Bernard,
Thanks for providing this information on SP2.
Also, did they mention about any support to have the Microsoft drivers installed on AIX for Voyager? Currently there is no support to Voyager on AIX (for MSAS cubes). Looks like we have to use one parallel Windows server for that purpose.
If it is supported in SP2, we will be saved.
Regards,

The SP2 release notes are available on the sap site, however, I don't see the SP2 available for download. Has the release notes been available for a while?

I also recently opened a ticket asking about a release date for SP2 and the SAP support person responded saying that they are looking to release it late this week or early next week.

Hi Bernard

I found it by (after logging in) choosing
Release & Upgrade Info ->Release Notes -> SAP BusinessObjects -> SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence -> Enterprise

And it is the first time I have found something I was looking for on the SAP portal icon_biggrin.gif

I like the new input controls feature for WebI. The fold stuff isn't clear, though, the whats new talks about sections icon_confused.gif

Input controls sounds great (think some Xcelsius including WHAT-IF analysis in Webi) icon_biggrin.gif
Also the improvements in the MDX editor for OLAP based universes thumbsup.gif

Not sure what smart_aggregates (universe parameter) are: I am assuming this is related to smart (a.k.a. database delegated) measures, instead of creating separate queries for each level of detail, one can direct the universe to use only the most detailed fact table instead?

I like the enhancement of QaaWS & LiveOffice when it comes to using an object in a filter/condition. Think of: OrderDate = Today

I'm really happy to see query on a query, and folds. icon_cool.gif

The input controls sound interesting, and maybe that can fulfill a requirement we currently meet with drillfilters. Good to see some new features coming thumbsup.gif

I will be even more impressed if there are some charting improvements (but I won't hold my breath for that !)
