I just wanted to ask if there is a roadmap for FlexCel and what will the new features be respectivley?
We have a private todo list which currently includes 44 items, and that is growing all the time, never going down. Even with a product as mature as FlexCel with about 15 years of development, there always seem to appear new things to do.
But we prefer not to make a public roadmap, because priorities change all the time and once we make a public statement that we are going to support feature x next, people will logically expect that we do feature x next, and too many times we are forced to do unplanned stuff instead, relegating feature x for a long time.
The one big feature I can tell you about right now is much improved chart support with rendering of xlsx charts and lots of new methods to add a chart by code. This is coming for FlexCel 7, but other big stuff like much improved Right-to-left support should be coming sooner. (right to left is already implemented)
Is there anything specific you would like to see in newer releases?
At the moment, there are 2 missing features for me:
- Charts in PDF files with xlsx template file
- Modifying/adding charts via code with xlsx template file
