SmartView 11.1.2.5 released

(in via Henri ; ) )

Sometimes it pays off to visit the other blogs of the EPM universe. If I had not checked my RSS feeds, I probably would have missed the release of SmartView 11.1.2.5. So thanks to Henri for blogging about it. Some details I would like to mention here:

It is available as  patch 17322826 via MOS, or via OTN

This version adds support for the following:

  • Microsoft Windows 8
  • Microsoft Office 2013 (32- and 64-bit)
  • Microsoft Surface Pro tablet

You can upgrade to this release directly from Smart View 11.1.2.x and 11.1.1.4.x.
When upgrading from release 11.1.1.3.x and earlier, Oracle recommends uninstalling Smart View before installing release 11.1.2.5.

I will not go into detail about what this version can do and where the known issues are with it.
You can find all that information in the  readme here. I just re-posted this, to spread the word.

Welcome SmartView 11.1.2.5

Note:

SmartView is the only part of EPM / OBIEE that runs under 11.1.2.5. There is no EPM version 11.1.2.5 yet, so don't be too surprised not to find it on eDelivery.
