Release Notes

This release addresses the Issue 10567, which was a recursive view recursing more than 100 times.
This was caused by the addition of SQL Parsing in the previous release, which enables the parsing of SQL within Lookup's, which can result in a loop.

For example:
If you have a lookup against a table that you subsequently load data into, you will get a loop.

It also addresses an issue where the first analysis into a clean database doesn't show in the Viewer.

Added functionallity for the Kimball SCD http://kimballscd.codeplex.com/ has been incorporated for SQL 2008, and may work for SQL 2005, if I guessed the UserComponentTypeName correctly. If I haven't please let me know and I will correct this...

The reports (for reporting services) may not work, as I haven't tested these.

If you encounter any issues, or statements that don't parse, please raise them as Issues, and I will address them.
Any suggestions are welcome in the Discussions page.

Thanks a lot for further developing this tool! This should really be an out of the box functionality of the MSFT BI Toolstack... maybe in Denali?
