Release date: May 21st, 2012
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 the release notes for 1.9.0 for the final production-ready release.
OpenMRS 1.9.0 RC4 has a number of bug fixes in the core application and some bundled modules. Check below for the complete listing.
We have also made more improvements in the module to help you test this third release candidate using your existing data. Read more about it from: Release Testing Helper Module, and download it from here.
We strongly urge all developers/implementers to download OpenMRS 1.9 RC4 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 1.9 data model, and report on any errors than may occur in the upgrade script.
