GNU Solidario, Medical and Debian GNU/Linux

Before the end of the year we will witness three major milestones : 
  • Medical 1.0
  • OpenERP 6.0
  • Debian GNU/Linux 6.0
In this blog I write about the importance of Debian in our organization, GNU Solidario.

We, GNU Solidario, have been using Debian GNU/Linux for many years, not only in our installations, but in our implementations, as well as mirroring the repositories for Argentina.

This entry is a tribute to the Debian community, which has been always at the heart of Free Software, and today is the source for many linux distributions (including Ubuntu).
Here are some pictures when we installed some years ago Debian GNU/Linux in two rural schools in Santiago del Estero.






Thanks to Debian for all these years of contribution to the community, as a truly Free Operating System.
If you are about to get into GNU/Linux, try Debian, it's very stable; has a great community and it's truly free ! Visit http://www.debian.org

    Release of Medical 0.1.3 and OpenERP v6 integration

    I'm happy to announce the release of Medical 0.1.3, with includes bug fixes and improvements in Patient Hospitalization Management, Laboratory Administration and PoS / Billing, among others.



    It all looks like that Medical v1 and OpenERP v6 will come out very closely in dates.


    For the last weeks, I've been working on adapting Medical to the upcoming version of OpenERP v6. I have work on the code, the views and the documentation, so I can say now that most of the code is v6 compatible ( including wizards).

    Medical 0.1.3 has been released today. From this point on, all the active development (trunk) will be done in OpenERP / OpenObject v6.


    The current trunk has been moved to branch openerp5. This will be based in medical 0.1.3 and it's a maintenance version, so bugfixes will be applied to it.

    I invite all of you who are actively developing Medical to download the latest OpenERP repository and install Medical on it.  Please document the new functionality on the Wiki (http://medical.wiki.sourceforge.net). I already documented the installation process for Medical under OpenERP v6.

    This approach is the best way to keep Medical uptodate with the latest OpenERP developments, improvements and functionality. Of course, we will keep the 5x version for people that don't want to migrate at this point.

    The new online demo of Medical version , compatible with openerp v6 will be available soon at the GNU Solidario portal. Same user, ports, etc..
