The list below is not ordered … and some of those features are already available for ous customers (those running Vanilla 4.09 or later) … so, for customers, some new features is not really “new” (like Mdm, document management, Vanilla Viewer, Wms integration …)

Some already told us “it’s a lot of new feature for a small version increase” … that’s true. We could have labeled the version “5.0”, but it was just time to align with Eclipse 4.2 and Birt 4.2 … which makes sense also, right ?

Have Fun !
