Major new functionality
#23151 Grouping of columns Multidimension table (Desktop)
It is now possible to create a column group based on data in a Multidimensional table. For eksample when repeating over the day dimension, you can group the columns in Weeks (or Month).
Minor new functionality
#23123 The "Consume a REST Service" effect supports Client Certificate and Server Certificate Validation (Desktop;Services;Studio)
The Consume a REST Service effect now includes a new, optional Certificate Thumbprint field that can be used to attach a client certificate to the REST request. The certificate must be installed in the Windows certificate store and is referenced using its thumbprint (hexadecimal string). Please refer to the article Consuming Web Services with certificate based authentication for details about how to install a client certificate. Please note that, in contrast to consuming (SOAP based) web services, Genus Apps may consume REST services both on the client side and on the server side. The client certificate needs to be installed on the client side or on the server side accordingly, and needs to be accessible from the calling Windows account. You may use the Current User or the Local Machine certificate store, depending on your preferences.
A new Server Certificate Validation field is also introduced. In rare cases the server may present a certificate with a Common Name (CN) that deviates from the host part of the specified URL. Normally, this is an error and the request is rejected. In order to override this behavior you may use the Server Certificate Validation field to specify a substring that should be present in the server certificate's Subject field.
#23152 Consume a web service -- support for adding custom HTTP request headers (Services;Studio)
The Consume a web service effect now includes support for adding custom HTTP request headers. See the updated documentation.

#23157 component: Summary (Desktop;Web)
Summary now has a new option under the heading "summary options" called "display horizontally" and it does exactly that, instead of listing the selections in a list moving from top to bottom it is instead listed side by side left to right.

#23158 Analysis - Marking og exluded items in a pie chart

#23165 Error in copying part objects in sub task (Desktop)
Fixed error when creating part objects in a sub task and copying them back to the master task
#23167 Analysis: Resolved an issue with subtraction operator (Desktop;Web)
If a formula defined in the analysis designer consisted of trailing subtractions, the output of the formula would be evaluated incorrect. For example: 100 50 25, would result in 75, instead of 25.
