Note that this was written in January 2008. Changes to Crystal Reports 2008 are expected that will impact the validity of some of the findings in this article in the future.

In October 2007, Business Objects released the latest version of Crystal Reports, called Crystal Reports 2008.

The new version of Crystal Reports does have some very cool features. While the sexiest features are the integration of Adobe Flex, Flash and Xcelsius charts, as a developer, I am more interested in the pragmatic enhancements, such as the ability for end users to do things like sorting and easily modify report parameters, the smaller footprint of the runtime that we have to deploy and design time improvements, such as an Intellisense-like feature when working in the formula builder that help me out.

There is a lot of documentation on the Business Objects website explaining and demonstrating the new features.
