Micro Focus File Reporter 3.0.3

(April 19, 2017)

This maintenance release addresses some potential performance issues relating to the Engine, Agents, and SQL Server database. These performance issues are not common, and manifested themselves only at a very limited number of customer sites. If you are experiencing acceptable performance of File Reporter 3.0.2, you probably do not need to upgrade to version 3.0.3.

If you are running a version of File Reporter released before version 3.0.2, Micro Focus recommends that you upgrade directly to version 3.0.3.

For a detailed description of all updates, as well as all known issues, refer to the File Reporter 3.0.3 Release Notes located on the File Reporter documentation page.

Micro Focus File Reporter 3.0.2

(January 9, 2017)

This maintenance release includes bug fixes introduced in a previously-released 3.0.1 patch, as well as new bug fixes. It also includes a PostgreSQL driver update, as well as an update to Open SSL. For a detailed description of all bug fixes and updates, as well as all known issues, refer to the File Reporter 3.0.2 Release Notes located on the File Reporter documentation page.

Micro Focus File Reporter 3.0

(July 19, 2016)

As is customary with File Reporter product releases, File Reporter 3.0 introduces both performance and product enhancements that customers will want to utilize right away.

Product Rebranding
File Reporter 3.0 is completely rebranded as a Micro Focus product. Installation wizards, login screens, and even the licensing site has been given a Micro Focus branding makeover.

Dramatically Improved Performance
The introduction of a new .NET application called the Scan Processor greatly speeds up the time it takes to insert a scan into the database. Additionally, the Engine does not need to decompress scans. Both of these developments make it possible to generate more scans and reports during a given segment of time.

New Analytics Tools
Previously offered as "Technology Preview" applications, these impressive graphical analysis tools have been fully developed and are now included with the Client Tools. Analytics tools include a Dashboard, Pivot Grid, and Tree Map.
