Hello all,

I am glad to be able to announce the immediate availability
of the GNUmed 1.8.0rc2 Prerelease.

Downloads available from:

This is a special release in the following respects:

        1.8 does NOT need a new database over 1.7 !

                Yes, you can (and must) run it against your existing
                v22 database. This will NOT change over the lifetime
                of any future 1.8 releases.

        1.8 requires Python 3.

                Debian $> apt install python3

                Look for packages for your distribution.


        1.8 requires wxPython 4.

                Debian $> apt install python3-wxgtk4.0

                Look for packages for your distribution.


You can use a mix of 1.8 and 1.7 clients against the same
databse in parallel. This is the whole point of this release:
Enable users to get their python3/wxpython4 installations all
set up and possibly find any remaining bugs (I have run this
code in production without issues for several MONTHS).

Database upgrade (existing DB):

        Not needed (see above).

        Make sure, however, you have installed the latest v22
        fixes from the latest 1.7/v22 release.

Database installation (new DB):

 If you wish to install a fresh database (either if you do
 not yet have a database or if you want to ignore and
 OVERWRITE any existing GNUmed databases) you have several
 options all of which WILL DELETE existing databases !

 Your platform may provide new server packages in which
 case you can likely use the systemwide install script:

        $> gm-bootstrap_server

 If you are installing from a server tarball you can use the
 script provided in the download:

        $> cd .../server/bootstrap/
        $> ./

 or, again, the network based installer:

 More information on installation is found here:
