[DataVision is now a Java project (http://datavision.sourceforge.net) that will start using JRuby (http://jruby.sourceforge.net) as of version 0.7.0. The original Ruby releases are still available via SourceForge.]
DataVision is a database reporting tool similar to Crystal Reports, written in Ruby. Multiple database backends (PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL) and front ends (LaTeX (therefore PDF, etc.), XML, comma- and tab-separated data files, DocBook, and HTML) are supported.
Though it uses XML to save and load report descriptions, there is the beginnings of a GUI.
Changes in v0.0.2:
* Can now handle data with embedded newlines.
* The LaTeX layout engine wraps long values within the bounds of thefield.
* When writing reports to XML, save the database host and port.
* Sections can now cause a page break before themselves, after, orboth.
* The beginnings of a GUI.
