Improved performance, Precision, Private Fonts, Continuous Paper, Can Shrink and Viewers Events—check out the latest features in Reporting R3 2016 Beta 1.
We are constantly improving Telerik Reporting, taking into account your engagement and some great suggestions from our feedback portal. The latest features we've developed for you are now available in with the Beta 1 release. Now you can enjoy improved performance, Private Fonts, Continuous Paper, Can Shrink, Precision and Viewers Events. Below you will find more information about each of them.
Update: Additionally we now have published the Telerik Reporting R3 Beta 2, which includes PDF Security and Custom Actions features as well.
In our constant quest for faster report rendering, in this release we have improved the overall performance up to 25% in all supported document formats.
No more need to worry about installing fonts on the server, cloud instance, or the available fonts on the client computer. Now you can use any font without installing it on the hosting environment. We support Private Fonts in all rendering extensions and most viewers. For more information, please check out the downloadable documentation in chm format.
We have added support for Continuous Paper, so you can use all types of printers, including matrix printers with endless feed.
A CanShrink property for the panel and the report section container items is now available. If the container’s content is hidden or shrunk, when turned on the container will collapse accordingly.
Rendering hundreds pages of reports may cause an accumulation of floating point errors, which result in an unexpected layout. In order to avoid this now the reporting layout engine works with discrete precision of 10 micrometers.
Sometimes you may want to modify the rendered document prior to serving it to the viewers’ client. Now, this is supported in all report viewers.
For information about the included bug fixes check out the release notes.
