Your Stimulsoft
On November 25, 2021, a major update of the PHP 8.1 was released. The release contains many improvements and new features, which significantly influenced the work of the projects created using PHP. However, first things first.
Among the updates in PHP 8.1, the following of them are worth taking into account:

  • Enumerations. A significant improvement of version 8.1, the essence of this is the ability to use enumeration instead of the class with constants, which allows you to validate the enumeration at runtime;

  • Fibers. Fibers are lightweight code blocks that allow you to create started, suspended, and terminated code blocks. Also, the ability to manage these threads at a low level is added. First of all, the revision concerns the AMPHP and ReactPHP frameworks;

  • Readonly properties. Now, the properties of a class can be marked as read-only, which means the information they contain can be written once, and they can't be changed after initialization. These properties are especially actual for implementing VO and DTO objects;

  • New in initializers. It allows you to use the keyword new in initializers. It can be applied as an option by default or a value of static variables or in attribute arguments;

  • Improved performance. Due to optimization of functions, improving iterators and speeding up class name resolution and opcache improvement – the ability to cache relationships between classes, productivity increased by about 8%.

PHP 8.1 and Stimulsoft products

The PHP update affected, first of all, our Reports.PHP and Dashboards.PHP products and only the server-side of these products. We have tested the work of Stimulsoft report generators under PHP 8.1 and haven't found compatibility issues.
You can find the latest version of Stimulsoft products here.

Today, we will tell you about a few minor but important improvements, which have affected the Publish option.
First of all, we are talking about the support of current versions of Angular – 10, 11, 12, and 13 when publishing reports and dashboards.

Improvements in the Publish Wizard

This improvement was made, firstly, for users, whose projects work under different versions of the Angular framework.

Now it is possible to select the required version, which is the one used in the project, and publish the rendered report or dashboard. As a result, you get a ready project to use. You may publish a report both in the desktop Win and JS report designer version and from the publish.stimulsoft.com website.
The support of the current Angular versions allows you not to spend time on the compatibility of platform versions in your project with the version in which a report or dashboard was published.
The second improvement has affected exporting a report in the Publish wizard.
Earlier, when publishing a report export project, the settings by default were used. It didn't allow you to change all necessary properties. This functionality has been improved in the 2022.1.3 version. A special class of settings is created when selecting an appropriate option.
The Wizard considers the type of report or dashboard, selected type of export, platform and framework. The necessary class of export settings is created based on these parameters. This improvement greatly simplifies the work with exporting reports and eliminates the need to search for the desired export option in the documentation and examples. In addition to the improvements in the Wizard, in version 2022.1.3, we optimized the use of memory when preparing projects, improved localization, and fixed the found errors.
Today, the opening of the 24th Winter Olympic Games takes place in Beijing. Over the next two weeks, hundreds of athletes will compete for medals in 15 sports.
Despite all the restrictions and covid-protocols, the fight will be uncompromising and unseasonably hot. We don't know who will win the overall medal standings, who will be the best sharpshooter in biathlon, or whose puck will win the hockey final. Our business is data, analytics, and visualization.
Especially for the opening of the Games, we have prepared an Olympic dashboard where you can find out:

  • how many countries have sent their athletes to the Games;

  • how many events do sports have;

  • what dates are scheduled for qualifying and final competitions;

  • and much more.
