Updating Delphi and Lazarus products to 2024.2 version


This update includes improvements and fixes for our entire line of Delphi and Lazarus products.

One of the main features of this update is the new package with visual components TfrTreeView. The new TfrTreeView allows you to quickly create your custom equivalents of TreeView, expanding the functionality of your application. Compared to the standard TreeView, our component has fast and convenient navigation, collapsing and expanding the tree of thousands of elements. This enhances the responsiveness of your application's interface for end users. And, of course, TfrTreeView is supported in both VCL and Lazarus!


FastReport VCL

You can experience the responsiveness of the interface in the FastReport VCL report designer when working with a large amount of data or objects, thanks to the use of the new TfrTreeView component.

FastReport VCL

Support for GeoJSON and TopoJSON formats has been added to the map object. Use maps in whichever format is most convenient for you.


Improved handling of digital signatures in PDF and other files. Our product allows for maximum flexibility in configuring digital signatures. You have access to the following settings:

  • Signing method: FastReport, CryptoAPI, CryptoPRO
  • Signature type: CAdES-BES, СAdES-T, CAdES-X Type 1.
  • Time Stamping Authority servers.
  • Certificate stores.
  • Signature hash: md5, sha1, sha256.

A mode of infinite width has been added for the dynamic table object. The size of the table grows depending on the data being output. In the preview window, you can see a page that fits all the table columns. Meanwhile, in normal mode, columns that do not fit on the sheet will be moved to the next page.

A mode of infinite width has been added for the dynamic table object.

Reports with detailed pages retain the states of the transmitted variables for each tab, allowing for individual reconstruction of each tab when updating parameters.

A new property for linear barcodes, DigitsAutoFillMode, has been added. dafmLeftOnly fills missing barcode digits with zeros from the left side. dafmRightChecksum always adds a zero checksum when there is a shortage of digits required by the barcode standard.


In this update, we have enhanced and addressed numerous issues with the HTML5, SVG, PDF, XLSX, and DOCX export filters. HTML5, SVG, and PDF exports are now closer to full WYSIWYG. The quality of DOCX and XLSX exports has been improved for table exports.

An alternative path on Linux has seen overall improvements in operation under WINE on Linux.



Lazarus support has been added to FastQueryBuilder—now you can connect and use it in your Lazarus projects.


The errors found were fixed and integration with the common code base was improved.


FastReport FMX

Added two new export DOCX and XLSX filters—export reports to the format you need.

FastReport FMX


Starting with release, we will no longer support development environments released before Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.4 for the FireMonkey platform.
