Taking a look at Lumira 1.18 – Initial Observations

After reading  What’s New in SAP Lumira 1.18 (summary)  by SAP’s Sharon Om, I started taking a look.  Because the auto-update to the desktop updated just yesterday I first looked at Lumira Cloud.  You can also see what is new in the help.

To try this myself I looked at the first half of 2014 ASUG BI Community Webcast statistics which you can view here:

I tried out the reordering of visualizations on Lumira Cloud:


It works easily.

One item I noticed is that the Lumira Cloud doesn’t contain Slideshows:


It is available in the Lumira Desktop:


Here is the first screen of the slideshow in Lumira Cloud:


It also displays fine in Internet Explorer 11.

However the same Lumira Cloud story isn’t displaying for me in Firefox:


I just see the three dots.  I looked in the Lumira 1.18 restrictions guide but I didn’t see Firefox listed.  It could be my machine.

Another observation on the Desktop – the fonts of the rooms appears larger to me:


It was stated on the SCN discussion area that this release was focusing on quality.
