Well, it’s finally here. SAP BusinessObjects XI 3.1 SP2 has been released. And today is also the day that Xcelsius 2008 SP2 is supposed to be released. I’m currently downloading the 1.36 GB patch from the SAP Service Marketplace and trying to find the updated documentation on the SAP Help Portal. SAP puts the documentation in about 5 different places and I’m still trying to find the elusive “What’s New” document.
UPDATE: Thanks to my friend Josh Fletcher, I’m now reading the What’s New in BusinessObjects XI 3.1 Service Pack 2 document. And you can too, by following the link.
I’m still planning to use Edge BI 3.1 to demonstrate publications and Explorer at the upcoming SAP BusinessObjects User Conference sponsored by GBN. Service packs for Edge lag behind Enterprise, so hopefully I’ll have one for Edge by October. However, potential new features in SP2 might encourage me to move my demos back to Enterprise.
Have fun working with the SAP Support Portal today. May your downloads be quick and painless!
