After a long silence in this release news of Pentaho-Reporting, we are proud to announce the release-candidate of the upcoming version 0.8.10 of the Pentaho-Reporting Classic-Engine.

A first pre-release of JFreeReport 0.8.9 has been released.

JFreeReport 0.8.7-2 is a minor bugfix release, which fixes an invalid initialization in the page setup handlers. That particluar bug made the page setup dialogs inaccessible, which can be considered a show stopper.
