The latest release of Crystal Reports has been re-branded as "SAP Crystal Reports 2011", but don't worry — it is still the same popular general purpose reporting tool that works with practically any database or data source.
Crystal Reports 2011 builds on the powerful reporting features of Crystal Reports 2008 while providing new features to report designers and application developers. Using the new read-only report format and export to XSLX features you can provide access to your reports in new ways. Through integration with Visual Studio 2010, application developers can update their applications while continuing to embed the flexible and interactive reporting features of Crystal Reports.
