New link beside lang is added to support this feature, which allow selection of a particular theme for a project. A sample theme is available in

Prerequisite to add new theme for project:
1. folder named 'theme' must be added to project folder.
2. related theme folder must be added to 'theme' folder, which should include 'images' folder, common.css, default_green.css, menu_green.css, context_menu.css, and tabs.css.

Note: new theme folder structure must be identical to sample theme folder 'rime'.

3. SSAS2005 new feature support

1. Multiple hierarchy support.
2. Multiple member selection in slicer.

 4.  View-Only Analysis An administrator can now create an analysis in view-only mode, meaning the users can view the analysis only in a "static" mode. This is in response to some feedback where users wanted to create analyses that had a fixed template, and also when they want to restrict how much data can be viewed by the user.

Known Issues :

    1. Member selection under hierarchy in Slicer (Ref. Bug#2796895 from tracker)

    Note : There are three options provided in the project settings page - first for single selection , second for multiple selection ( calculated member ) and third one for multiple selection ( SSAS 2005). So for the multiple selection in the case of SSAS 2005, the user needs to select the third option. The approach works in all conditions except a case, when the user selects multiple calculated members as slicers. need to restrict the user from doing this.

    2. Jboss versions 4.2.2.GA is tested. Lower version of JBoss may not work. You should consult JBoss documentation about the built-in jars and its web container, and then create a custom build to create an openi.war that (a) includes jars not provided by JBoss and (b) excluded jars provided by JBoss.

    3. We have not tested OpenI with Tomcat versions prior to 6.0, so an approach to creating a custom build similar to JBoss is recommended.
