Hello all,

Debian/Testing has been frozen and is currently stabilizing
to eventually become a Debian/Stable release.

The current GNUmed version in Testing is 0.7 or to be exact
0.7.8 until yesterday. Release 0.7.9 fixed a nasty bug with
allergy handling where one allergy could overwrite another
if generated from the very same multi-component substance
intake entry. It has been quite an experience for the Debian
project to let the upgrade from 0.7.8 to 0.7.9 pass through
into an already frozen Testing since this was the first time
they had to deal with a potentially life-threatening bug in
one of their packages. However, everyone involved has acted
very responsibly and understanding which once again proves
Debian to be a highly reliable platform for medical

In the meantime we have released GNUmed 0.8 with 0.8.2 being
released today. However, GNUmed 0.8 will stay in
Debian/Unstable and NOT move to Testing until Testing became
Stable because it has not had the level of testing and
exposure to real world situations we would feel comfortable
with for it to become part of a long term Debian/Stable

However, assuming you point your sources.list files at
unstable mirrors you can of course install GNUmed 0.8 onto
existing Debian/Testing machines.

We do not anymore recommend the *current* Debian/Stable for
running GNUmed (although it is provably possible to run
GNUmed 0.7.9 under Debian/Stable today).
