DataVision 0.8.3 released

DataVision 0.8.3 is now available from SourceForge at

DataVision ( is an Open Source reporting tool similar
to Crystal Reports. Reports can be designed using a drag-and-drop GUI. They
may be run, viewed, and printed from the application or exported as HTML, XML,
PDF, LaTeX2e, DocBook, or tab- or comma-delimited text files. The output files
produced by LaTeX2e and DocBook can in turn be used to produce PDF, text,
HTML, PostScript, and more.

DataVision is written in Java and uses JRuby to add Ruby scripting.

Bug fixes:

or bad output.

* Fixed a bug in the PDF layout engine that caused problems when the report's
title or author were null.

* Fixed a move-undo bug.
