January 13, 2008 - Simba Technologies Inc. announced the release of SimbaProvider OLAP SDK 4.2. 


SimbaProvider OLAP SDK 4.2 incorporates several enhancements, including a new Linux-based MDX engine, an ODBO to XMLA bridge and support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.


This latest SDK release provides greater options to developers by way of newly added support for Red Hat Linux and continued support for Microsoft Windows. Simba added components to easily build platform independent, Java-based XMLA Providers in Version 4.1 of the SDK. The addition of a Linux-based MDX engine in this latest release enables the company’s Linux-based customers to build a fully Linux solution to gain performance with their systems.


Previously, non-Windows customers had to introduce a Windows-based layer within their systems to accommodate MDX processing. By eliminating the need for an added layer in the latest SDK, Linux-based customers will be able to connect directly to a Java-based XMLA Provider for greater efficiency and performance gains.
