With the release of OpenMRS 2.10, it’s about time we put some stakes in the ground for what we think we can accomplish within the rest of 2020. We’ve got some great efforts going on with Microfrontends and FHIR along with growing interest in ETL. And there are some GSoC projects focused on advancing the platform and to create new modules. Can some of these efforts contribute to the community’s technical road map?
Imagine 2020 is coming to an end. Maybe your attending a (virtual?) OMRS20. As you look back at 2020, what developmental milestones do you expect have been reached?
- Who is using Microfrontends? Is the MF module shipping with the latest release of the OpenMRS RefApp?
- Does the platform now include the latest version of the FHIR module supporting R4?
- Have we made any specific steps closer to being cloud-ready or supporting clustering (e.g., removing context dependencies from data objects or moving away from singleton pattern in the API)?
- Have we upgraded some critical libraries or upgraded to supported version of Hibernate or Spring?
- Does OpenMRS support Java 11 (without losing supported for Java 8)?
We’d love to hear your ideas & expectations of what you think the community should prioritize in the remainder of 2020.
