Vinod Kumar

Was waiting to hear from MS on this. Download the same from MSDN Downloads.

Key enhancements from the Site:

  • Excel rendering extension has been improved and now supports viewing in Excel 97 and 2000.
    Have been waiting to hear this news from MS. Good work RS Team. A restriction to support till XP was something I wanted a change
  • PDF rendering extension is more robust and has better performance.
  • Chart control provides more control over display styles.
    Cutomizing chart control … Hmmm interesting and a long time requirement tooo by many.
  • References to external URLs (images and resources) from within a report are now supported.
  • Data caching behavior for report preview is now supported.
    And handy performance point of view requirement.
  • Newline in expressions is now supported.
    Ahh!!! Cant think of a specific requirement here.
  • The style of the HTML Viewer toolbar can now be modified through a style sheet.
    Wow!!! Was expecting this requirement from customers who would like to have skins type UI.
  • New URL parameters offer more options for customizing report presentation at run time
  • Report Manager proxy persists authentication cookies so that they can be used by custom security extensions.
  • Hidden parameters are now supported.
    Handy feature to say.
  • Temporary snapshots can be compressed as well as stored on the file system.
    Would like to play with this thing. Having Snapshots itself is a temporary output storage wrt to a time frame. Will want to see what is that this feature is to offer.
  • Integrated security support for accessing report data sources can be disabled.

Bryants Post on the same.
