Community Input

We welcome any user to download OpenMRS 1.7 Alpha 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 1.7 data model, and report on any errors than may occur in the upgrade script.
