I'm interested in the 1.3.9 release. I can't find any documentation of how to use or install the xmla file. Ofcourse I can get 1.3.7 to work by downloading the dll. Can anybody get me started?

The only file I found is: ASSP_1_3_9.xmla

Thanks in advance

Hmm, at the time we wree debating whether we should make the new drillthrough pattern the default and we have not re-visited this to make a full release. But using the xmla file is not hard. The steps are:
  1. Download the file to a machine that has SSMS installed
  2. Double-click on the file to open it in SSMS
  3. Enter the server name when the connection dialog opens
  4. Click the Execute button (or press the F5 key)
You can run
CALL ASSP.AssemblyVersion() 
to check that 1.3.9 installed correctly
