List & Label Release 27:
New Functions for Cloud Reporting
Constance/Germany, 21 October 2021 – With the new List & Label Version 27, it is now easier for software developers to bring applications to the cloud. This is enabled by the new Web Report Designer, which allows report templates to be customized directly in the browser. In addition, the new version supports Windows Docker containers, making it easy to publish applications to platforms like Azure App Service via the Visual Studio Deployment Pipeline. Furthermore, version 27 offers connectivity to the latest Microsoft and Embarcadero technologies, and includes lots of other innovative functions.
List & Label can now be used via Docker in cloud environments that do not provide infrastructure for printer drivers and spoolers, such as Windows Azure or Amazon Web Services. Docker support also greatly simplifies deployment to the cloud. Jochen Bartlau, managing director at combit and List & Label development manager, is enthusiastic: “The issues of Web Report Designer and Docker support have been on our minds for years. We’re able to provide an all-round solution for both in version 27. Of course, we’ve also updated List & Label again as well. Development teams are now able to make use of the latest tools such as .NET 6, Visual Studio 2022 and RAD Studio 11.”
List & Label 27 also offers support for the recently released Windows 11 operating system, and the Desktop Designer has been equipped with new features too. For example, charts can be created more easily and quickly than before with the new drag & drop function. Where export is concerned, customer requests for more flexibility when naming worksheets in Excel spreadsheets have been implemented. At the same time, hyperlinks are now supported in text objects and table cells as well.
The combit Report Server has also been updated and is now based on Microsoft’s .NET 5 framework. The server-based solution for the browser can now be adapted to your own corporate identity with logo and accentuating colors. New features also simplify report generation in multiple languages and facilitate scheduled distribution via SFTP.
