From GNU Solidario we would like to thank Sílex Sistemas for joining us in our GNU Health project !
“…Our commitment with the social contract of GNU Solidario also represents to us a recognition that software is much more than a business, but it is also a tool to guarantee the basic rights and the access to development and well being to mankind. Finally, it is a proof that it is possible to be ethical and to do good business.” Roberto Vasconcelos Novaes – Sílex Sistemas –

** Installation :
If you are installing GNU Health as the first time, follow the instructions in https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/GNU_Health/Installation
Note : The gnuhealth_install script tries to do a local installation, including the required Python packages. This version updates the python packages to one of the latest stable releases. If you are coming from a dedicated server for GNU Health, and used the official installation script, you should be OK. If you installed packages in a system-wide manner, then you would need to uninstall them before the update, otherwise the installation script won’t be able to upgrade them.
** Existing Installations : Upgrade procedure :
Follow the Upgrade Instructions in the Wikibook
** Official Languages.
GNU Health now includes English, Chinese, French, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish, as the official languages. The language packs of the official languages are included in the GNU Health package, with all the modules, so there is no need to download.
There are over 85 GNU Health language teams in Transifex. If you are a language maintainer and want to include your language for the next stable release, please send us a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
