About GNU Health Patchsets

We provide "patchsets" to stable releases. Patchsets allow applying bug fixes and updates on production systems. Always try to keep your production system up-to-date with the latest patches.

Patches and Patchsets maximize uptime for production systems, and keep your system updated, without the need to do a whole installation.

For more information about GNU Health patches and patchsets you can visit

NOTE: Patchsets are applied on previously installed systems only. For new, fresh installations, download and install the whole tarball (ie, gnuhealth-3.0.1.tar.gz)

Summary of this patchset

  • The main issues resolved have to do with the age representation . There were issues with the generic timedelta method, so we reverted to the original relativedelta function, with deals better with ages. Timedelta (and its related Tryton fields.TimeDelta) is still used to show shorter periods of time, such as patient waiting times, duration of evaluations / surgeries, etc...

  • Bug fixes on reports, especially on dates, ages and date formats.

  • The gnuhealth-setup and and gnuhealth-control have been updated. These tools are also packaged separately, with their own numbering, so you can always download the latest version without the need of applying a patchset.

Refer to the List of issues related to this patchset for a comprehensive list of fixed bugs.

Updating your system with the GNU Health control Center

Starting GNU Health 3.x series, you can do automatic updates on the GNU Health and Tryton kernel and modules using the GNU Health control center program.

Please refer to the administration manual section ( )

The GNU Health control center works on standard installations (those done following the installation manual on wikibooks).
