It is my pleasure to announce the release of OpenMRS 1.9.0 RC3 (Third Release Candidate) which you can get from the downloads page. It has a number of bugs fixed in the core application and some bundled modules. See changes since the second release candidate in the release notes.
We have also made more improvements to the module that helps you test this third release candidate using your existing data. Read more about it from: Release Testing Helper Module, and download it from here.
Please help us get there soon by giving feedback on this third release candidate. If you find any bugs, report them in our ticket tracking system.
If no major bugs are found, this will become the official 1.9.0 release in a couple of days.
Upcoming End Of Life Announcements:
The 1.6.x line will reach EOL with the next major release (1.9.0)
A big thank you to the 71 developers and all who have, in various ways, contributed towards this release!!!
On Behalf of the OpenMRS community
