The next major versions of Telerik Reporting and Telerik Report Server products have been just published. Now, it's time to introduce the latest features and improvements packed into the R2 2019 release.
Here’s a quick look at the things we are most excited about:
As we keep striving to provide the best user experience for all end-users, it is essential that we can reach out to a wider audience. PDF export format is the most used one in our product, so in this release we decided to continue to push forward our efforts to introduce accessibility support for the exported PDF documents. This improvement is especially important for organizations who broadly use this format like banks, government institutions and big enterprises, where the accessibility support is a must. This will ensure accessibility for people with disabilities who use assistive technology such as screen readers, screen magnifiers, joysticks and other technologies to navigate and read electronic content.
As of R2 2019, we enable offline feeding of the reports with data in JSON format. The JsonDataSource component enables data items to display data stored in JSON document, including files or inline string, without writing a single line of code. Using JsonDataSource allows you to access and display data in a report without parsing the JSON document first. This adds another option of self-containing report definition that does not have external dependencies and can be easily shared for report preview and export.
Following today's trends, we’ve enabled the WPF and WinForms report viewers to support the up-and-coming .NET Core 3.0. In this new Core version, Microsoft team will add support for the desktop technologies when officially released. With this and the .NET Core 3.0 support for Progress Telerik Windows Forms and WPF control suites, we enable our users to create fully featured .NET Core desktop applications.
We cannot miss to share that in this release, we’ve also improved our Reporting REST Service to support .NET Core 3.0.
