Steps detailing a patch release (using rel-412 (version 4.1.2) is given as an example):

1. Ensure the database changes have been added to the sql/patch.sql(and database.sql for new installs) file (and tests that it works)
2. Increment the $v_realpatch variable in the version.php file
3. Build a zip file of all files that have been modified in rel-412 (since the official 4.1.2 release)
4. Release the zip file
  • Place it in the patch directory on the website
  • On the OpenEMR Patches download page, place the description and a link to the patch file.
  • Announce the release in the forums, on the trackers(github and sourceforge), rocketchat, on the Twitter Feed, on the Facebook page, on the Google+ page, on the Diaspora, on the LinkedIn OpenEMR group,, and announce to registered users.
