Defects Fixed in this Patch:

24653959 - Submitted jobs could take up to a minute to display with correct status in the Job Library.  With this patch, submitted jobs display immediately in the Job Library and their statuses are updated promptly.

25070783 - For Management Ledger applications, dimension cache loading is enhanced in this patch to load more efficiently.  For applications with large dimensions, this results in much shorter wait times for accessing dimension members after updating dimensions.

25219342 - For Management Ledger applications with large dimensions, Smart View queries could take too long to validate and save, causing the screen to hang or time out.  That problem is resolved in this patch.

25263275 - For Management Ledger applications, member formulas with new line characters cannot be supported.  They cannot be properly imported by Template Import or LCM Import.Template Export and LCM Export are enhanced in this patch to remove any new line characters within member formulas so they will be able to re-import cleanly without errors.

25340413 - For Management Ledger applications with attribute dimensions, the attribute associations were not being imported on the base dimensions when Dimensions were selected for LCM import.With this patch, LCM export is changed to export the attribute dimensions first so they will import before the base dimensions. If you have encountered this problem, re-export your application after applying this patch, then the attribute associations will import correctly. If the source application is no longer available for re-exporting, the workaround is to re-import the base dimensions after the initial full import.
