BIRT 2.5 M7 New and Notable

BIRT 2.5 M7 was released earlier this month. This milestone adds features like, default parameter value scripting, the ability to paste HTML and RTF directly into a Text element, and independent Locale formatting. Crosstabs have also been improved to support dragging attributes directly from the data cube into the crosstab, independent visibility for a measure and its totals, and improved support for empty values associated with a time dimension. In addition a new interface is provided that allows your Java programs to track the progress of a BIRT report.

To read more about the new features, go here. As always we appreciate feedback on the new features.
