SharePoint 2010 Cumulative Update October 2011 is available

UPDATE (11/3/2011): Apparently the documentation that was released is incorrect and should be updated shortly for PerformancePoint Services.  The issue with the context menu is going to be part of the December CU update, so stay tuned.

Just this past week another SharePoint 2010 CU was released.  The one thing that I wanted to point out is that there is a update for PerformancePoint Services (PPS) included in this CU.  What has fixed with PPS?  Additional support for the iPad devices!  There has been a long outstanding issue with being able to utilize the right-click content menu in Analytical Reports on iPad.SharePoint2010 (issue resolution not part of this CU, wait till Dec)

PerformancePoint Services hotfix (KB 2596590)
Issues that this hotfix package fixes

This hotfix package contains several fixes that enable PerformancePoint Dashboard on Apple iPad devices. These fixes provide the following improvements:

  • The fixes enable the “tap and hold” feature so that right-click to open context menus can be accessed. (issue resolution not part of this CU, wait till Dec)
  • The fixes provide several HTML and CSS changes to accommodate inconsistencies in the way that Apple Safari displays dashboards on iPad devices.

This is build 14.0.6112.5000 of the cumulative update package.

So if you have people trying to leverage iPad devices with your PerformancePoint dashboards in SharePoint 2010 go ahead and download the new CU to provide them the fully benefits of the analytical functionality.

    Hey Dan,

    I tried installing the CI and it seemed to go fine. However, when I pointed to an existing PPS dashboard, still no right-click type functionality on an iPad. Do you know if you have tried this or not on an iPad or know of any other changes that have to happen to enable it?

      I have not tried it and wouldn’t do much good because I don’t have an iPad to test with. I would verify in Central Admin that the updates have all completed successfully. I would also verify in Dashboard Designer (Designer Options->Resources) that you are on the latest build number. Once that is confirmed I might try to redeploy the dashboard to see if that has some impact to provide support for the trimmed down browser. There must be some change with the javascript that is being done because I know that it wasn’t supported on the iPad device previously. Hopefully saving the report and publishing the dashboard provides some changes to the underlying files that get deployed. Would be interested to perform a file compare to see what the change was as well.

      So the context menu fix is slated for Dec CU, online documentation was incorrect and is being fixed for the Oct CU fixes. Sorry for the false alarm.

      Just have to wait a little longer, but it is coming.

    Please note that this cumulative update of 2011 for SharePoint 2010 is a problem with the images in the users MYSITE.
    In addition, I found this on our DEV CU has enabled sites throughout the body organizing content that brings up the library club systematically :-(((((
