Announcing the release of 4.6.0 of the CHT Core Framework

We’re excited to announce the release of 4.6.0 of the CHT Core Framework

New features include allowing contact selectors in forms to be filtered by descendants of the current contact as well as official configuration files and scripts for deploying the CHT to Kubernetes! We’ve also implemented loads of other improvements and fixed a heap of bugs.

Read the release notes for full details.

Following our support policy, versions 4.3.x and 4.4.x are no longer supported. Projects running these versions should start planning to upgrade in the near future. For more details read our software support documentation.

Check out our roadmap to see what we’re working on next.


Thanks team for the new version. However on Apple M1, we’re still facing this same issue with 4.6.0 too so we can only work with v4.3.2 for now.

@sookwalinga thank you for following up on the Apple M1 Docker Helper issue. The good news is that the fix will be available in 4.7. Meanwhile, please follow these instructions to run Docker Helper on Apple Silicon with latest CHT Core:

  1. run the helper script: ./
  2. Choose “yes” to create a new project: Would you like to initialize a new project [y/N]? y
  3. Choose “no” when prompted to use the latest: Do you want to run the latest CHT Core version (4.6.0) [Y/n]? n
  4. when the large list of versions is shown select a version that is between 4.0.0 and 4.3.2 or above 4.7.0. As 4.7.0 is not yet out, you can choose 8841-multiplatform-images until it is released!

Tagging @paulalogno as well for Apple M1 updates.

Thanks @andrablaj for the heads-up. Yes we’re working with v4.3.2 for now, looking forward to 4.7.0 :slight_smile:
