It’s been a couple of weeks since the release of GNU Health series 1.8, and we’re thrilled on the evolution of the system, and its adoption by the community.
This latest series is compatible with Tryton 2.6.x and has many improvements, in the core and reporting modules, among others. As usual, the migration from previous versions are included.
The other good news is that, being compatible with Tryton 2.6 allows the connection from mobile devices with the Android Operating System .
Thanks to the great Tryton development framework, and to the fantastic job done by SCIL in the development of the Android client for Tryton, GNU Health servers can now be accessed directly from your mobile device.
There are more good news on the way. The web client is also around the corner, and we will have 3 different ways to connect to GNU Health. From the standard GTK interface, the Android client, or your web browser.
Make sure you upgrade your database to the latest GNU Health version. The upgrade scripts and the instructions are always incorporated in the new version. The upgrade process is an integral part of GNU Health and, of course, it’s completely free.
e-Health for all !
