Open source business intelligence architecture strengthened with new analysis product and enhanced server capabilities

SAN FRANCISCO —June 28, 2006—JasperSoft Corporation, the leader in open source business intelligence, today announced the general availability of JasperIntelligence 1.0. New in JasperIntelligence, JasperAnalysis brings people in small and mid-size organizations open source Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) capability, enabling easy to use analysis of data. With this release of JasperIntelligence, JasperSoft is announcing major new versions of the full line of JasperSoft open source products, including JasperReports, iReport, JasperServer, and JasperAnalysis.

JasperAnalysis, new in JasperIntelligence 1.0, gives users the ability to analyze large datasets in real-time. With an easy-to-use graphical interface, business users can easily organize information along different axes to identify trends, anomalies, and correlations within the data. For example, sales information for a multi-location component manufacturer can be organized by year, product, and region to find out what components to order for different sites. Advanced reports can be easily created in JasperIntelligence and viewed as HTML, PDF, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word documents, or other output formats.

“When we announced the JasperIntelligence architecture in April, we promised to bring BI to everyone. Thanks to the speed and efficiencies of open source development, we have reached a major milestone toward that goal with the launch of JasperIntelligence 1.0,” said Paul Doscher, CEO of JasperSoft.
JasperAnalysis is designed to make BI accessible to all employees in an organization. Accountants, executives, and operational managers can now easily access BI analysis tools that were previously available only to upper management. Unlike traditional BI analysis products, JasperAnalysis can be seamlessly integrated into new and existing applications.

Additional JasperAnalysis features include:

· Dynamic drill, pivot, filter, and charting;
· Easy-to-use web interface for end-users;
· High-performance relational OLAP engine;
· Maps onto existing relational data sources without requiring data movement; and
· MDX and XML/A compliant.

JasperServer has also been updated in the new version of JasperIntelligence. New JasperServer features include:

· New object-level security in JasperServer that provides fine-grained access control on a per- report and object basis;
· More complete web services API;
· Scheduling;
· Report distribution.

A new release of JasperReports and iReport is also now available. The latest release includes a plug-in for JasperServer and usability improvements.

“JasperSoft is fully committed to the open source community behind iReport, JasperAnalysis, JasperReports, and JasperServer,” said Doscher. “We’re continuously working with the open source community on feature enhancements and quality improvements to make the best open source BI products available to everyone.”

Led by the popularity of JasperReports, JasperIntelligence popularity has grown to more than 1 million downloads, 10,000 deployments, and 3,000 paying customers.

Coding curmudgeon Linus Torvalds has gone off on yet another rant: this time against his own lawyers and free software activist Bradley Kuhn.

Leftovers: Software

  • 5 Cool Unikernels Projects
    Unikernels are poised to become the next big thing in microservices after Docker containers. Here’s a look at some of the cool things you can do with unikernels. First, though, here’s a quick primer on what unikernels are, for the uninitiated. Unikernels are similar to containers in that they let you run an app inside a portable, software-defined environment. But they go a step further than containers by packaging all of the libraries required to run the app directly into the unikernel.
  • Cedrus Is Making Progress On Open-Source Allwinner Video Encode/Decode
    The developers within the Sunxi camp working on better Allwinner SoC support under Linux have been reverse-engineering Allwinner's "Cedar" video engine. Their project is being called Cedrus with a goal of "100% libre and open-source" video decode/encode for the relevant Cedar hardware. The developers have been making progress and yesterday they published their initial patches that add a V4L2 decoder driver for the VPU found on Allwinner's A13 SoC.

  • Calibre 2.65.1 eBook Viewer Adds Driver for Kobo Aura One and Aura 2 Readers
    Kovid Goyal released today, August 26, 2016, a new maintenance update of his popular, cross-platform, and open-source Calibre e-book viewer, converter and library management tool. Calibre 2.65 was announced earlier, and it looks like it's both a feature and bugfix release that adds drivers for the Kobo Aura One and Kobo Aura Edition 2 ebook readers, along with a new option to the Kobo driver to allow users to ignore certain collections on their ebook reader. The list of new features continues with support for right-to-left text and tables to the DOCX Input feature, as well as the implementation of a new option to allow users to make searching case-sensitive. This option can be found and enabled in the "Searching" configuration section under Preferences.
  • Calamares 2.4 Universal Installer Framework Polishes Existing Functionality
    A new stable version of the Calamares universal installer framework used by various GNU/Linux distributions as default graphical installer has been released with various improvements and bug fixes. Calamares 2.4 is now the latest build, coming two months after the release of the previous version, Calamares 2.3, which introduced full-disk encryption support. However, Calamares 2.4 is not as big as the previous update as it only polished existing functionality and address various annoying issues reported by users.
  • RcppArmadillo 0.7.400.2.0
    Another Armadillo 7.* release -- now at 7.400. We skipped the 7.300.* serie release as it came too soon after our most recent CRAN release. Releasing RcppArmadillo 0.7.400.2.0 now keeps us at the (roughly monthly) cadence which works as a good compromise between getting updates out at Conrad's sometimes frantic pace, while keeping CRAN (and Debian) uploads to about once per month. So we may continue the pattern of helping Conrad with thorough regression tests by building against all (by now 253 (!!)) CRAN dependencies, but keeping release at the GitHub repo and only uploading to CRAN at most once a month.
