LET PARTY! We are very happy to let you know that KoolReport 4.0.0 has been released. There are many enhancements in this version that worth your upgrade.
Now all our packages both free and paid can be installed through
Composer. The free packages are hosted with famous Packagist and the commercial packages are hosted with our self-built private repository.
Since we moved our GitHub repository from
koolreport/core, we have adjusted our folder structure a little bit for unity between manual installation and composer installation.
The core itself has been improved so much from datasources to data processes and the visualization. Those existed bugs from version 3.x has been solved completely in this version.
We added a new widget added called
Card to the core. The
Card allows us to show the important KPI value in our report. If you aim at constructing a dashboard, Card widget is very useful.
KoolReport 4.0.0 is extended capability to work with other template engines rather than just default and boring
.view file. To support this feature, we have released 3 new template engine packages:
- Blade: You are in love with Blade in Laravel? Now you can use blade for your report view
- PlatesPHP: You just want to use native PHP template? PlatesPHP is your best choice.
- Twig: Another famous and proven template engine. Fast and secure.
All of them are free. You can download those packages via our website or install them with composer.
Planning to release in previous version but we are only able to perfect and release our
Amazing theme package now. The
Amazing theme allows us to make our report look new and modern. Built on top of Bootstrap 4, the amazing theme inherits all cool features of Bootstrap 4 together with new look and feel. We also added some cool widgets for this theme package as well. Say no more, you can have a look at this new package here

We are very happy to let you know that KoolReport 2.43.0 has been released. We continue to make KoolReport the great reporting framework.
It seems KoolReport core is quite stable now. Only a small change in this version compared to the previous one is the improvement for Google Chart when dealing with numeric column in string form. We were reported by one of our customers a mysterious error that broke his chart. Further investigation leaded us to the root cause. One of his column is supposed to be numeric type but stored in string form so Google Chart ran into trouble. In this version, if a column is specified type as number, we will enforce the rule by converting the value of that column to number.
Beside the new version of core, we released new package version for QueryBuilder, DataGrid, Pivot and Excel.
QueryBuilder 1.4.0 has been fixed the WHERE statement when dealing with boolean type. In addition, we fixed the issue of wrong quoting name of table and column. Now the
table.columnName will be generated correctly as
'table'.'columnName' in SQL statement.
DataGrid 1.2.0 contains improvement for
cssClass property to add custom css classes for th, tr, td, tf. We also add the
formatValue property to allow us to custom the display of column value.
Pivot 4.0.0 has biggest improvement for css. Now we can customize look n feel by overwriting its default css classes. Beside that, we added new command
expand() at client-side to expand any level we want.
Excel 1.2.0 has been added new properties
sheetIndex in ExcelDataSource to let us specify exactly what sheet of excel we want to load. This will help us to avoid problem of
Memory Limit Exceeded if we have large Excel file.
Together with above releases of new core and extended packages, we released KoolReport Pro 2.43.0 containing all recent updates. If you own KoolReport Pro license, you may update now.

We have released new version KoolReport 2.42.0 with some minor fixes. You may download and upgrade now!
PHP 5.4 Compatibility
In the last release KoolReport 2.41.3, we have used the class constant
::class to get the full class name of a class. However this feature is available in PHP >= 5.5. Those who uses PHP 5.4 will get errors.
With the promise to support PHP >= 5.4, we have replaced those class constants with strings containing real class names. This will help to solve the issues.
We would like to thank bysystem to let us know this issue.
We have fixed an issue of
PostGreSQL when we try to set
charset. Thanks Daniel Amamoo-Otchere for telling us this issue.
The new version 2.42.0 contains some minor fixes for KoolReport. For your information, we also release KoolReport Pro 2.42.0 containing above updates and new release of QueryBuilder 1.2.0.
Thank you very much!

We have released new version of KoolReport 2.41.3. In this version, we added new processes
ColumnRename, made KoolReport work with
composer's autoload and fixed several bugs.
As you may know that in previous version, although
KoolReport can be installed through
composer but it was not able to use the default autoload provided by
composer. As a result, we still need to include the
koolreport/autoload.php file to make
KoolReport work. Not anymore in the new version! Now after installing KoolReport package though composer, all classes will be loaded automatically without any extra work.
AccumulatedColumn is a process to help you generate a accumulated result from a column. Let say you have a
sale_amount column, you may create a
sale_balance with be easily with following code
So you will have this result
Although you may rename the column using
ColumnMeta process, we have made new process called
ColumnRename to do this job. Renaming a column is common task so it is deserved a separated process. Below is an example to rename column from
Group process has a bug which happens when we count row in a group that has only one row. This error has been fixed so if you use
Group process, please upgrade to this version.
Together with the release of KoolReport core, We also released KoolReport Pro 2.41.3 containing the latest core and all available packages. In this new version, there is following updated versions Pivot 3.3.0, Export 3.5.0 and QueryBuilder 1.1.0. If you own the KoolReport Pro license, you may login and download now. If not, please please consider to get one since it is the most valuable package you have ever found.
In this version, we continue to perfect
KoolReport to make it the best reporting framework for PHP and we will continue doing so. We thank you very much for using
KoolReport, for your trust and your endless support along the way.
