I am glad to be able to announce the immediate availability
of the GNUmed “御目出度う御座います” Feature Release !
Downloads available from:

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.

Database installation / upgrade:

Note that this release, as usual, DOES require a database
upgrade from v17 to v18 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/ 17 18

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 !
