Mondrian Forums are Moving!

Pentaho Community Connection

We are pleased to announce that on December 10, 2006, we will be moving the Pentaho project forums to a new, faster, more full-featured forum site. This move includes the forums for the Pentaho project, the Mondrian project, the Kettle project and the JFreeReport project.

The objective for moving the project forums is simple and sincere - we wish to provide the very best community environment for all of our communities to work, play and develop in. All of the project forums have room to grow toward this objective. Each project (ie., Mondrian, Kettle, Pentaho) will have it's own portal into the forums for those community members who wish to remain focused on the individual project. We also now have the added benefit of providing integrated resources for the community that is using multiple Pentaho projects or the entire BI suite. ... read more

Pentaho Releases First Milestone Build of Pentaho Metadata

Pentaho has released the first milestone release of Pentaho Metadata(PMD)
including the new Metadata Editor(PME)!

Released under the Mozilla Public License (MPL), Pentaho's new open source
metadata capabilities enable administrators to define a layer of abstraction
to shield the common business user from the complexities of underlying
databases. Administrators leverage their deep understanding of source
systems to convert complex tables, relationships, indexes, and other
concepts foreign to a business user, into a user-friendly model reflecting
how they think of their business - in terms like customers, products and
markets. These "business views" can be further enriched by defining security
parameters that limit data access to authorized users, default formatting
for data fields, column suppression, and additional translations for
business views used in multi-lingual deployments. ... read more
