I learned on the Business Objects Board (BOB) this morning that Fixpack 1 has been released for Xcelsius 2008 SP1. The fixpack corrects some outstanding issues, some which were introduced in SP1 not present in the original release of Xcelsius 2008. The fixpack and the list of fixed issues can be downloaded from the SAP Support Portal.
My recommendation is to begin by installing on a test environment. There doesn’t seem to be a way to roll back/uninstall the fixpack without completely uninstalling Xcelsius 2008 SP1 and reinstalling it.
A word of caution: my existing dashboards required some gentle remapping of QaaWS fields that mysteriously became unmapped. Of course, the remapping process is tedious whenever you have to do it, and I wasn’t thrilled that a “fix pack” was contributing to my insanity.
Xcelsius 2008 SP1’s version number is 188.8.131.52 and build number is 12,1,0,247.
Once FP1 is applied, the version number is 184.108.40.206 and build number is 12,1,1,344.
