New features

DASHBOARDS-513 - CAST Report Generator for Dashboards - cross-platform

CAST Report Generator is now provided as a cross-platform ZIP file alongside the traditional Microsoft Windows GUI release. In other words this release can run on both Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems and can be simply unzipped to the install location (no installer is provided). The primary goal of this release is to provide reporting capabilities to the CAST RestAPI - this integration is first and foremost used by the CAST dashboards to generate reports from within the dashboard interface (see CAST Dashboard Package - Release Notes - 1.9.0).

See CAST Report Generator for Dashboards for more information.
