It's time for another release of HAPI FHIR!

This release brings some good stuff, including:

  • A new feature called Partitioning has been added to the JPA server. This can be used to implement multitenancy, as well as other partitioned/segregated/sharded use cases.

  • The IValidationSupport interface has been completely redesigned for better flexibility, extensibility and to enable future use cases. Any existing implementations of this interface will need to be adjusted.

  • Many improvements to performance have been implemented

  • FHIR R5 draft definitions have been updated to the latest FHIR 4.2.0 (Preview 2) definitions

  • The Gson JSON parser has been replaced with Jackson for better flexibility and performance

As always, see the changelog for a full list of changes.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release!
