CAVE: Patient Safety Issue described within. Please install ASAP.

Hello all,

I am glad to be able to announce the immediate availability
of the GNUmed 1.3.7 Maintenance Release. It features the
following bug fixes and minor improvements:


 FIX: exception on substance intake w/o start date [thanks Jim]
 FIX: faulty SQL in lab phrasewheel [thanks Jim]
 FIX: exception on saving modified organization [thanks Jim]
 FIX: validity check on substance discontinuation date [thanks Jim]
 FIX: exception on accessing org unit comm channel comment [thanks Jim]
 FIX: failure to properly delete org *units* [thanks Jim]
 FIX: failure to properly edit substance intakes [thanks Jim]

 IMPROVED: show substance intolerances in magenta rather than yellow [thanks 

Special thanks to Jim Busser who relentlessly unearthed
bugs, in particular this Patient Safety Issue:

 When editing a substance intake entry it looked as if it 
 was possible to edit the substance taken. The substance
 part of the edit was not saved, however. This could lead to
 the following problem: If the user attempted to switch to a
 lower strength of a substance but simultaneously increase
 the dose thereof GNUmed would save the increased dose but
 NOT the lower strength. If not detected this might have
 made the patient take higher dosages than what was

 GNUmed now clearly shows that one can NOT edit the
 substance taken.
