There is a new option for RS Express that allows the Administrator to turn on or off the RS Express feature.
There is also a new option that will require a unique key to be added to the query string. This will make the feature more secure and make it harder for a user to guess at document ID’s
Both of these new options can be set on the System Setup and Configuration page on the first tab. These global options can be overridden for each report on the Edit Document page

Remove Duplicate Entries from the Dynamic Parameters (188.8.131.52)
When using the Ripplestone Dynamic Parameter feature if the values for the parameter had any duplicates the list would stop loading at the first duplicate. This version will ignore any duplicates when loading the parameter pick list.
Fixed Bug when Editing a Report and Moving it to a New Folder (184.108.40.206)
When a user would click on a different folder in the Edit Document page the document would not get moved to the new location. This has been fixed and the document is now moved to the folder selected.
New User Options (220.127.116.11)
Users can now override the global settings for the Use Minimal Home Page and Display Favorites.
With the Use Minimal Home Page, the user can use the global setting or turn on or off the feature. With the feature on, the home page will display the least amount of data. This is helpful for very large sites or if there is a slow connection.
With the Display Favorites as Home Page, the user can use the global setting or turn on or off the feature. With the feature on, the home page will display the favorites when they login and not the standard home page. This is for the user that has the reports that they use most often added to their favorite’s area. They can still access the home page by clicking on the Home link
Below is the Edit User page with the new User Options tab displayed with the two new options.
System Setup and Configuration
Added New Option for the Home Page (18.104.22.168)
Added two new options for the home page. Both of these new options can be changed by each user.
Minimal Home Page – This option only displays the essentials needed for the home page. Extra information is not displayed. This is helpful when the connection is not fast or the users do not need the extra information.
Display Favorites As Home Page – This option allows the favorites to be displayed as the default home page. This option is for the users that want to quickly see all their favorite reports first.
Fixed a Issue with Users Marked as Inactive (22.214.171.124)
If a user has the Active flag un-checked they were still able to login to the system.
