations).

FormEntry Module 3.6.3 is included in the openmrs war file.
