Announcing Monoreports - report designer and reporting engine

Hi all,

I've started new project that may interest you: report designer and
reporting engine for mono/.net. It's similar to the CrystalReport and
other tools like that, except it's not this much sql oriented.

I've done short (6 minutes) youtube demo here:

Monoreport is MIT11 licensed and githubed at:

https://github.com/tomaszkubacki/monoreports

Binary package:

Since the only Monoreports dependency is mono >= 2.6 > or .net >= 3.5 
you can grab binary package from here:
http://github.com/downloads/tomaszkubacki/monoreports/monoreports_pre.zip
and play without compilation. 

Monoreports features:

- simple layouting - if control in section is growable and will grow due
to assigned data, engine will do layouting to make report look properly

- page breaking - Monoreports engine will break or keep together report
sections whatever is needed

- generating and running reports from designer and code. 

- pdf export

- reporting engine is not tightly coupled with gtk/cairo stuff,
therefore it's reasonably easy to write new export backends (e.g. html,
xls etc)

Call for help:

Now the most important thing. I've zero experience running open source
projects, so i will appreciate any help, comments, constructive
criticism.

All this can be done here:

For short yes/no question/comments my twitter nick is tomaszkubacki

Cheers,
