BKS Shorts 2.0.8

Today we released BKeeney Shorts 2.0.8.  This is a free update to all version 2.0.x users.
Shorts is the award winning reporting tool for Xojo applications.  Shorts allows a Xojo developer to embed a report designer inside in a desktop application, view reports in any resolution on desktop or web applications, save report files to file or to a database, and to export reports to HTML, CSV, and PDF (requires the DynaPDF plugin from MBS).  Shorts works with SQLite, CubeSQL, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MS SQL Server, ODBC, and Informix (requires the SQL plugin from MBS).
Shorts comes as 100% unencrypted Xojo source code.
