Announcing ActiveReports 7 beta!

Monday, GrapeCity released the beta version of the next version of ActiveReports!  We’re still putting up all the web materials, however you can go to the forum post with the announcement and download the beta now and read up on it while we’re working on that.

New in this version is a feature we call Fixed Page Layout.  These type of reports are suitable for any type of report where you want a highly structured, page-centric design.  Think of invoices, prospectus reports, insurance forms, bills, etc.

This version also brings a merger between the product I’ve been managing since practically starting at Data Dynamics, Data Dynaimcs Reports; and ActiveReports.  Though we’re bringing so much more to the product than a simple merger of the two reporting technologies that we’re not really going to talk about AR7 in this way.

I also started a series of blog posts that will detail the new features in AR7 and I’ll be flying to Raleigh to record some videos next month….all-in-all this is going to be an exciting release!
