It's come to our attention that the built-in license in the InterSystems IRIS and IRIS for Health 2021.1 Community Edition release is incorrectly set to expire on October 30, 2021.  

There is no impact to any production versions (the Community Edition is for development purposes), but developers will find that their instances stop running and should replace them with new ones.   For cases where replacing them is an issue, we have provided an override key.

    Introducing InterSystems Container Registry

    I am pleased to announce the availability of InterSystems Container Registry. This provides a new distribution channel for customers to access container-based releases and previews. All Community Edition images are available in a public repository with no login required. All full released images (IRIS, IRIS for Health, Health Connect, System Alerting and Monitoring, InterSystems Cloud Manager) and utility images (such as arbiter, Web Gateway, and PasswordHash) require a login token, generated from your WRC account credentials.

    UPDATE:  Developer Preview 7 has been released.

    Update 7 includes a number of stability improvements over previous updates and support for support for all of the planned 2022.1 features.  If you notice any problems at all, now's the time to let us know.  The docker pull commands below have been updated with the latest build numbers.  Enjoy!

    Developer Preview releases are now available for the 2022.1 version of InterSystems IRIS, IRIS for Health, and HealthShare Health Connect.

    As this is InterSystems' first developer preview release, let's take a moment to describe what these are.  The developer preview program enhances the previous IRIS preview program with approximately bi-weekly releases that add features as they are ready.  This allows us to get feedback on capabilities and enhancements as they're available.  You'll see below a list of enhancements that are targeted for 2022.1, which are not included in the first developer preview.  Look for those over the coming weeks. 

    We are eager to learn from your experiences with this new release ahead of its General Availability release. Please share your feedback through the Developer Community so we can build a better product together. 

    InterSystems IRIS Data Platform 2022.1 is an extended maintenance (EM) release. 2022.1 includes the many important new capabilities and enhancements have been added in 2021.2, the continuous delivery (CD) release, since 2021.1, the previous EM release. Please refer to the release notes for 2021.2 for an overview of these enhancements.

    Docker 20.10.14 (released March 23, 2022) changes the Linux capabilities given to containers in a manner that is incompatible with the Linux capability checker in InterSystems IRIS 2021.1 (and up) containers. 

    Users running Docker 20.10.14 on Linux will find that IRIS 2021.1+ containers will fail to start and the logs will incorrectly report that required Linux capabilities are missing.  For example:
