JFreeReport 0.8.3 released


We just released a new version of JFreeReport, which contains all previous bugfixes for version 0.8.2. The extension project was also upgraded to keep in sync with the main project.

Upgrading is heavily recommended as the last version had heavy problems with larger (multilined) text fields.

Have more fun,

JFreeReport 0.8.0 is released

Hello everybody,

JFreeReport is back with a new release. Three months have passed by
since our last release went public, and now, finally, the next major
release of JFreeReport is here.

The new release now supports advanced layouting capabilities, a smart
and easy to use configuration interface and a more reliable reporting
engine in the background.

The massive redesign process removed many deprecated classes and other
classes moved to different packages, so you will have to adjust your
sourcecode when upgrading. Please read the file "migrating.txt" for
more details on the upgrade process.... read more

Version 0.7.4, a bugfix release

Lets have a new release.

As there was a bug in version 0.7.3 which causes JFreeReport to deny work under linux, and in response to a new release of jcommon, a library used by JFreeReport, which changed the internal structure of that lib: lets have a new version of 0.7.4.

Nothing else changed, but jcommon-0.6.2 is not compatible with previous versions, so please upgrade both JFreeReport and the JCommon-lib.... read more
