New version of FastReport .Net 2019.4

September 10, 2019

In FastReport .NET 2019.4 we significantly improved polygons for which we added Bezier curves and new editing modes. Now you can work with the whole polygon, add a curve to it, change the curve created earlier, and you can also add, delete and move points of the polygon.

Added new time format.

Added JSON data connection, which is now available by default and does not require the installation of a plugin.

For FastReport .NET Core, the graphics dependency has been changed from CoreCompat.System.Drawing to System.Drawing.Common.

* updated a polygon object: now the polygon toolbar is displayed not near to the object, but in the main toolbar and in Ribbon; polygon modes are changed, new modes allow editing and adding curves

> because polygons have got strong changes, we want to get more detail about the change, the polygon has 5 editing modes: the first allows you to work with the whole object, the second for selecting and moving points, the third allows you to add new points to the polygon, the fourth allows you to edit the curves, the fifth to delete the points of the polygon. For the 3rd and 4th mode, you must select a point
