No need to look sour: We’ll show how Citrus came to the Pentaho-Report-Designer

On Wednesday 3PM London time (or 10AM Orlando time) we will give a Community Web-Ex about how Reporting Changes in the upcoming Citrus-Release.

Aside from officially announcing the switch from our well-loved, most-hated-by-sales “0.8.x” version numbering schema, we will shed some light what new features we have and on how the new features will make your reporting life easier. During the first part, we will give an short overview about the new stuff (and the reasons behind it) and also explain the changed relationship of the new reporting engine and the BI-Platform. As we all know, that there is no other truth than working code, the second part will demonstrate how to utilize parameters, the new datasources and the Rich-Text engine (along with the magic wizard), to build a simple interactive ad-hoc reporting solution. Building this solution should be fast, so we’ll have plenty of time for questions and answers at the end of the Web-Ex.

The web-ex information will be available via the Pentaho-Forum.

After working as all-hands guy and lead developer on Pentaho Reporting for over an decade, I have learned a thing or two about report generation, layouting and general BI practices. I have witnessed the remarkable growth of Pentaho Reporting from a small niche product to a enterprise class Business Intelligence product. This blog documents my own perspective on Pentaho Reporting's development process and our our steps towards upcoming releases.
