PerformancePoint Services 2010 (PPS) Hotfixes

Yesterday I decided to take a quick glance at the TechNet Support site to see if there had been any new hotfixes released for the latest version of PerformancePoint.  I know that there was a fix added in SQL Server 2008 R2 CU5, PerformancePoint Services 2010 Analytical Grid Filter Fix, Sort of, but I was wondering if there was anything else.  Well it turns out there has been.  So far I was able to track down 3 hotfixes in addition to the SQL CU and then there has also been a SharePoint CU as well that includes these as well.

Title KB Article Information
SharePoint Server 2010 Cumulative Update Server Hotfix Package (MOSS server-package): March 3, 2011 KB 2475878 Cumulative update of hotfixes for SharePoint Server 2010
PerformancePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (ppsmawfe-x-none.msp, ppsmamui-xx-xx.msp): February 22, 2011 KB 2496951 Query String (URL) filter web part fix with scorecards and decomposition tree
FIX: An analytic grid that is connected to SSAS 2008 R2 returns incorrect data when you apply a filter to the analytic grid in PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer KB 2463203 The fix for this is actually included in CU 5 for SQL Server 2008 R2. Refer to my blog posting above that discusses the issue and shows what has been done. There is a forum thread in regards to this as well – filter value function not working on analytic grid
PerformancePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (ppsmamui-xx-xx.msp, ppsmawfe-x-none.msp): December 14, 2010 KB 2466270 Scorecard fix for dimension names that include a % symbol.
PerformancePoint Server 2010 hotfix package (Ppsmawfe.msp): October 26, 2010 KB 2422440 Fix for Decomposition Tree displaying captions in multiple languages for the MUI


So far this is all I have tracked down.  Hopefully now that this is fully baked into the SharePoint product now, for the most part, that the hotfixes and updates will be released a bit more frequently and be easier to track down.  Maybe the PPS team will even blog about them as well?  After all they took a six month break from blogging, so hopefully they have some good stuff built up to share now.

If you are looking for a list of fixes for PerformancePoint 2007 I have one compiled here – PerformancePoint Server 2007 Build List and Hotfix Update.
