Hi @phil, Any idea when DHIS2-14562 will be resolved on 2.39…?? The notes suggest the issue is not resolved in this release.

Hi @WaluQ

Note that the release in this thread is not a maintenance release, but rather a “hotfix” as described here: HOTFIX Versioning Convention.

DHIS2-14562 will be in the next 2.39 maintenance patch release, 2.39.2. We hope that will be out some time in May, but I don’t like to make promises for patch releases as many factors can cause them to slip.

Kind regards,

Hi @chisomo_salangwa ,

Depending on the scale of your implementation, the process for upgrading can vary in complexity.

We have a brief guide to the basic process here: Upgrading - DHIS2 Documentation
