A new release of NextReports was published. Version 4.1 solves some bugs and brings new features.

Some designer new features are:

  • An SQLite driver and it's corresponding dialect were added.
  • More properties for charts like pattern property for y column tooltips, main font property, xaxis and yaxis color properties.
  • Also, this version allows to use hidden parameters inside other not-hidden parameters even if they are not used in the main query.
  • Inside the designer every empty cell is considered to be text, not null, this allowing for fast property settings on empty cells. Previously, you had to insert a new text element and then you could format the cell.
  • A history of all selected colors inside the designer is saved for reuse for the time the designer is not closed.

Some new server features are:

  • Automatic login from other applications. NextReports Server does all the users and groups synchronization process under the hood. So when you login to your application, you can access the Next server and you will be logged in without entering your credentials.
  • From 4.1 version, it is possible to define drill down chains for table reports. Also you can search for drill down reports.
  • To speed up the response, besides previously widget cache used by dashboards, a new cache for all business entities was created.
