We love Java! List & Label itself has a native C++ API. This API can also be called directly from Java applications via a Java Native Interface Wrapper, which has already been part of the product for ten versions. Over the years, we have implemented many suggestions from the community, for example we have improved the callback interface of the JNI component. Now we are going one step further – do you want to help us to improve the JNI wrapper, too?

Today, modern reports must be designed for more than just one purpose. In addition, "all" data should be contained as simply as possible – but presented in a clear and structured way. With List & Label such multifunctional reports can be easily realized. Interactive elements allow a single report to cover several scenarios, while selection options further enhance the report. This makes reports more comprehensive and informative and can be easily operated by the user.

From now on, the company will concentrate on the further development of .NET Core. For developers, the question arises: Is the release of .NET Core 3.1 a good time to migrate from the .NET Framework? The good news is that you don't have to do without List & Label when migrating.
Creating preview files is all well and good. However, when you needed to access the texts within the preview for post processing, you had to resort to a text export, finding the relevant strings and copying them from there. In LL25, we added a powerful way to extract texts from a preview, directly from within the preview window.
