December 22, 2011

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 release notes for 1.9.0 for the final production-ready release.

Whats New Since 1.8

Version 1.9.0 of OpenMRS has three (3) major changes. (A larger list can be found below.)

  • Grouping encounters into visits
  • Multiple providers per encounter

Community Input

We welcome any user to download OpenMRS 1.9 Beta and try it out, give us feedback, and potentially bug reports on this release. We especially ask current users to try this version out on their own database and with their custom modules.

If you are the lead developer of a module, then you should test out your module against this 1.9 beta, so if you need to make any changes, you can do so well before the final release.

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).

We do not recommend using this in a production environment!

Release Testing Helper Module

We have also released this module to help you test 1.9 beta using your existing data.

Bundled Modules

These modules are bundled with the 1.9 beta openmrs.war download. They will be started automatically and can be removed if they are not wanted.

User Interface Changes

  • The Manage Global Properties link has been changed into Settings where the global properties are grouped according to category. The old style of listing all without grouping can be accessed from the Advanced Settings link.
  • The Encounters tab on the patient dashboard is replaced with Visits unless you set the visits.enabled setting to false.

Non-Backwards-Compatible Changes for Developers

Developers take note: unfortunately 1.9 includes a few non-backwards-compatible changes from 1.8.

  • Form no longer has the xslt and template properties. Use the new FormResource API.
  • Encounter provider is no longer a mere person but has to be in the new provider tables. So a provider may not be a person. And each encounter provider has to be associated with an encounter role.

The module developer migration guide can be found at: Module Developer Migration Guide
