Official HL7 Comm 0.8 Beta announcement

Well, I tried over the weekend, but got distracted with the noise from the website troubles. 0.8 is officially available now for testing. A few minor features will be added before the release version, but hopefully it will stay largely intact before then. Very little of the actually communication client code changed between 0.7 and 0.8, it was mostly feature additions and GUI cleanups, so if it worked for you before it should work now.

Feel free to try it out and let me know now how it works for you, especially if you experience bugs. One thing with the beta is that eventually I’ll remove the JNLP and you’ll be upgraded to the release version at that point. Here’s the link, I’ll be updating the application page shortly:

Install HL7 Comm 0.8 Beta (Java 1.4+)

Source and binary downloads likely won’t be available until 0.8 final is released.

Update: When I uploaded the beta I accidentally broke HL7 Anon. That is fixed again, sorry for any inconvenience. I’ll be redoing the JNLPs soon so that they don’t share common libraries, even if they are identical. This caused me to upload two libraries signed by different keys, which was my fault.
