It’s been a long time coming, the last version was 2008. When Visual Studio 2010 started development and SAP released Crystal Reports 2010 for Visual Studio I was hopeful a new version was on the horizon- a long time has passed since then but finally Crystal Reports 2011 was released 03/05/11.
There seems to be very little new from what I’ve read but I will most likely still be trying it.
I can’t make much sense of the pricing:
UK Store- Full Version £500.25, Upgrade £310.50
US Store- Full Version $495 (£302), Upgrade $295 (£180)
Although I guess we should be used to companies trying to rip us off in the UK by now!
