The first few 4.0 features are in.
In the subversion repository, you can now find a CDA data-factory (along with a report-designer GUI plugin). This new data-factory allows you to use a server side CDA data-source in your report. You will need a very recent build of CDA to make it work (as CDA 1.0 had a bug in its XML exporter).
Grab the CDA sources from http://code.google.com/p/pentaho-cda/ and build it with “ant resolve dist” and you are ready to go.
And secondly: Pentaho Reporting learned a couple of new barcodes. Our barcode element now uses Barcode4J in addition to Barbecue and thus adds support for the following barcodes:
- Royal Mail
- US-Postal Service Intelligent Mail
