Upcoming release of OpenI 1.1

Dear OpenI Community:

Thanks for all your support so far. We have been very pleasantly surprised by the interest, participation, and feedback. We hope to meet your expectations going forward. Also a special thanks to those who contributed their code, time, and just mental CPU-time in general to implement new features and fix existing bugs.

We are currenlty working hard on a 1.1 release, which will mainly focus on providing Mondrian support, among other things. Some of you have already seen active discussion threads both here at OpenI as well as Mondrian forums (thanks a lot to Mondrian team for working on their XMLA interface). Essentially, this release will include Mondrian so you can install OpenI, point to any existing relational database and start building cubes and building interactive OLAP analyses. A beta version should be out this week, and we hope to have a final release within a couple of weeks.

We have also put down our thoughts on the OpenI roadmap at http://wiki.openi.org/index.php/Road_Map. Keeping an open source spirit, we look to you, the community, to provide us feedback, etc. as to how you think the roadmap should shape up. Please get involved, and provide your comments either directly on the wiki, or here on the forum. It really means a lot to us.

We'll keep you posted on 1.1 and other new developments.

Thanks again and best regards,

Sandeep
Project Lead, openi.org
