Vizlib June 2018 Release

Vizlib is delighted to announce the June 2018 release of their Library. Wait, what?! Didn't Qlik Sense just announce their June 2018 release as well? You're not mistaken. To keep things simple, we have decided to closely align our Vizlib Library releases to Qlik with a single exception being that we'll be doing them monthly.

From now on, every month we will take a snapshot of the latest version of each of our Vizlib extensions and package them to a bundled release for you to download together with an overview of what has changed.

Important: you will still be able to download our individual Vizlib extensions in the usual way as and when they are released, outside of the Vizlib Library release cycle.

More Transparency and Overview

Our speed of development, not only in terms of releasing one new extension nearly every month but also in terms of regular feature releases and bugfixes, is fantastic and highly welcomed by a lot of our users and customers.

However, with a lot of agility, we also understand it is very hard to keep track of what the latest version is or what has changed.

To simplify things a bit, we have introduced an additional monthly Vizlib Library release which will provide you with a comprehensive changelog of what has changed in the last couple of weeks.

It's up to you which path you wish to follow: update individual extensions as they are released, or stick to the monthly Vizlib Library release cycle.

If you choose the "Latest Version", you will be downloading the most recent and up-to-date version of each extension.

Qlik Sense June 2018 compatible with Vizlib June 2018

While we work on individual extensions most of the time, occasionally we are also introducing improvements for the collective Vizlib Library. QS June 2018 introduced some very significant changes that have affected some of our Vizlib extensions as well. Having worked with Qlik through the beta phase, we have resolved these issues before the official June 2018 release.

nPrinting + Vizlib = <3

We collaborated with the nPrinting R&D team and managed to make our whole Vizlib Library fully compatible with and supported by nPrinting 18+.

You will now be able to create pixel-perfect reports using Vizlib Objects which can be produced in PDF/PPT/DOC/XLS/HTML formats.

We will create some cool demos and how-to videos about this very soon.
