NextReports 6.0 released
NextReports 6.0 suite was released with new features, a lot of improvements and bug fixes.
Starting with this version a new type of report can be created: Value Indicator. This type of report allows to follow a single value inside a specific interval. It looks like a simple gauge and can be also defined through the Wizard tool from NextReports Designer.
Server Values Templates for reports can contain now a Date Interval (start date, end date). This interval can be one of Yesterday, Today, Current Week, Previous Week, Current Month, Previous Month, Current Year, Previous Year and Last. Date Interval from Template is also used by scheduler being computed at run time.
NextReports Server can now send alerts (emails) if some condition is met. This can be achieved by scheduling alarm or value indicator reports and use a special type of distribution called Alert.
NextReports Server was also internationalized with support for English, French and Romanian. But you can add your desired language just by translating a properties file.
Login page has a new "Forgot password" feature, which will help a user to reset his password if he lost it.
