New aggregate fields were added: sum, min, max,
count, average, stddev. The file parsing API was
simplified. JRuby and iText were upgraded. A
"delete" menu item was added in the field picker
edit menu. The last-used layout engine is now
remembered. Release packaging and GUI bugs were
fixed. PDF font selection was improved. DataVision
now requires Java 1.4. Unneeded regex and XML jars
were removed. The code was moved from CVS to SVN.
This version fixes a problem where after changing a field's
format, it would disappear from report output after the
report was saved and reloaded. It also fixes a serious
subreport bug where when subreports were saved as part of
a report and re-loaded, they would not run properly. Another
subreport bug was fixed so that if a subreport has multiple
joins, "and" is put between them when generating SQL.
Reports with subreports will run faster, because subreport
query results are now cached. The MySQL test data
generator now properly generates upper-case names and
names with spaces.
This release adds a Formula Languages item in the Report
menu that brings up a dialog for editing the report's scripting
languages. It also adds a "Scripting Language" drop-down
menu to the formula editor, startup formula, and
suppression proc dialogs. It changes "ruby" to "Ruby" as the
language name in all example XML files and in
Scripting.java. There is documentation for the new and
changed dialogs. A problem with table object lookup which
caused an IllegalAccessException error when dragging fields
onto the report was fixed.
A default format and border can now be set for the entire report. Formulas are now run using the Bean Scripting Framework, and the report is exposed to formulas as a global object. An upgrade was made to JRuby 0.8.0. A number of code refactorings that didn't change behavior were made. Quotes were remvoed from around classpaths in datavision.bat. A documentation error that showed incorrect arguments for the PDFLE constructor was fixed.
