The following is a summary of features / capabilities we expect to introduce this year in our Report and Dashboard Server.

If you wish to view the roadmap for DevExpress Reports – our royalty free reporting platform – please refer to one of the following blog posts:

To learn more about our royalty-free Dashboard roadmap, please review the following blog post: DevExpress Dashboards - 2019 Roadmap.

Feel free to email us at if you have any issues or questions regarding the roadmap. We'll be happy to determine your requirements and discuss a feature implementation.

Important Note: In nearly every instance, we selected features/products that received the highest vote count. In many instances, total votes for features that appear on this roadmap failed to break the 50% mark.

Is there any general update on the release date to 19.2?  I'm desperately awaiting the Web Service / JSON data source feature.

Thanks in advance,

Hi David,

We've just released v19.1 so I think it's premature to think about an exact v19.2 release date right now. In any case, we usually ship the second major update in fall, and I suppose that we'll target November.

Thanks !
