features, among others :

* Real-time Pediatric Growth Charts reports
* Automatic Patient Critical Info display.
* WHO International Classification of Procedures in Medicine
* Add Italian as an official language
* Improved appointment management
* Signing medical documents (evaluations, surgeries, hospitalizations)
* Improved Neonatology module, and patient assignment to the newborn
* Include standard tags for pathology groups (such as "allergic" or
"infectious")

Many other "behind-the-scenes" activities have been conducted, such as
bugfixing, rewrite methods and classes, replace imaging libraries, ...

The language packs of the official languages are included in the GNU
Health package, with all the modules, so there is no need to download.
There are over 80 GNU Health language teams in Transifex. If you are a
language maintainer and want to include your language for the next
stable release, please send us a mail to health@gnusolidario.org .
