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 in the upcoming major release (1.8.0) and help discover any possible obscure new bugs.
OpenMRS 1.8.0 RC has a number of bug fixes made in the past couple of weeks in the core application and some bundled modules like reporting and form entry. Check below for the complete listing of the bug fixes in the core application.You can download OpenMRS 1.8 RC to try/test it.
We do not recommend using this in a production environment!
We welcome any user to download OpenMRS 1.8.0 RC 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 1.8 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) Signup for an OpenMRS ID
