52700 - You can jump to a particular row of the report, and can scroll to load more data.
52928 - When a report uses 4 or fewer time periods, a time change accelerator appears at the bottom of the report and lets you quickly change the time periods uses on the report.

54104 - There is a new interface for creating calculated columns, which allows using calculated columns as inputs to each other
54171 - When selecting which dashboard to add an object too, there are more helpful messages about why some dashbords are unavailable.
54185 - The options in the menu bar have been rearranged
54208 - Dashboard object creation can now be done from within the dashboard and from MITS Report.

54225 - When creating a dashboard object, it no longer asks you for what cell to use, it just uses the bottom right cell.
54290 - Enhanced the content validator to add a new section to the cube-specific summary portion of the content validation results that covers warnings that are not associated with a specific cube. It includes invalid MQL statements, unsupported dashboard items and MRQL content validation errors.
54317 - Total rows on reports have different labels than they used to, and there's no more column of plusses and equals.
54318 - The help link now says "MITS Help" instead of "User Guide" and points to http://help.mits.com unless you override MITSDiscover.help.url in the properties file.

54384 - To support multi-company sites where the different companies' information is stored on separate servers, it's now possible to perform the same SQL extraction over multiple relational connections.
54389 - The admin pages now include a section for managing "connection properties" that permit administrators to configure values that can be swapped into the SQL statements executed over each relational connection in MITS Report.
54439 - SQL extractions now can have multiple extractions into the same file. The UI for SQL management now lets you select which extractions into a file occur.
54451 - Now allowing the admin user in MITS Report to be given access to the content on the system. Setting the "admin.access.mode" property to FULL_ACCESS grants the admin user full permissions on all aspects of the application, similar to the MITS Discover admin user. It also allows the admin user to authenticate against MITS Discover. Setting it to ADMINISTRATIVE gives the user the same permissions they used to have.
54504 - Though there is no column maintenance feature in this release, the column's expression is visible to users with the Administration permission by viewing the "additional column info" section on the column heading's dropdown.
54514 - On the manage users listing page, users and templates are marked in red if they have restrictions on invalid accumulators.

51879 - Tilde is no longer allowed in column template ids.
51889 - Equals sign is no longer allowed in column template ids.
51890 - Exclamation characters are no longer allowed in column template IDs.
52060 - The same columns will always appear on your detail display regardless of what you've drilled down by, rather than dropping columns that correlate to the drill down path.
52321 - Now you can filter to values that are empty or not empty, even on numeric columns.
52435 - The old style calculated columns could not handle a bang field with an underscore. The new style calculated columns can.
52635 - Fixed the content validator catching issues with chart drilldown paths on generated-path dashboards.
52764 - Scrolling into reports is faster than it was in 11.0-B. Some dashboards run faster the second time.

54072 - The list of cubes in a dashboard's footer now includes cubes used only in time comparison grid objects
54076 - Avoiding a case when MITS Report objects on dashboards could error out due to a calculated column that has not been materialized
54095 - Fixed an issue where attempting to re-render a dashboard would cause the data to not load.
54099 - Fixed a rare case where use of a C4 column could sometimes cause fewer rows to appear on the report than expected.
54108 - In new style calculated columns, the resulting treatment for the column is improved for the rare case that either has a scale set. If both columns are using the same precision, use the highest scaling. If the columns use different precisions, use the scale of the column of the highest precision.
54122 - Improved error messages in MITS Discover when the MITS Report evaluation period has expired.

54183 - Fixed support for SSELECT on identifiers in cube management.
54230 - Fixed an issue where the content refactor tool would change OR to ! in expressions and cause column compilation errors.
54233 - Fixed a bug that prevented exporting a report to PDF that contained a calculated column that used the "Days Elapsed Between" function that resulted in that column containing more than two digits.

54484 - For cubes with complicated drill down paths, cube management sometimes would take a very long time to load. With this change it will give up after 5 minutes and just put all the paths into the explicit paths section.
54487 - User names in user management now appear in alphabetical order regardless of case.
54493 - When unified authentication is set up, when a user authenticates into the product, the links appear immediately instead of after a delay.
54497 - Fixed a bug when using UniData on UOJ that caused multivalue to crash when using a Preprocess during an Incremental build.
54506 - Fixed an internal error during incremental updats that prevented user stats from being recorded for the extraction.
54512 - Now more robustly locking out users with security restrictions on invalid accumulators.
54536 - Fixed a missing word on a modal.
54546 - Fixed an issue where an Extraction that takes less than one second would cause the job to be executed more than once. If the extraction sent emails, each extraction would send out emails.

54374 - Fixing the time change accelerator for certain cube configuration edge cases.
54464 - Fixed a bug that would crash cube wrapup when both LAST.FISCAL.MONTH and MONTH.ENDS were both set.
52221 - This is a clarification around the terms used within the product to prevent customer confusion. Going forward External Columns will refer to the Columns from another cube and Related Columns will be a consolidation of the Bang Field, External Columns (old), and Secondary Fields which are all terms for the same field types.
52333 - For Full screen charting, we are not hamburgering the sub-menu.
52420 - Removing columns using the column selector by double clicking them currently doesn't work on iPad Safari.
52790 - Now a new tab comes up when drilling across from a Report. (not a chart or other dashboard object)
53146 - The Advanced Export link found on the library listing page for Reports has been removed

53766 - For both the Cube Update Time and the Additional Information box under the column heading, if you're on an iPad, they don't close until you click something else. Apparently this is a bootstrap issue.
53825 - There is a slight change for how Modify MQL works: 1. If the character should be encoded, and it's not a [ or ], then Modify MQL will encode it. 2. If the character is a [ or ] then Modify MQL will tell you to encode it and will tell you how.
54096 - Related file columns (aka bang fields) now use spaces instead of underscores in their column headings.
54145 - If you select, as input to a calculated column, a date field, time field, or a field with no treatment, via the UI, you will receive an error that you can't use that column.
54258 - In 11, a line chart with only one point will show just a tiny little dot.
54286 - In the beta, we show an error if you have columns on a report using more than 6 other cubes. In 11 that limit is increased to 12.

53138 - In the create report wizard, time periods cleared out when you select new metric.
53141 - In the column selector, the grouping of non-metric columns under each cube in "columns from other hypercubes" is slightly different than the grouping in the local cube.
53183 - When Discover users are forcibly logged out by enabling or disabling Active Directory, their Report counterparts aren't logged out.
53197 - If a user is logged in, and another user changes their permissions, the user doesn't get the permission update until they log out and back in.

54252 - Dashboards are styled somewhat differently than they used to be and may end up not fitting on one pdf page.
54264 - The Report filtering UI doesn't let you remove a column but retain its filtering if it's a multivalue column.
54280 - Directly after adding a dashboard object from a MitsDiscover Report or a MitsReport Report, if you close the browser tab, there is no warning about unsaved changes.
54312 - When creating a dashboard object from a report, expanding individual sections of suppressed rows are ignored.

54412 - If your browser window is particularly small, buttons might be off the bottom of the screen.
54472 - If you have the gateway and the accounts on different systems, and the db server for the accounts has a different date/time, when building cubes (extractions and building), you briefly see the time according to the db accounts date before going back to the app server's date.
54485 - If you have cubes with very large outlines, you may get an OutOfMemoryError when attempting to open cube management. Please talk to MITS Support about tuning the memory usage of your MITS instance.
54519 - In certain rare circumstances while Active Directory is in use, an administrator gets errors about bad password characters when modifying a user. The workaround is for the user to log in, which will fix them, or for the admin to turn AD off and back on, which will fix all the users.
54533 - For Unidata, if you have too many prefixes, please set up the cube to use prefix files and the java cube builder.
41949 - When MITS Report is authenticating against MITS Discover, user names are not case-sensitive. When authentication is local, they are case sensitive.
47050 - When modifying a report, the data may reload after making changes, even if it's not strictly necessary.
