Oracle released the new version of Essbase / Planning / HFM yesterday; it is now available at http://edelivery.oracle.com/. My friend Edward Roske sent me an email at 2 am this morning telling me it is available. He has posted more detailed information about the release on his blog at http://looksmarter.blogspot.com/2008/07/epm-11x-generally-available.html.
I am downloading it now. I will have my infrastructure person build a VM Monday so we can compile/test our Essbase services against this version and provide support for Dodeca within the next few days.
More fun with Vess, the Essbase JDBC driver
