Previously, I posted that we were working on an updated version of the report viewer control for Visual Studio 2010. With beta 1 now available, I have naturally started receiving questions wondering why the report viewer that is included in beta 1 is essentially the same thing that shipped with Visual Studio 2008.
I want assure everyone that our plans have not changed. We will ship an updated report viewer in VS 2010. Unfortunately, the timing just didn’t work out for us to get this update included in beta 1. Our current plan is for the updated viewer to appear in beta 2.
I’ll be talking a lot more about the new report viewer features once beta 2 is available. But I do want to at least provide an overview of the work we’re doing. Below are some of the new features or changes we’re making. This is certainly not an exhaustive list.
As always, if there is a particular feature or problem you’d like us to address, we want to know. Please send feedback via Microsoft Connect. Our team reviews that feedback weekly.
