May 30, 2019 - HAPI FHIR 3.8.0 (Hippo) Released - The next release of HAPI has now been uploaded to the Maven repos and GitHub's releases section.
This release features a number of significant performance improvements, and has some notable changes:
- A new interceptor framework has been added. Existing interceptors will continue to work, and no code changes are needed in order to use this new version, but existing interceptors can be modified to use the new framework and can then take advantage of even more functionality. Updated migration documentation will be produced in the coming weeks.
- A security issue in the hapi-fhir-testpage-overlay (the web-based testing UI that powers hapi.fhir.org and can be embedded into other applications) has been corrected. Users of this module are recommended to upgrade right away.
- The hapi-fhir-jpaserver-starter project now uses a properties file for much easier configuration. Please use this project as the basis for any new JPA Server projects, as we are deprecating the existing duplicate hapi-fhir-jpaserver-example project.
- A number of improvements have been made to the validator.
As always, see the changelog for a full list of changes.
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release!
