    Hi , I notice that there is a build v7.3.8111.0 dated September 12th 2014 which appears to be available for download on your server. However, you do not appear to be officially linking to it anywhere?

    Does this supersede the “official” final version of 7.3.7973.0 which you link to at the head of this post? I’m not sure which one I should download?

    Thanks in advance for any light you can shed.

    Richa, I don’t think you actually read my post. I know I can download that version (7.3.7973.0), I can see the link at the top of this very page!

    I was asking about more recent version v7.3.8111.0 which was published just 5 days ago some five months after the version you linked to. It is available to download from What is the latest version for? Why should I use the earlier version if there is a later version available? Thank you.

    Hello bobosola,

    The AR7 build 7.3.7973.0 was a major AR7 SP3 released in April 2014. This build was focused towards customer reported bug fixes and a few improvements in the better performance and memory footprints for report at run-time.

    The new build (7.3.8111.0) contains a few issue fixes and some minor changes.Regarding which version to chose, you may use the version 7.3.8111.0 in your application. Even though it is not a official release, you may still use this build in production.

    I hope it answers your query.
