medic-android#127: Image upload forms crash the app. This has been broken for some time and is not easy to fix while supporting Android 4.4 so the resolution has been deferred until we can make this breaking change. Reach out if you require this feature in the near future.
This upgrade can be rolled out remotely. Users will download the new version in the background and be prompted to reload the app when it’s ready. A small amount of data will be needed to download the new version.
Upgrading to this version does not require other applications to be upgraded. This release does not drop support for any hardware or software that works with the previous version.
This release modifies some CouchDB view definitions so we recommend you Stage the upgrade and wait for the views to be rebuilt before rolling it out to minimize downtime.
It is recommended to test the upgrade on a clone of your server first to ensure it works well for your application.
