The new features in this release are:
  • Many improvements to Search including:
    • Allowing multiple search terms
    • Search performance improvements by detecting whether cube is case sensitive
    • Search performance improvements by detecting whether searching on the server or on the client will be quicker under current network conditions
    • Performance improvements when adding search results to the PivotTable when members are on rows or columns
    • Allowing you to search only one level of a hierarchy or all levels
    • Allowing you to search in hierarchies that aren't in the PivotTable if you choose Show All Hierarchies
    • Search improvement so it now successfully filters to the members you have chosen if your field is on rows or columns of the PivotTable.
    • Stability improvements when there are many search results
    • Added a new “Measures (caption only)” search option
    • The column header for the search results now allows a "check all" action so you don’t have to check each row.



This release does fix a few minor bugs:
  • Fixing a bug where Disable Auto Refresh threw an error if there were native PivotTables (PivotTables which are summarizing data on an Excel sheet rather than connected to Power Pivot)
  • Fixing error messages when you embed an Excel document in Word or PowerPoint
  • Fixing issue when cancelling a search when your connection includes stored username/password in the connection string

Great way to explore the MDX behind a pivot table. The ability to add calculated fields fills a much-needed gap in AS/Excel functionality.
