Report Design Wizard Milestone 1 Now Available from Pentaho

Today the Pentaho-team released the first milestone of an report wizzard for JFreeReport.

The original Pentaho News Flash follows:

The first milestone build of the Pentaho Report Design Wizard is now available! It was created to facilitate report authoring for JFreeReport. While the Report Design Wizard is flexible in its report generation, it is not possible to solve some specific requirements. The Report Design Wizard bridges the gap between manual editing of XML and having a complete report designer. First-time users will enjoy the ease of use and power of the Report Design Wizard. Meanwhile, expert users will appreciate the time savings the Report Design Wizard provides.

- Step-by-step JFreeReport wizard
