The Tanzania Permanent Secretary Ministry of Health has approved the use of VIMS data. We are still working with them to obtain the data and will keep parties update. We hope we can use the data for a webinar as we will not have time to process/ingest the data prior to the Gavi Demonstration.
Aiming to release 3.3 by the end of March, we are in the last sprint and fixing the remaining features and blocker/critical bugs. Once completed we will conduct a full regression and begin the release process. If you would like to participate in the Release Candidate testing, please let Mary Jo Kochendorfer (Deactivated) know and review the 3.3 Regression & Release Candidate Test Plan for details on the process. We welcome all implementers and community members to participate.
What's next for 3.4? The following themes have been identified and the PC will discuss what is recommended.
Improve sustainability of codebase so the software can be used long-term even beyond the current developers or current core team
Strengthen process for continuous delivery (including automated testing)
Fulfillment and re-supply features and enhancements
User personalization and self-service (configuration, notifications, dashboards)
Note: Gap features will begin during 3.4 release cycle, but will continue for the year of the Gap project. Gap feature prioritization will determine which of these features are conducted within the current Gap project budget and timeline.
Respond to community requests and needs
Finalize stock based requisitions (not just for vaccines)
Continue working on vaccine features (distributions)
