Today, software developer mrc announces the release of reporting and m-Painter enhancements within the m-Power Development Platform. m-Power is a web application development platform that businesses use across their organizations. It creates web applications such as report-writing, Business Intelligence, executive dashboards, customer portals, and mobile applications to name a few.

This release enhances the m-Power Development Platform with new period-over-period analysis features and improvements to m-Painter's source editor. These new enhancements improve m-Power in a couple of ways:

Period-over-period analysis brings more powerful reporting
m-Power offers built-in period-over-period comparisons, which helps users quickly compare data between two time frames. A powerful reporting feature, period-over-period analysis help m-Power users easily compare data and discover trends.

With this enhancement, developers can now let end-users compare year over year values based on a day of the week (and week of the year), rather than a specific date. This feature helps those who need reporting that allows them to see how a specific day from the current year compares to the corresponding day (based on the week of the year) from the previous year.

Improved m-Painter source view
An integral part of m-Power, m-Painter is an open-source WYSIWYG text editor that lets users customize the look and feel of their web applications without any knowledge of HTML, CSS, or javascript. m-Painter also lets users edit their applications at the code level using a source view editor.

With this enhancement, developers will see major improvements to the source mode. Notable enhancements include a redesigned interface, typeahead suggestions, the ability to diff, formatting improvements, js/css asset management, and much more.

"This enhancement brings improvements on several levels," says Tyler Wassell, mrc's Lead Software Developer. "Not only does it simplify application development, it also brings some powerful new analytical features that m-Power users of all skill levels are sure to love."
