Significant points from the Read Me:
* They've reversed their previous policy on the In Spreadsheet Browser (ISB):
* On the other hand, Workflow is on death row but will be replaced by "alternative... functionality" in a future release.As of TM1Â® 9.5.1, In-Spreadsheet Browser (ISB) support is classified as "compatible" which provides full support of existing functionality. Exploring TM1 data in Microsoft Excel while in writeback mode is valued by IBM and continued support is planned for this functionality.
* IE6 will be deprecated in the next major release of TM1.
* A big one... there is now support for Windows 7 and Server 2008.
From the New Features chapter:
This sticky will self-destruct in 30 days.The following features were introduced in this release.
IBM Cognos TM1 Package Connector
The IBMÂ® CognosÂ® TM1Â® Package Connector is optional software that allows you to import SAPbased and other OLAP and dimensionally modeled sources into TM1. See "Importing Data using the IBM Cognos TM1 Package Connector" in the IBMÂ® CognosÂ® TM1Â®Operation Guide.
Instructions for installing the TM1 Package Connector are found in the Installation Guide.
Personal Workspace and Sandbox Writeback Modes
IBMÂ® CognosÂ® TM1Â® offers different ways to handle the writeback of data to the server. Writeback modes can be enabled across the server, then targeted to specific user groups with the Capability Assignments interface. Administrators can set the writeback modes to offer a Personal Workspace, to allow users to create and name multiple Sandboxes, to maintain the classic TM1 direct writeback mode. See TM1 Writeback Mode and Sandboxes in the User Guide for more details.
Certain configuration parameters that can be set on a per user basis can be managed using the Capability Assignments interface. Only Administrators have access to this option. See "User Capabilities" in the Operations Guide.
An administrator can turn on the ability to process sandbox submissions using a Job Queue. This feature allows other server work to proceed until resources are obtained for sandbox calculations. The Job Queue can be monitored and submissions can be canceled. See "Job Queuing" in the IBMÂ® CognosÂ® TM1User Guide for more details.
Transaction Log Performance Enhancements
Three new features have improved Transaction Log performance:
The TM1s.cfg parameter LogReleaseLineCount sets the line limit for transaction Log searches before the lock is temporarily released so other activity can proceed. See "Remote Server Operations" in the IBMÂ® CognosÂ® TM1Â®Operations Guide for more information.
Performance enhancements have been made to the UNDO feature. See "The Transaction Log File" in the Programming Concepts chapter of the IBM Cognos TM1API Guide.
You can now cancel a long transaction log search. See "Viewing the Transaction Log" in the Operations Guide for more information.
Cubes with feeders can now store their feeders into a .feeders file which can be used to significantly improve cube load times. See "Persistent Feeders" in the IBMÂ® CognosÂ® TM1 Rules Guide.
Websheet and Paging
Although not a new feature, IBMÂ® CognosÂ® TM1Â® Websheet performance has been enhanced in this release:
â— Large Websheet processing has been significantly improved.
â— Paging now encompasses calculation.
