After more than a year of intensive development we have completed ReportServer 2.0 and made it available for download on Sourceforge.
With a completely redesigned interface, many new features and more than 100 detail improvements, Report Server 2.0 further improves the ease and efficiency of your everyday reporting.
With the new Dashboard, users can easily build their own starting page that contains all the important data on a single glance. With the help of dagets (dashboard gadgets) you can add reports, quick links, webpages and other data onto your dashboard. You even generate multiple dashboards and switch between them with a single click.
Preview of Graphic Reports
The preview of Eclipse Birt and Jasper reports has been completely rewritten. It now shows the entire report exactly as it will appear on print and all this without any browser plugin necessary.
The needs and requirements of a reporting platform can be very specific and vary greatly between different companies. With ReportServer we have created a framework for reporting that allows to be customized to your company’s needs. With plugging into so called “Hooks” you can adapt extend not only the GUI but also tap into the inner workings of ReportServer to, for example, implement new features.
ReportServer stores its metadata in a database backend. Until now this meant that access to objects such as config files, scripts or report configurations was only possible via the web interface. Now we have added a second mechanism of accessing such data. ReportServer can be asked to start an integrated SFTP server that provides access to many of the objects within ReportServer via a virtual filesystem. This especially simplifies the work flow for report designers that can now easily upload and download design files (such as JRXML files for Jasper) via the SFTP server.
