Neethling: What new features or enhancements can specifically Java developers look forward to in BIRT 2.3 with regards to aspects such as event handlers, and the report engine API?
Dodson: Certainly the most important feature for someone writing event handlers is the improved debugging support. BIRT 2.3 has also improved the Event handler for the Scripted data set to allow input parameters when implementing the event in Java.
Neethling: Thank you Virgil for joining me for this interview. I must say, BIRT 2.3 is a mamonth release and I would definitely encourage report developers to grab the latest Ganymede Eclipse IDE for Java and Report Developers. Is there anything you would like to add in closing?
Dodson: Thanks Schalk for conducting the interview. The latest version of Eclipse BIRT 2.3 can be downloaded from http://www.birt-exchange.com/modules/wfdownloads/ or http://download.eclipse.org/birt/downloads/.
