Product history

OpenClinic GA has been developed since 2006 by Belgian company Medical eXchange Solutions, and the company states the source code for the software was opened up to the public in December 2008[3]; however, it's not clear where that code was offered. The first verifiable stable release of OpenClinic GA was version 3.54.6, released to Sourceforge on September 17, 2010[1]; the project was started there four days prior.[4] Development of the Windows version has continued since; the last known Linux distro was in May 2011, and development of the Linux version seems to have been discontinued.[5]
