We want to thank everyone who voted in our 2019 Roadmap Survey and shared their feedback. The following is a summary of features / capabilities we expect to introduce this year in our Report and Dashboard Server. Please remember that this product is for enterprise users who require a centralized reporting/dashabord platform. 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. This does not mean that the feature/product did not win the vote - it simply means that it received a plurality - not a majority.

We will give you the ability to create custom SQL queries.

Document Viewer, Report Designer and Dashboards – Color Schemes (v19.1 and v19.2)

We will provide a tool that helps you migrate a service product's database from staging to production environments.

.NET Core Support (v19.2)

We will give you the option to host a server-side engine in non-Windows environments. This will give you deployment flexibility including the ability to use cloud-based providers such as Azure’s Container Instances and Amazon’s Elastic Container Service.

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.

Hi, the JSON Data Source support will be available for dashboard and reports outside the Report and Dashboard Server, I mean for standard development winform / webform ?

Thanks !
