Health Connect 2021.2 is a Continuous Delivery (CD) release. Although CD releases typically do not get maintenance releases, InterSystems is providing a maintenance release to update the OpenSSL library installed on Windows. On other platforms, the OpenSSL library is provided by the operating system and is not included in the install. Consequently, the 2021.2.1 maintenance release is for Windows only. The 2021.2.0 release remains the current release for all other platforms.
