Dear Pentaho Community,

We are happy to announce the release of OpenI 3.0.1 as a plug-in for Pentaho CE. With this release, we are focusing more on developing new features on top of Pentaho instead of OpenI being a BI Server in itself (as in our prior versions)

The OpenI plugin for Pentaho provides a simple and clean user interface to visualize data in OLAP cubes. It supports both direct Mondrian and xmla based connections like Microsoft SSAS, plus provides OpenI specific features like:

** Explore OLAP cube data – point to a cube, choose a metric, and instantly chart the metric against all available dimensions
** Write custom SQL for drillthrough to return more detailed data sets (instead of just identifiers)
** Post drillthrough results directly to an external web service (instead of always having to download to local machine)
** and many more..

A demo video is available at - http://youtu.be/MLX83EXG8uM

You can download the plug-in at - https://sourceforge.net/projects/openi/files/openi-3.0/

Documentation is at - http://wiki.openi.org/openi-pentaho-plugin

We would love to hear your feedback.

Thanks
