Syncfusion is happy to announce the release of a new version of the Syncfusion Report Server (version 4.1.0.16). For this release, we have focused on adding usability features and improving the product’s stability.

In this blog, we’ll showcase the new features and enhancements included for this release.

User Management Server

The User Management Server available with this release allows you to manage applications and who can access them. It uses SSO (single sign-on) to grant or restrict access to an application for a user or a group.
