Upgrade and Important Notes
If you are upgrading from a previous version of Mifos, please see Mifos 2.2 Upgrade Instructions for important information that might impact your upgrade.
If you were using mifosBeanConfig.custom.xml file in your previous version of Mifos then you should check in the file, if there is a word "Voluntory". If yes, then you should replace all occurrences of "Voluntory" with the word "Voluntary". This situation is related to the fix of issue MIFOS-5218 .
Other Known Issues
There have been unconfirmed reports that deploying multiple instances of Mifos inside the same Tomcat installation may cause problems. We advise isolating deployments by only deploying a single instance of Mifos inside a single installation of Tomcat until further notice.
Minimum/Maximum days between disbursal and first repayment: These settings are not optional. Use the default values (1 for Minimum and 365 for Maximum) as a workaround. MIFOS-2005
Grace periods do not work for Loan products with Variable Loan Installments or with interest rate type - Declining Balance - Interest Recalculation. MIFOS-4742.
Variable Installment Loans Interest calculation and fees support are broken. If you are using loans with this checked, please carefully check if the repayment schedule is as expected. MIFOS-5086, MIFOS-5141.
Our standard BIRT reports assume a generic default database connection for the MySQL mifos database of user "mifos" and password "mifos". If your database is different than the default, you need to change your standard Mifos reports for them to connect to the right database. See MIFOS-2840 for more information.
BIRT reports do not work if you deploy Mifos WAR on Windows. MIFOS-5089. Will be fixed in 2.2.1.
Holidays are not changeable: Once you add a new holiday to Mifos, it cannot be edited or deleted. Use caution with this feature. MIFOS-1398
