Jaspersoft Announces the Immediate Availability of Jaspersoft 3.7 Community

Originally published February 5, 2010

Jaspersoft, creator of the world’s most widely used business intelligence software, recently announced the immediate availability of Jaspersoft 3.7 Community release for free download at jasperforge.org. The Jaspersoft 3.7 Community release comes just weeks after the general availability of Jaspersoft 3.7 Enterprise Edition, a commercially-supported release of the most advanced business analytics and reporting functionality available from an open source software provider.
The Jaspersoft 3.7 Community release is a powerful series of business intelligence projects that gives developers and customers advanced usability features for even the most complex reporting environments, new reporting enhancements for fine grain control of sophisticated report layouts, and much broader support for both operating system platforms and output to the latest application format extensions.
“Input from the global community of Jaspersoft developers drove our decisions around new features and functionality to add to Jaspersoft 3.7 Community release,” said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft. “We’re pleased to have had developers participate in this process by their votes on our community site and by their contributions of code and QA support.”
The new Jaspersoft 3.7 Community release gives users a much more flexible, powerful and easy-to-use business intelligence solution, including key new features such as:
•    Search-powered report repository, making it easier to find reports and report objects;
•    Support for report output types such as open office and the latest Microsoft file format extensions (xlsx and docx);
•    New cascading input controls enables smarter, easier-to-use reports;
•    New native support for Macintosh OS X;
•    Support for XLS as a data source;
•    Expanded user management web services;
•    New reporting enhancements such as list component, multi-band for a single report, footer positioning, and sorting for crosstabs;
•    And much more.

“From a business perspective, there aren’t many report frameworks out there that are on par with Jaspersoft 3.7 Community release — powerful, but cost-efficient,” said Reuben Kerben, CEO of Spiral Universe, makers of educational software for K-12 schools. “We find the Jaspersoft technology quite flexible and customizable. Our Jaspersoft BI is one of the reasons our company is growing so fast. Reports are essential to schools – they’re mandated by state or national-level governments, so they’re critical to our business.”
