Reports v04.04.00 is in the Release Process!

I've finally gotten things together and I'm happy to announce that the Reports module has entered the DotNetNuke Release Process! This means that there will be a series of tests run by different team members to ensure that the module is ready for release. Once completed, it will be posted and available for public download!

I'm a little nervous, as many junior programmers are when their code is reviewed by others, that I missed a bug or problem but overall I'm confident in the code. Just like proofreading an essay, third-party review and testing of your code is essential to producing good quality code because as a programmer it is nearly impossible to properly test code. As I mentioned, I'm applying for a Microsoft Internship, well one of the positions they hire for is a "Software Design Engineer in Test" whose job is to write and execute tests against the code written by Software Design Engineers. As a programmer, I cannot test my own code with 100% effectiveness because I know how it should work and how to make it work that way. Even if I try to think like a regular user, it's impossible to be 100% sure, so having a third-party test and review code is very useful.

Anyway, check out the announcement post in the Reports Forums to take a look at the Release Notes for the module and I'll make sure to let everyone know when the module releases!

BTW, Firefox 2.0's built-in spell check feature for every text box is VERY useful, check out the RC3 version here or wait for the release in a few weeks. It even works in the DNN HTML Editor (at least in the FTB Provider)
