More responsive big data visualizations
Big data visualizations using live queries, especially towards large OLAP data sources like SAP BW and Oracle Essbase, are now much quicker to respond to and also mark changes you make.
Automatically adjusted zoom sliders
Visualizations with zoom-sliders that now auto-zoom when the data changes (e.g, when filtering) and when sliders are at the end of their range.
Color picker is now available in Spotfire Analyst
Spotfire Analyst now has a color picker that makes it easy to create analyses that follow your corporate color scheme, the color scheme of a website or the like. Just pick the color you want from anywhere on your screen and use it in the custom theme editor.
Responsive page layout for mobile devices
The Spotfire page layout is now responsive, so when a page is viewed on a small device like a phone, the layout organizes to suit the screen. The responsive layout enables vertical scrolling if the page is too large to view on the screen directly.
Column selectors look nicer
The column selectors in Spotfire now have an improved look and feel and are only displayed in the visualization over which the mouse pointer is positioned.
Join data in the Spotfire Business Author web client
You can now add columns to a data table using Spotfire Business Author web client.

Edit on-demand settings on data source level
You can now quickly edit on-demand settings for each individual data source in a data table.

Timeout setting for Cloudera Impala connector
A timeout setting has now been added to the Cloudera Impala connector. This allows you to let Impala queries run for longer. For example, this allows running queries to complete when you are extracting result data sets into the in-memory data engine of Spotfire.
REST API to run Automation Services jobs
Execution of Automation Services jobs can now be triggered from an external application using a REST API. A job can either be stored in the Spotfire library or passed as an argument. The API uses an OAuth2 based authentication/authorization mechanism.
OAuth2 support for the Web Service (SOAP) API
The Web Service (SOAP) APIs (LibraryService, UserDirectoryService, UpdateAnalysisService, InformationModelService, LicenseService and SecurityService) now uses a OAuth2 based authentication/authorization mechanism. This means that the API client only needs to support a single authentication method that will work with any Spotfire Server authentication configuration.

Work with multiple versions of Spotfire Analyst
