GNUmed 0.4 series in Ubuntu

Karmic ships the GNUmed electronic medical record application. Both the client and the server part are included. Jaunty shipped a buggy version which would (user approved) call home and report the bug. That way we had a feeling how many people attempted to use GNUmed.

Karmic ships GNUmed client 0.4 series which is a lot more stable. So far noone has called home. That either means that GNUmed is indeed stable or noone is trying it :-)

As far as I know there are no statistics available on the downloads of the packages. Even the PPA don't have the feature unless I have missed something.

It is a little sad to be left in the dark how many people are looking at GNUmed.

GNUmed 0.6 release candidate out now

Hi all,

Karsten Hilbert has announced the first release candidate for GNUmed client 0.6. Major new feature for this release is prescription handling. We need your input and help.
