  GNU Health 1.4.1 released
Medical Open Source Development Posted by Luis Falcon on Sunday October 30, 2011 @ 08:53 PM
from the dept.
GNU Solidario is happy to announce the release of GNU Health 1.4.1, in which we have incorporated support for PyPI, the Python Package Index

This version is compatible with the latest tryton release (2.2.0). Now GNU Health is also a set of python modules, fully integrated to the Python community.

Thanks to the magic of pip, and the help of the Tryton community ( Cedric Krier, et al ), installing the latest GNU Health version is as easy as running

pip install --user trytond_health_profile

This will install the requirements ( the tryton server and all the standard GNU Health modules ) automatically and in your "$HOME/.local" directory. I will be updating the installation process at the wiki today. The main site is the GNU Savannah where all the development and discussion takes place.

There are many improvements, bug fixes and news features, some of them :
  • CalDav compatibility (it allows complex calendar views and settings for appointments and hospitalizations)
  • Support for JSON RPC protocol
  • Fully Tryton 2.2 compatible
  • Enhanced Medication form
  • New Medicament categories
  • Medication pregnancy category
  • Included the latest WHO essential medicines (17th edition)
  • New translation engine (to be used with .po format)
  • Improved Laboratory model and functionality
    Thanks to all of you for contributing with your code, testing, translating and documenting the project !
