New Service Pack 27.004 for List & Label and the Report Server

In this summary you will find the most important new features and improvements in Service Pack 27.004. A detailed list of all changes can be found in the ServicePack.pdf in your installation as well as in the Service Pack download section.

Features

Components

  • VCL: Support for Embarcadero RAD Studio 11.1 (BDE & FireDAC).

Print

  • As “MS Sans Serif” is a raster font and causes problems with the PDF export, the font is now replaced in the RTF stream to “Microsoft Sans Serif”, looking the same, but scaling correctly.

Improvements

.NET

  • Improved schema detection and field type handling for SchemaAwareJsonDataProvider.

Designer

  • Non-existent project includes did show up using empty entries in the configuration dialog. Since this could be confusing, they now show up again with their name but additionally marked with an asterisk.
  • Changing of 3d chart view angles in the chart dialog always triggered creation of completely new random sample data. Now the created sample values persist hereby leading to a smoother user experience.
  • Added internal option LL_OPTION_COMPAT_FORCE_PRNOPT_PAGE to still force execution of LL_PRNOPT_PAGE even if it’s not used as intended to initially set the start page only.
  • Vastly improved performance of large HTML object exports to XHML.

Dataprovider

  • The MongoDBDataProvider now supports multiple root tables. All tables that are available as collections are now also available on the root level. As a side effect, this allows to add relations via filter condition if the data is stored non-relational on the server.
  • The regex used to find if a JSON field contains an ISO8601 date format was too sloppy and accepted a date anywhere inside a string. Now we only allow preceding white space and parse a field as string otherwise.

Export

  • The XHTML export now uses the overflow-wrap: break-word style if “Force Wrap” is activated for a text. This yields a better result than the word-break: break-all used before.
  • During a single sheet and/or endless pages excel export in ‘only data from tables’ mode the line wrapping and width/height calculation of text cells now is omitted by default for performance reasons.

Print

  • LL_OPTION_PRN_FORCE_PROJECTSIZE_AS_PAPERSIZE: 4 did not remove “paper size” in the DEVMODE structure.

Report Server

  • When sending emails in the report server, the client-server communication is now available in the debug log.
  • RS User Import Summary now has a clearer button to get back to the overview.

Other

  • Debwin4 could throw an exception if somehow two messages with the same line number were added.
  • Enhanced EXIF orientation detection for JPEGs.
