Hi all.
I agree this is an important issue. I heard there was some plan to implement this:
anyone knows the current status, and the prospects for the future?
Obviously, we have always the same duality: implementing outside QGIS is easier and
more powerful, reusing existing tools, whereas an internal implementation is far
smoother from an user point of view.
Historically, in most analogous cases we ended up implementing an internal solution
(sometimes using common libs), and I suspect sooner or later we'll have to do the
same for reporting also.
All the best.
