from the dept.
I am glad to be able to announce the immediate availabilit of the GNUmed 1.2.0 Feature Release.

Downloads available from:


and http://wiki.gnumed.de Digg this article

Client installation:

Easily installable packages for your platform of choice
will be available shortly.

Meanwhile you can run the client from a downloaded tarball
or use the net based client installer:


which you need to download, make executable, and run.

More information available here:


Database installation / upgrade:

Note that this release, as usual, DOES require a database
upgrade from v16 to v17 if you already have a database and
wish to retain the patient data you documented therein. For
uprading you can use the script provided in the tarball:

.../server/bootstrap/upgrade-db.sh 16 17

Alternatively, you can use the network upgrader:


which you need to download, make executable and run.

If you wish to install a fresh database (without upgrading
an existing one) you can use the install script:


or, again, the network based installer:


Note that both ways WILL DELETE existing databases !
