Microsoft also released the following statement:
“The two primary changes for this release include:
- Support for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 – Management Reporter 2012 has been fully tested on the latest version of SQL Server
- Updates to currency translation for Dynamics GP users – Management Reporter 2012 will return individual exchange rates for each column of data for General Ledger accounts, using the Current or Spot rate translation type in Dynamics GP. This allows for comparative balance sheet reporting.
With this release, we’ve continued to make significant impacts on product quality and performance, including resolving more than 70 bugs.
Please also note that this is the final release for the Dynamics AX 2012 INTFx data provider. Dynamics AX 2012 customers should make plans to transition to the Data Mart provider; you will see improved performance and stability with this Dynamics AX 2012 option.
We expect to keep up a regular release cadence with multiple releases during the year. These updates will be a combination of new features and issue resolution to provide you with ongoing value with your Management Reporter investment.”
