June Sets Records For Pentaho - A Big Thank You Goes Out to the Community

The Pentaho team wants to thank every member of the Pentaho Nation for making June a record month for us. Our project stats went completely off the charts, topping over 54,000 downloads ... in one month!!

Here are just a few other exciting developments:

-Pentaho Reporting (JFreeReport) is the reporting engine of choice in the Pentaho platform, with over 5000 downloads of its client tool, Pentaho Report Designer, in the first 30 days of the designer's open source debut.

-Pentaho Analysis Services (Mondrian) recorded the highest monthly download total in its five-year history, exceeding theprevious high by 50%!

-Pentaho Data Integration (Kettle) has exploded in popularity and adoption, drawing over 35 community developers assisting the team with the latest release.

Together we have built and continue to improve the very best open source business intelligence suite. We appreciate your continued enthusiasm, commitment and always, your feedback on what we are doing right and what we can do better!
