What's New in This Release:
- New type of report template called "report book" was added, in which sections are made of parts instead of bands; parts are external report templates, similar to subreports, and allow creation of documents with variable page size and/or orientation; parts can be displayed on separate tabs by report viewers and simplify creation of "table of contents" structures in which parts that appear early in the document are actually filled/rendered later during the report filling process (see evaluationTime attribute of part);
- New JSON metadata exporter added, similar to the XLS and CSV metadata exporters in which the values that need to be exported have to be marked-up using configuration properties at text element level;
- Upgrade to iText version 5.5.0 in the PDF exporter;
- Upgrade to POI version 3.10.1 in the XLS exporter and data source;
