SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) is getting quite the overhaul in SQL Server 2016. Lot’s of things are changing:
- new look ‘n feel for Report Builder: Report Builder Changes in SQL Server 2016
- new chart types (check out my sunburst, treemap and heatmap articles)
- a (somewhat) customizable parameter pane
- HTML 5 support
- and many, many other stuff (see also What’s new in SSRS)
And these are all awesome changes. But sometimes it’s the little things that make me smile.

You can find a screenshot of the old dialog in the sunburst article.
How neat is that?
