Highlights of Last Week

  • Last week in our Developers Forum, we started the planning process for the OpenMRS 2.2 release. If you’re interested in the features under consideration, have a look at the meeting notes at https://wiki.openmrs.org/x/NwN-B. Additional feedback is encouraged – please share it with the dev@ mailing list.

  • @paul is looking for feedback about what we’d like to learn about web application security so he can help to recruit a speaker for the upcoming Developers Forum on 20 November. If you have feedback, please let him know as soon as possible.

  • Platform 1.11 release manager @k_joseph led and wrapped up a development sprint to resolve 27 issues that failed our user acceptance testing. Many thanks to everyone who participated! This week, work continues on Platform 1.11 and we need your help. Join our testing sprint to participate in the release!
