We're really excited about the ActiveReports 11 Service Pack 1 release. I think you'll like what we've done to improve the HTML5 viewer.

The Layers feature has been around since ActiveReports version 9, but maybe you haven't really checked it out yet. It is a feature that is exclusive to ActiveReports, and revolutionizes a number of scenarios, so I thought I'd share some of these with you.

If you use the COM version of ActiveReports and would like to migrate to the .NET platform and use ActiveReports 11, you are in the right place. You can pull all of your layouts in, leaving only the code to update manually. The process is, basically, save, load, update code.
In Windows Forms applications, you can print reports without previewing them using the Print method that is implemented as an extension method for the SectionDocument and PageDocument classes.
