Forge is the official HL7 FHIR Profile & Conformance editor.
Forge 22.0 for R4 is a minor update with some compliance & stability improvements.
This Forge release supports FHIR R4.
We publish separate Forge releases for FHIR DSTU2, STU3 and R4. Each release only supports a single FHIR version and is updated separately. Different releases can be installed side-by-side on the same machine.

Forge now requires the .NET Framework 4.7.2 (updated from 4.6).

Type slicing: do not rename slicing introduction element
Forge only renames named slices of a type slice element, constrained to a single type.
Forge no longer renames the original type slice element, even if constrained to a single type.
Note: In R4, the original (
[x]) type slice element may specify constraints on the list of allowed types.
Type slicing: do not initialize default discriminator when slicing description is specified

[x]) element, Forge will automatically initialize the default discriminator,
but only if both the discriminator and the slicing description are empty.
Type slicing: fix child extension on named type slice
Fix a bug where Forge would mangle the element path of a profile extension element that is a direct child
of a type slice constraint with a renamed path, e.g.

Exclude core extensions on
ElementDefinition from output
Special extensions on
ElementDefinition as specified on the core resource and type profiles,
such as elementdefinition-translatable,
are no longer included in the generated output.
Note: extensions on
ElementDefinition itself are not visible in the user interface.
We are considering implementing support for a limited set of well-known core extensions
StructureDefinition in a future release.

after saving changes to disk, due to aggressive caching. This has now been fixed.
DirectorySource.Refresh() now also invalidates the
