Every once in a while, we put together a polished package of the GNUmed program and attach a version number. This is called a release. It is a well-defined version with a fixed set of features. Releases come pre-packaged for easy installation. Although those packages are provided free of charge by the GNUmed FOSS project companies may decide to offer installation and maintenance support for any given version. This is independant of the GNUmed project itself. The GNUmed client can be configured to check and report on new releases via internet.
